Sea of Thieves is an open-ended pirate adventure where you make your own stories. Due to its nature, there are numerous hilarious moments which result in the course of normal gameplay. We've compiled some of the hilarious clips from the game where players are either barely avoiding a cannonball or showing off impressive finds.

Lots of chests

This pirate managed to accumulate over a hundred chests.

Sometimes being polite and bowing gets you out of trouble.

Sea of dirigibles?

Sometimes physics can transform an ordinary ship into a rocket.

Proper explosions

This is why you need to stop the pirate with a barrel of gunpowder from sneaking onto your ship.

Projectile barrels

We saved one of the most remarkable clips for last. These pirates use a gunpowder barrel placed near the anterior of the ship as a projectile weapon.

The game has been delayed a few times but we finally have a concrete release date. As announced at The Game Awards 2017, Sea of Thieves is now scheduled to launch on March 20, 2018, on Xbox One and Windows 10. The game will also support Xbox Play Anywhere and native 4K resolution on Xbox One X.
