New Sea Of Thieves Trailer Focues On Online Cooperative Experience

Sea of Thieves, Rare's ambitious open-world online pirate simulator has a new gameplay video, showcasing the developers on a peaceful mission to deliver some treasure. Of course, it isn't long before a gang of scurvy dogs pops in to cause chaos and excitement. The trailer shows off many of the game's unique features, including playing sea shanties on old-timey pirate instruments, plugging leaks made by cannonballs, digging up buried treasure, and adjusting sails to suit the wind. (Please visit the site to view this media) Rare is clearly placing a broad emphasis on teamwork and a lighthearted tone of whimsy and discovery; while it may prove to be possible, it would likely be a significant hassle for a single player to control an entire pirate ship all by themselves, especially with the myriad dangers afoot in Sea of Thieves' sandbox.

Sea of Thieves is set to release in 2017 for Xbox One and PC. For more on this game, see GI's  previous E3 coverage here. [Source: Sea of Thieves]
