Sea of Thieves is a first-person adventure game from Rare. You can go on solo adventures or team up with others to find loot. Today, the game got the Haunted Shores update that adds new cosmetic items and a fleet of ghost ships. You can take a look at the trailer below which details a lot of the content.
This may sound odd, but I'm really excited for the golden pets. They look amazing and even though they have a steampunk aesthetic, fit right into the Sea of Thieves world. The game has grown a lot over the past few months, and if you're looking to dive back in, you should do so now. It's a lot of fun and a vast improvement over when it first launched.

Does it have PvE only play available yet? I played this game on launch day and promptly quit because of griefing.
No, it doesnt restrict PvP. But it's part of the world. You'll fend off hostile players, or play along, and sometimes a jerk will chase you around the map for 2 hours. But it doesnt happen often. And to be fair, the latest update with Emssaries is trying to give aggressive kids something better to do than kill withut reason. That is, kill specific ships.
