Developer Rare has begun releasing new gameplay videos for their upcoming open-world pirate multiplayer game Sea of Thieves. The game was first announced at E3 2015, and we saw a new trailer and gameplay released last year during E3 2016.
The new videos are developer gameplay, in which members of the development team play an Alpha version of the game. In the videos these developers go searching for treasure, do a little navigating, drink and play music together, and engage in some cannonball exchanges with other players and their ship. Continue below to read more about the game and to watch the first two installments of these videos.
