Sea of Thieves latest news: release date, gameplay, price and platforms


The Windows 10 and Xbox One exclusive game is a multiplayer open world game that encourages teamwork. Here’s everything you need to know about Sea of Thieves.
At E3 2016 Microsoft announced a flurry of new releases including Sea of Thieves, the multiplayer action-packed pirate game, exclusive to Windows 10 and Xbox One. The game will be playable through Xbox Play Anywhere, allowing you to play on both PC and console.
Coming from legendary developer Rare, Sea of Thieves is one of our most anticipated releases right now and we have high hopes that it will end up one of the best games on the Xbox One. Here’s everything we know so far, including the potential release date, gameplay details, and trailers.
There’s no official release date for Sea of Thieves yet, though the game was originally expected to come out some time in 2017. Hopefully we’ll find out for sure at E3 2017.
The game will be exclusively released on Xbox One and Windows PC. With Xbox Play Anywhere support, players will be able to play the game on both platforms after buying just one copy (as long as it’s through the official Microsoft digital store) , and their save data will even be synced across both platforms.
You can currently pre-order the game through both Amazon and Game. The PC version of the game is currently listed at £54.99, while the Xbox One version is cheaper at £39.99, while both versions are $59.99 in the US, but those prices are probably placeholders for the moment.
The good news is that if you don’t want to wait, you can play Sea of Thieves right now, and for free.
That’s because the game is part of the Xbox Insider Program, which gives members access to previews of various games, apps, and system updates.
If you want to join the program, follow Microsoft’s instructions here, though be warned that there’s no guarantee that you’ll be selected to test Sea of Thieves.
Sea of Thieves is an open world multiplayer game which involves running around, sailing, exploring, engaging in naval warfare and working as a five-man pirate team.
You’ll be able to play as a five-man ship, which was showcased in the gameplay reveal trailer, but you’ll also be able to sail in smaller one or two player ships. That means that even if the rest of your crew is offline, you’ll still be able to set sail and wreak havoc.
As an adventurous pirate, you’ll naturally be able to entertain yourself by playing music and even drinking. Funnily enough, this feature does make you somewhat tipsy in-game, blurring your vision and making it hard to hard to control your character; so drink responsibly.
In the gameplay trailer, it was shown that various players can have various roles whilst playing the game, with communication being the key to success. Whilst on sail, you can steer, raise/lower the anchor, fire cannons, and even fix water leaks on the lower decks.
In order to keep some realism, the wind can hinder your ship’s performance, meaning you’ll have to plan your attacks or manoeuvres tactically.
The game will contain missions and ways of levelling up, allowing you to customise the look and functionality of your ship. If your ship sinks, it will be vulnerable to plunder from other pirates until you get the chance to reclaim it.
