Sea Of Thieves Launch GameplayTrailer Teases A Kraken Battle
Sea Of Thieves is rife with plenty of opportunities to kill off other pirates and plunder their remains for treasure, and it’s a game very much meant for you to play with your own crew of scurvy dogs. You’ll need to keep your wits about you if you want to survive out there on the ocean on your own, especially against a Kraken.
After many alpha and beta test sessions spread throughout 2017 and early 2018, Microsoft and Rare’s pirate adventure, Sea of Thieves, is almost ready for its big launch. All the swashbuckling action is slated to arrive on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs March 20. To celebrate this event, Rare has released the official launch trailer for Sea of Thieves and it is a doozy.
The trailer gives glimpses of the action that made the game a hit with early access players and streaming viewers, including sword fights, ship fights, and lots of plundering booty. A closer look at the snippets in the trailer reveal some of the content that Rare has been holding back for the full release, including player outfits, emotes, and ship customization.
The highlight of the trailer is most certainly the first real glimpse of the Kraken, a legendary sea monster that supposedly haunted the oceans and lived in the nightmares of anyone who spent their lives at sea. In the trailer, the Kraken appears to have its way with one of the pirate ships. I’m sure everything worked out swimmingly for that crew.
Sea of Thieves launches on March 20th for PC and Xbox One. It’s exclusive to the Windows 10 Store, unfortunately, but you may be able to play it on the cheap with the Xbox Game Pass (if it’s applicable to the PC version).
