Sea of Thieves’ technical alpha is up to 39k testers, but PC crowd is still waiting to be invited

April 14, 2017 8 comments




As Sea of Thieves sails across the choppy waters of its technical alpha tests, the team makes a point to occasionally descending the rigging to give a report in podcast form.


In the game’s latest Tales from the Tavern Podcast, discussion of the technical alpha takes the center stage, with the team saying that 23,000 players were invited for the most recent test, bringing the crowd up to 39,000 in total. This number is only for console, as PC players are still waiting to be included in the testing program (progress is being made on this front, don’t you worry).


The team reports that there’s a lot of improvements in the technical alpha, such as underwater swimming, finite ship resources, better sword gameplay, and retuning skeleton difficulty. One feature that’s only in the discussion phase is a spyglass, which presents the team with many technical challenges.

See the Sea of Thieves devs become tourists in their own game

April 28, 2017 2 comments



Just because you make a game doesn’t mean that you are an automatic expert in it. In the latest Sea of Thieves developer gameplay video, the team shows that even they can become tourists under the right circumstances.


This week, the devs faced off against a team of Xbox players as they raced to scour islands, dig up treasure, and sprint back to a safe port with their booty. Armed conflict and plenty of deaths ensue while the devs start caterwauling in distress.




See the devs play the role of noobs below!

Get ready to sail the high seas in March 2018.



Two years ago, the world was introduced to Sea of Thieves during Microsoft’s E3 2015 press conference in what was essentially a small concept video. Development, by today’s standards, has been slow, as this is now the third E3 that Sea of Thieves has attended. Fortunately, it is also the last.
Rare took to the stage to show a different side of Sea of Thieves this time around, whereas virtually everything to this point has been about PVP between Pirate crews at sea, the game will also feature some slight elements involving supernatural creatures.
Here’s the gameplay demo from the Xbox presser:



Rare had previously teased undead creatures as AI enemies in the past, and it certainly adds a new dynamic to the game. As you probably already know, Sea of Thieves has been in a Closed Alpha state for the last six months, and development will continue to be on-going.
It’s been a long wait for Xbox One fans, but given how incredible this E3 conference has been to this point, better times are just over the horizon.

Sea of Thieves
is the latest game from Rare, exclusive to Xbox One and Windows. According to Rare, it's "The best thing [they've] ever done," and is inarguably one of the most anticipated games of this year. If that wasn't reason enough to dive in, it's currently on Amazon for CDN$39.89.


That's right, $39.89 Canadian. It's the official listing from Microsoft, even. So why is the game on sale for 50% off before it even comes out? It may be a listing error, so if you're planning on getting the game on Xbox One, it would be wise to snatch it up quick.


Sea of Thieves had a great exposition at E3 this year, check it out our coverage if you're not 100% convinced yet.
The game releases on December 29, 2017.

It's a big decision to head into one.




Sea of Thieves is laying it on with little details as evidenced by Developer Rare's latest episode of Inn-side Story, which focuses on the game's Storm systems. While storms aren't anything new to games, Rare's emphasis on their dramatic effect is what stands out. Not only do they look cool, but they affect how you navigate and maintain the ship, just like in the movies.
Here's the video:

As you can see, there's more to sailing than just figuring out a direction and then going there. It's easy to imagine a scenario where a storm stands between you and an island with treasure on it, but going around the storm might force you to engage with an enemy player. So deciding what kind of perils you will face could be a natural and emergent moment simply via the inclusion of Sea of Thieves' storm systems.
Sea of Thieves is coming off a strong showing at E3 2017, where Rare teased the game's storm systems for the first time. Rare is very confident in the game as they have previously called it "the greatest thing [they've] ever done."
Sea of Thieves will release at some point in 2018.
