A multiplayer pirate adventure game
Sea of Thieves is a major release standard game version. So, anyone purchasing the game will receive a special edition that includes in-game goodies to help you look like a real pirate on your first trip. You will receive the hunter knife, pistol, compass, a 10,000-gold bonus, and more. Players who have already joined the game will also receive these bonuses.
Be a pirate and have an exciting adventure
Sea of Thieves is a multiplayer game supporting co-op and PVP gameplay. You will assume the role of a pirate, sailing on the open sea to find treasure and battle other ships. You can sail as part of a crew of up to four people or by yourself, taking on missions and other challenges. You will also sail to multiple locations—to find treasures, transport trade goods and hunt animals.
This game allows everyone to succeed based on skill and strategy instead of mechanically favoring the most gold and reputation. It also focuses on emergent gameplay, meaning crews encountering each other on the seas can choose how to play their encounter. They can fight to control each other's gathered treasure in ship-to-ship or close combat. You must earn gold and develop a reputation to become a pirate legend.
Progression in this game world is achieved through voyages and quests that raise your reputation with trading companies. Building a good reputation among trading companies means you will be entrusted with increasingly complex and dangerous voyages with more fabulous treasures to gain. However, the game does have some repetitive and formulaic quests. Furthermore, the game's graphics made it possible to use water and atmospheric conditions as integral parts of gameplay.
