Sea of Thieves gets action-packed new gameplay trailer, early 2018 release window

On stage at its E3 2017 briefing, Microsoft had quite the treat for Sea of Thieves fans. A full ten minutes of new gameplay footage was shown off, giving us a somewhat humorous look at some of what players can expect upon release. Check it out below:

In addition to the new gameplay footage, Microsoft announced that Sea of Thieves will land at some point in early 2018. For fans that have been eager to get their hands on the game since it was revealed some time ago, that's sure to be good news even if it isn't a firm date.

Once it lands, Sea of Thieves will also be enhanced with 4K and HDR for the new Xbox One X. For more, the Sea of Thieves team is streaming some gameplay live from E3, so check that out below to get an even deeper look at the game.

  • Wow 😎
  • So excited for this game.
  • Dang, not even this makes the launch? Exclusive content seems like it will be lacking from within MS.

  • 2018?  I can't believe I had already preordered SoT months ago.
  • Seriously. That water. That Ocean. That is absolutely incredible. When it was stormy me and my friends sat here watching in 4K and just jaws hit floors. Then he jumped under the surface of the water and looked up. Oh my god. I honestly was blown away by the visuals.
