Today Rare released a brand new slice of gameplay of its upcoming shared-world adventure game Sea of Thieves.
The gameplay shows a crew of developers manning small ships as they explore an island, fire themselves off cannons and get drunk on grog (with a rather funny wobbly effect). Afterwards, they get into a fight against a much bigger fish, but I’ll let you watch the video to see how it ends.
In further news, you don’t need just to watch anymore. The studio announced that all who join their Insider Programme by December 1st will be invited to the next technical alpha, as developers prepare to move out of the alpha itself and into the next phase of testing. Incidentally, we learned that over 200,000 players too part in it so far.
In the meanwhile, you can watch the video below, and enjoy Sea of Thieves’ glorious visual and art style in full 4K.
If you want to see more, you can also enjoy a recent gameplay trailer waving around the #BeMorePirate hashtag, the previous recently-released trailer showing the latest content update, the panel from New York Comic Con with the reveal of the Pirate Code, another trailer showcasing more 4K visuals and an explanation of what the game is all about, one more gameplay video, and a gallery of semi-recent screenshots. You should also definitely check out our video interview with Rare Studio Director Craig Duncan.
Sea of Thieves will launch in early 2018 for Xbox One, Xbox One X and PC. No specific release date has been announced for the moment.
