E3 2017: Can Sea of Thieves Be Out Already?
Today we saw Sea of Thieves for the third E3 in a row. The game looks to be coming along nicely and is now expected to release in early 2018, but there's just one problem. I want it now.
Sea of Thieves is a rare game (not to be confused with the fact that it is being developed by Rare) in that it's a shared world multiplayer game that is all about pirates and dicking around. It really is the perfect game.
Today we got an extended nine minute demo of the game with some rather humorous commentary. Take a look.
The music is perfect. Very reminiscent of Klaus Badelt's Pirates of the Caribbean score. I can't help but fantasize of the day when I can disappear into this pirate world that offers everything from plundering and pillaging, to drinking and accordion playing. Again, it really is the perfect game.
Do I have my worries? Absolutely. As much as I'd love to spend endless hours playing this game with a crew, I'll likely be going in solo, so I hope Rare has made this game very single player friendly. There's also the concern that all we've seen of this game is all this game has to offer. Somehow I doubt that, but it's a common concern associated with this game in particular, and it would plague this seemingly wonderful game if true.
Every day is another day closer to "early 2018" and I'm elated. Sea of Thieves looks to be a one-of-a-kind game that should fit nicely in the Xbox One catalogue.
