Microsoft and Rare’s colorful pirate adventure Sea of Thieves is coming to Xbox One X, and it looks like everything a scurvy dog could want. A new trailer released today shows off a good chunk of it, too.
Take up the role of your own customizable pirate and explore the ocean with a crew you’ve culled together out of your own friends. As you come face-to-face with other ships, you’ll have to stay on guard at all times, as they may want peace, or they may want trouble. If it comes down to it, you may find yourself locked in combat with other ships and their pirate crews, which looks totally sweet.
Beyond fighting off other pirates, you’ll also have to take up arms against menacing sea creatures, hunt for treasure, and tell your very own pirate tales. Perhaps you’ll get your own sea shanties written about you after playing. You never know. Those pirates are crafty.
Sea of Thieves is presented in 4K UHD and HDR on Xbox One X and Windows 10, and it’s headed for release in early 2018. Avast ye, matey! Ready those wallets!
