Rare returns with the pirate adventure Sea of Thieves for PC and Xbox One

Rare isn’t just going back to the past, they’re also looking to the future with Sea of Thieves, their first non-Kinect game in seven years. Arrrr you ready to learn more?

Sea of Thieves is a multiplayer pirate adventure in development for Windows 10 PCs and the Xbox One. The E3 trailer embedded above gives us a small taste of what the game world has to offer, depicting players finding buried treasure, fighting living skeletons, walking the plank, and engaging in ship-to-ship battles on the high seas.

During Micrsoft’s E3 Press Conference on Moday, Rare’s Studio Head, Craig Duncan, told attendees that Sea of Thieves is “by far, the most ambitious game Rare has ever created.” He also touted the game’s “limitless possibilities,” so would-be buccaneers will likely be able to engage in even more pirate shenanigans.

Sea of Thieves will be released in Fall 2016.
