by Rainier on June 12, 2017 @ 11:33 a.m. PDT

Sea of Thieves is an immersive, shared-world adventure game filled with pirates, unexpected dangers and loot for the taking.

Be the pirates you want to be, share adventures with friends and set your own rules, roles and goals in a world where every sail on the horizon is another crew of players with unknown intent.

Explore, fight and live the pirate life together in a unique co-op experience that combines the thrill of adventuring together with friends with the unpredictability of a shared ocean and its threats, both from other players and the world itself.


Get your first look at an experienced crew setting out to decipher a mysterious riddle, seeking hidden treasures while dealing with a horde of skeletons, a vicious storm, and a rival pirate crew with mayhem in mind. All part and parcel of a pirate’s life on the Sea of Thieves! Show attendees then got the chance to crew up and experience the thrill of treasure hunting for themselves.

For the uninitiated, Sea of Thieves lets you form a crew and take to the high seas, undertaking voyages, exploring unclaimed islands in search of treasure and battling dangerous creatures – all in a world where every sail on the horizon is a ship of real players who could turn out to be friends or foes.

What’s most exciting about Sea of Thieves is that it’s being developed in a way that’s unlike anything Rare has ever done before. Our Insider Program gives us an opportunity to hear directly from fans, who in turn get to help shape the game into the experience they want. As part of that, we’re currently in the midst of our Technical Alpha phase, bringing in players early and taking advantage of the great feedback they can offer.

Available worldwide as an Xbox Play Anywhere title in early 2018.


Key Features:

  • A unique co-op experience that combines the thrill of adventuring together with friends with the unpredictability of a shared landscape and its threats, both from other players and the world itself.
  • Designed around players working together with shared goals and rewards, where you’ll go on epic voyages in search of legendary artefacts and buried treasure, but in a world where every sail on the horizon is another crew. What flag are they flying, and what do they want?
  • Crew up with your friends and be the pirates you want, choosing your own roles and goals. Explore the world, take on quests, or seek out conflict. It’s your crew against the world, and how you deal with other crews is entirely up to you.
  • Invites players into a beautiful world with a distinctive art style, ripe for exploration and with mythical creatures lurking on islands and under the inviting surface of the sea…
  • Offers an experience that will evolve over time, landing in players’ hands early and growing thanks to community insights and feedback. New ways to play will be unveiled as the world expands and evolves.
