Sea of Thieves is an upcoming exploration-based pirate game from Rare. The developer is known for many famous franchises including Conker and Banjo-Kazooie. However, in recent years, the team focused on developing Kinect games for Xbox One and Xbox 360. Sea of Thieves is new shift for the developer and it's a concept the team hasn't tackled before.
Sea of Thieves features co-op multiplayer and is played from a first-person perspective. Just like Destiny, it takes place in a shared world inhabited by other players. A group of gamers travel in the open world together and take on different roles. For example, the captain may steer the ship while the other crew members attack enemy vessels. Despite being open-ended, there are numerous quests, loot, and combat opportunities. It's all about finding your own way in this massive realm.
Sea of Thieves has been delayed a few times but today we may have finally recieved a final release date. As announced at The Game Awards 2017, the game is now scheduled for a release on March 20, 2018, across Xbox One and Windows 10. The game will also support native 4K on Xbox One X, utilizing settings equivalent to those of "ultra" on PC.
