Today Rare released a new trailer for the upcoming shared-world adventure game Sea of Thieves.

The video, narrated by Design Director Mike Chapman, explains the lore behind the title, showing how the world was built to evoke a deep history created by pirates that came before the players.

That being said, players have not missed the fun, as according to Chapman, the golden age of piracy has yet to come, and the players themselves will play a key role in it, by becoming pirates of legend. What this exactly means is still fairly mysterious, but also definitely intriguing.

Of course, we also get to see another look at the game’s world and iconic characters, and it looks as gorgeous as ever, thanks to the game’s painterly art style.
