A new trailer for Rare’s Sea of Thieves was revealed at Microsoft’s E3 press conference.
The trailer featured mermaids, undead pirates, the kraken, pirate warfare, and much more that players can expect from the game. Rare’s studio head, Craig Duncan, also spoke about the co-op mode which will be an “adventure with friends.” In the Xbox One and Windows 10 exclusive, other players are enemies. You can see the gameplay trailer below.
Sea of Thieves cropped up at last year’s E3 show as part of Microsoft’s strong lineup of exclusives. Little was revealed about the game beyond tropical settings and pirate ships – and its star developer, Rare, of course. A little later in July, Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President Kudo Tsunoda said it would be one of the best game’s Rare has ever made.
“I think what you’re gonna see in Sea of Thieves as we go forward and start talking more about the game,” said Tsunoda, “is how Rare is enabling that kind of player-generated emotional and memory-driven stories that can happen within a game to happen within Sea of Thieves. And I think that’s what Rare does well. That’s what we’re going to keep having them doing in the future and Sea of Thieves is gonna be the best game that Rare has ever made.”
