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. The game is purported to have elements of first-person gameplay and features user-generated content, in which players have the ability to craft their custom stories by using in-game tools. The game will feature co-op gameplay, and is set in an open world multiplayer environment. The game is currently being tested in closed alpha sessions through the Sea of Thieves Insider Program.

As the video explains, Sea of Thieves' world grows larger and more dangerous with this update. There are now more islands to explore and new challenges to take on, including some that involve stealing gold from other players. Additionally, the update adds fall damage, so you can no longer jump off high-up areas and hope to be just fine. In terms of the new dangers, the update adds skeletal pirates that you'll need to take down with your group of swashbuckling heroes. Here's the video:

I have had this one on my radar for a while now, they are already marketing collectibles for this game and we still don't have a release date. Haven't bought any collectibles for this one yet, I figure if it goes large, they will come out with some killer collectibles. Too many mediocre games in 2016 IMO, so I will wait and see.

Like Bear I have had my eye on it, the art direction reminds me of Fable somewhat. The open world mp setting could make or brake it for some people though especially when you can run about robbing other players.

For those of you still interested in becoming a pirate on PC; know that a new developer diary just dropped for Sea Of Thieves. In the diary, they revealed that an alpha test is coming this Saturday, May 20th (tomorrow). The alpha test will allow you to test out a variety of game mechanics and provide feedback to Rare.



They also revealed that they’ll be bringing the game to Microsoft HQ in Seattle to test the game on a hundred different PCs. That bit of info is important because it says to me they’re taking optimization seriously. They’ll have that data plus the data provided by the thousands of people who have access to the alpha.
They’re currently hard at work on the video settings for the PC version. The alpha is designed to test out their auto detect settings for optimization purposes.
The Xbox One & PC version will have the same content. Rare is also working 4K and cross-platform play for the community.

Here is a "Behind the Scenes" look at the game.
