After it was stuck with only a vague 2017 release date until today, we now know that Sea of Thieves will launch in early 2018 and have a new gameplay trailer to get excited about.
The trailer shows a pirate crew sailing in the world before diving below to explore a shipwreck. A group of sharks then appear and fend off the intruders before they stash their loot and head off towards an island in the search for even more loot. On the island a secret cave is discovered, by following a riddle, which houses a legendary treasure chest along with it’s long deceased owners. Finally the adventurers then brave a storm and a rival crew to get their loot to where it can be sold.
Sea of Thieves will be a play anywhere title for Xbox One and Windows when it launches early next year.
