‘Sea of Thieves’ Now Available on Xbox One and Windows

The highly anticipated pirate-themed video game “Sea of Thieves” was released on March 20, 2018. Available on Microsoft Windows and the Xbox One, with cross-platform play, it features an open-world in which dozens of players can engage ship battles, fight sea monsters and scavenge for loot.

“Sea of Thieves” was first announced in 2015 at Microsoft’s annual Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). Developed by Rare, Microsoft unveiled the game’s Unreal Engine 4, which offered realistic physics paired with smooth, fluid gameplay. Rare and Microsoft had originally planned to launch “Sea of Thieves” in 2017. Like many games, however, the launch date was pushed back.

Something that makes “Sea of Thieves” stand out from other games is its unique open-world, pirate-themed gameplay. It features a shared world in which multiple groups of players will frequently encounter each other. “Sea of Thieves” also features multiple environments, including oceans, underwater caves, land and towns. Furthermore, it includes some comical gameplay elements like the ability to shoot someone out of a cannon.

Because of its focused on a multiplayer style of gameplay, there’s been some concern over griefing in “Sea of Thieves.” While players can perform solo missions, this doesn’t offer the same experience as having ship battles between two or more groups. Unfortunately, some players join games with the purpose of ruining their teammates’ game. Known as griefers, they’re a common problem among many team-oriented multiplayer games, and “Sea of Thieves” is no exception.

In an interview with BBC, developers explained how they they are trying to stop griefing. For instance, players can’t attack other players in their crew. They can swing their sword or use other weapons pointed towards their crew, but this doesn’t cause damage. A player’s attack will only cause damage to non-player characters (NPCs) and players who aren’t a part of their crew.

Rare developers also designed a shared reward system in which all players of a crew are equally rewarded when one player completes a mission. This means a single player can’t steal his or her crew’s reward.

Finally, developers have implemented a feature that allows players to place abusive players in jail. Once jailed, the player is unable to interfere with other players’ gameplay, thus encouraging a healthy environment in which players work together to achieve a common goal.

Power Fuels the Impending Arrival of the Xbox One X

The Xbox One X arrives and Microsoft soon debuts an incredibly powerful 4K console. Come November, the Xbox One X hits retail store shelves and fans of gaming are going to be thrilled at the arrival. The new console might not look as catchy as previous models, but the “backward compatibility and processing power” gives the new console the potential to really shake up the market.

 

The potential for success associated with the Xbox One X connects directly to the ability to give gamers something unique and interesting. A new console that has nothing going for it other than being new is a hit or miss proposition. If a mediocre new console is released roughly the same time a very well-crafted new console is released, the better new console ends up being the big hit.

 

Gamers spend a lot of money as billions of dollars in sales indicate. Since the sheer numbers of gamers is so huge, even a weak console can generate millions in sales. Even millions in revenue do not automatically indicate a success, though. All gaming companies maintain projections of what they look for in sales numbers. A new console that doesn’t live up to hype or delivers nothing special generally stalls with low sales numbers.

 

Microsoft’s new console really does need to deliver on promises of being super-powerful. The console requires a strong hook in order to stimulate interest among gamers. Ironically, the console is very bland looking. Did the designers at Microsoft opt for irony when crafting the look of the world’s most powerful gaming console?

 

Looks really do not matter here. What matters is the console delivers. The Xbox One X really must deliver or else the console will be relegated to the “swing and a miss” status that befell other systems.
