Rare Is Making A Pirate Game, And It Looks Rad

Rare calls it their most ambitious game yet: introducing Sea of Thieves, an Xbox One game all about being a pirate.

That means: sailing, ships, swashbuckling sea captains. The best parts of Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag, but playable with your friends, judging from the footage debuted today. Awesome!

  • I’m glad Rare is doing what they want, but damn if I don’t hate anything and everything pirate related.

  • Let’s hope they still have that spark. I’ve heard a lot of people have left since their glory days.

    • You know people leave studios all the time right? Naughty Dog has lost a tonne of KEY staff over the last 3 years.

      • After the MS buyout apparently a lot of people left. And they haven’t really done anything that’s reached the critical acclaim on their Nintendo days.

  • Kinda reminds me of The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard.. loved that game.. I just hope it turns out to be not just another Sid Meier’s Pirates! game with better graphics.. I really want some more on-shore stuff from my next Pirate game..

  • I had my fill of pirates with Ass Creed Black Flag. This looks worse graphically, but it will be interesting to see the game mechanics they go with. Black Flag pretty much nailed the naval combat aspect in my view.

  • Oh wow, that trailer was amazing. The gumption it must take to present canned animation and a set of heavily scripted animations in such a way to get the audience slathering for product is astounding.
