Sea of Thieves Sets Sail

Xbox Live's Major Nelson announces the official launch of Sea of Thieves as an Xbox Play Anywhere title for Windows 10 and Xbox One. Here's a new live action trailer with a tour of the "Museum of More Pirate" hosted by Sean Astin (who seems to be in the process of becoming Nathan Lane), and the launch trailer features gameplay. Here's the official description of Rare's seafaring action/adventure:

Packed to the seams with sailing and exploring, fighting and plundering, riddle solving and treasure hunting, Sea of Thieves has everything you need to live the pirate life you’ve always dreamed about. Set in a glorious world of exotic islands, hidden treasures and dangers both natural and supernatural, Sea of Thieves immerses you in a new type of multiplayer action. Whether you’re adventuring as a group or sailing solo, you’re bound to encounter other crews – but will they be friends or foes? And how will you respond?

"Been playing the game and it is definitely worth the $60 IMO. How many games are? I think the PS4 people are eating their heart out! :

Looking back now this is the dumbest comment of March.

I think we all know Sea of Thieves turned out to be a joke. Oh and PS4 people are fine we have the 95% rated God of War out next week. Dumbass

No way compared to the games I play, which have a lot more content for a lot less.

Content maybe, but there is a sheer joy to the act of playing some games that make it worthwhile for some people. I've also got hundreds of hours out of $20 (or less) games like Factorio, Kerbal, Eurotruck, PUBG, Men of War Assault Squad etc. This is something different and I think valuable. But maybe I am alone in having a Sea of Thieves shaped hole in my game collection.

Probably should have been half the price though, few MP only games get away with that price tag. I already got my moneys worth out of my Beta sessions and the first few days off this and I still didn't buy it, the Gamepass deal will let me effectively demo it.

Getting matched with lame crews sucks but easy enough to work that out and try again, found a few good groups of randos and had a whale of a time.

This looks... pretty boring. Although that's probably good for the game, as Fortnite/PLUNKBAT look pretty boring to me, and they're making billions of dollars.

Fortnite, boring? ha.

Let's just say my main go to game for the past 6 months has been fortnite, and i got bored of Sea of Thieves within 2 hours.

Definitely worth trying, it's just not worth $60. :/

And because it's a Microsoft Store game, it'll never go on sale.

Agreed it is worth the price, but it's not everyone's mug of grog. PS4 people probably arent really too concerned with Ni No Kuni 2 coming out this week.

Well at least they could have rented some extra servers for launch month.

Blues tends to be ... lets call it a more discerning crowd so despite people's impressions I still would like to try it out as I'm far less discerning than most.

Of course you'll try it out, Prez. It seems you try out every game xD

Haha yes I really do love trying out new games (just not not the no-effort drek that Steam routinely shits out of it's bowels on a weekly basis). More often than not I find games that tend to get downvoted for being buggy, repetitive, or boring to my liking. I can't tell you how many games that have "mixed " or even "mostly negative" reviews on Steam that I've played and got considerable enjoyment out of.

Steam should let us filter the reviews/scores by age, I think. I care basically nothing about what the youngsters think of a game. I'm more interested about what the old and jaded think about them

Still, Windows 10 exclusive? Windows Store only?

We all know the deal, they don't want to spend too much money on hardware so it is all sitting around when players give up on the game. But you need to buy enough to handle the new release surge.
Too bad Microsoft doesn't have some kind of system where they can add/remove servers on the fly as load is needed. /s
