Developer Rare has been releasing developer gameplay videos for their pirate multiplayer game Sea of Thieves for a while now. We shared the first two videos with you earlier this year, and three more have since been released including a new one today.
In the latest video, one group of players encounters another group of players. But instead of having a cannonball fight—as we’ve seen in previous videos and will likely often be the case when the game comes out and people start playing it—they decide to have a friendly ship race. Followed by a not-so-friendly organized battle to the death on an island.
Continue below to watch the videos.
Sea of Thieves is a shared-world adventure game (or â€œSWAG,â€ as weâ€™re fond of calling it). Itâ€™s a multiplayer game with crew co-operation at its core, and our ambition is to let players be the kind of pirates they want to be. Whether youâ€™d like to hunt for legendary treasures, sail to the furthest island in the distance or hunt down rival crews, our ambition is to build a game that lets you pursue whichever adventure your salty heart desires.
