Guns of Icarus
Games Like Sea of Thieves
Let’s start this list off by admitting one thing. Nothing is exactly like Rare’s Sea of Thieves. It is a very unique game, that really is its own experience. There’s no game that you can point to and say, this is another Sea of Thieves-like game that you can play when you’re bored of it. However, there are some aspects of Sea of Thieves that you can focus in on, and find similarities, and that’s the direction this article is going to take.
So let’s start with what is arguably the game most like Sea of Thieves, and that is Guns of Icarus for PC (and soon to be PS4 as well). In Guns of Icarus, you’re up in the clouds instead of the open sea, but the focus is still on ship to ship PvP combat. Guns of Icarus is a game you can “graduate” to after getting tired of Sea of Thieves as it is way more complex and complicated. Not surprising since that is all Guns of Icarus is about: ship to ship combat.
Players can choose from many different kinds of ships, all with different sets of weapons, and will have a crew of human-controlled players that each have specializations, such as a Gunner, Engineer, or Pilot. Again, if you really enjoyed Sea of Thieves’ ship to ship combat (or only have a PS4, again it’s coming soon!) and want a step up in complexity, Guns of Icarus is a solid choice.
