Sea of Thieves

Figured this deserves it's own thread now rather than clogging up the Xbox Gaming thread



Quote:
Sea of Thieves is an upcoming action-adventure video game developed by Rare and published by Microsoft Studios for Microsoft Windows and Xbox One, set for release in 2017.

Innovative co-op gameplay in a shared world
Work together as a pirate crew with shared goals and rewards, where you’ll go on epic voyages in search of legendary artifacts and buried treasure, but where the potential threat of other players always lurks over the horizon.

Be the pirates you want to be
Crew up with your friends and be the pirates you want, choosing your own roles and goals. Explore the world, take on quests, or seek out conflict. It’s your crew against the world, and how you deal with other crews is entirely up to you.

A rich fantastical world
Explore a beautiful world with a distinctive art style that is ripe for discovery and adventure, with mythical creatures lurking on islands and under the inviting surface of the sea.
The game is currently in technical alpha stage -and you can join the insider program here: https://www.seaofthieves.com/insider

Not convinced on this one. Looks like a good idea if you have a regular group of players or belong to a clan, but the reality for most of us will be different. Most of us are going to have to team up with strangers, how will that experience be? And the game will inevitably be full of bigger and badder gangs making battles an exercise in futility.

Out of all the times I have played, i have been with strangers and it has always worked out well.
We've had fun, never any issue and everyone had a Mic so we could communicate

Yeah same goes for me, I've only played in one play test which was on last week

I went in with 3 randoms and normally these days I'm a grumpy shît who doesn't converse outside of parties with friends, but we were all chatting away by the end and it was genuinely some of the best fun I've had online in a long time!

I really really enjoyed that. There's a lot of team work required but a very good experience for an Alpha.

Yea that was a very enjoyable alpha, really makes you work together.

Looking forward to getting my hands on it again via a beta.

As soon as we got into a game, I saw a ship behind us so we went in for the attack.
Was a great laugh, we bumped into the same ship later on and just kept sinking them, even taking their chests.
Loved the cursed chests, they were a laugh but I think the best part was when we were battling the ship from earlier and another ship pulls up so we were boarding and shooting both ships, we sunk both.
Not fond of the sword fight though
Anyone play on Wednesdays?

We couldn't figure out why our ship was filling up with water. Turned out to be the chest of sorrow nice little touch.
