Tying in with the release of the Xbox One X, the latest trailer for Rare's shared world adventure game showcases Sea of Thieves' gorgeous visuals and combat. Combat seems to be centered around getting the drop on enemies and parrying their blows if you're engaged in a sword fight.
Rare is known for many famous franchises including Conker and Banjo-Kazooie. However, for the past few years, the team was focused on developing Kinect games for Xbox One and Xbox 360. Sea of Thieves seems like a return to form if it lives up to the developer's promises.
The game features co-op multiplayer and is played from a first-person perspective. A group of players travel in the open world together and take on different roles. For example, the captain may steer the ship while the other individuals attack enemy vessels with cannons. Despite being open-ended, there are numerous quests, loot and fighting opportunities. It's all about finding your way in this massive oceanic world.
Sea of Thieves has been delayed a few times and now is scheduled to release in 2018. The game runs at native 4K resolution on Xbox One X. The developers made is clear that this is native 4K and doesn't utilize techniques like upscaling or checkerboarding found in many other games.
