Microsoft shared a nice batch of screenshots of Rare's upcoming game Sea of Thieves, showing pirates aplenty.

June 12, 2017

Following Microsoft’s E3 2017 press briefing, the house of Xbox released a sizable batch of screenshots of Sea of Thieves.

The screenshots showcase gameplay, and they’re as painterly and colorful as ever, giving us a glimpse on combat, ships, weather, treasure, underwater diving, sharks, and more. Incidentally, they’re all presented in glorious 4K resolution.

We also get to see plenty of pieces of artwork featuring the game’s peculiar cast of pirates, on top of two really beautiful pieces of key art. Interestingly, the pirates appear to belong to different groups, including conquistadores, bilge rats, and mutineers.


Sea of Thieves is a shared world adventure game currently in development at Rare, and will allow players to form their crews, sail and customize their ships, and navigate the open world in search of adventure and loot.

You can check all the screenshots out below, and if you want to see more, you can also enjoy the gameplay trailer showcased during the press conference. On top of that, you can watch Phil Spencer himself play the technical alpha, and a recent video about live campaigns and events.

Sea of Thieves was supposed to come this year, but yesterday we learned that it will launch in early 2018.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
