What you need to know
- Sea of Thieves is an ongoing open-world pirate sandbox adventure title.
- In 2021, Sea of Thieves surpassed 25 million players on Xbox and PC.
- Rare announced a preview livestream for Thursday, Jan. 27, which will detail what the team is calling its "biggest year yet" for the game.
In a quick teaser video posted on social media Monday, the team at Rare has announced its plans to host a preview livestream for Sea of Thieves on Thursday, Jan. 27, at 6 pm GMT. The team plans to give players a look at what to expect from the game in the coming year.
Coming off a tremendous 2021 filled with massive updates and even a Pirates of the Caribbean crossover, this video claims that 2022 will be this swashbuckling sandbox title's "biggest year yet." This certainly isn't the first time we've heard this sentiment shared by the folks from Sea of Thieves, but considering what they've managed to deliver since these declarations, many players are excited to see what the future holds.
With this video clocking in at a whopping 44 seconds, the contents of the upcoming preview livestream remain unknown. However, it simply wouldn't be a Sea of Thieves promotional video without some strategically placed teases sprinkled throughout. For keen-eyed pirates searching for clues, you might notice what appears to be a quick shot of the Golden Sands outpost seemingly destroyed, as well as a large stone fortress and possibly even the reveal of a mysterious new figure on the seas. While passionate Sea of Thieves fans are left with plenty of questions and theories, hopefully, many of these will be detailed this Thursday.
In addition to this preview livestream, Sea of Thieves will also be hosting its first-ever Community Day on Jan. 30. which will be packed with limited-time in-game rewards and unique Twitch Drops. If you haven't tried Sea of Thieves for yourself, there's really never been a better time. As one of the best games on Xbox Game Pass, there's a good reason more than 25 million people have played Sea of Thieves on Xbox and PC.
