    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

    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!

    Sea of Thieves talks up its quintessential pirateness in a new top 10 video

    [YT]hfei3v6sP2M[/YT]
    Rare has a new Sea of Thieves video out this week that is a listicle… a listavid? I don’t know. It’s a video that is a list, and this particular list talks up 10 of the game’s high points: its “quintessential pirateness,” friendship-oriented gameplay, deep exploration, opportunity to write your own legend, console/PC crossplay, stream-friendliness, and Rare’s own experience building games, welcoming community, and current test schedule. Mutiny not required!Read more

    Sea of Thieves’ death penalty is unique — and social


    September 22, 2017 19 comments


    [​IMG]

    What happens when you die? Sea of Thieves has its own unique answer to the question. Instead of popping back at a binding point or doing a corpse run, dead characters will arrive on the (pause for dramatic effect) FERRY OF THE DAMNED. Featuring Skipper Dan.


    In this week’s dev video, Senior Designer Shelley Preston talks about how the team wanted to make this ferry a social space while players wait their time-out period. Players who kick the bucket around the same time will appear on the ship together,Read more

    Hate voice chat? You can make it walk the plank in Sea of Thieves


    October 9, 2017 14 comments

    [​IMG]




    If you’ve watched any of the footage of players and devs hamming it up on voice chat while playing Sea of Thieves, you’ve probably gotten the impression that voice comms are going to be pretty important in the game, which is true. But it’s not the only type of communication the Rare devs have planned.



    As a recent video explains, the devs are working on a non-verbal communication system for folks who can’t or don’t want to join the melee on voice comms.


    The basic in-progress demo is currently a scrollable radial menu of phrases that change based on the context of what’s going on when and where the player is. For example,Read more

    Sea of Thieves boards small boats and finds them seaworthy for soloers and duoers

    [YT]z9mcwbTVIWg[/YT]

    While Sea of Thieves’ standard pirate vessels require a crew of four, Rare acknowledged that some players were going to ask for boats that could be manned by one or two for that solo or duo experience.


    Enter the “efficient” and “vulnerable” small ship.


    “When we were making the small ship, we wanted to make it feel significantly different to the large ship,” said Senior Designer Andrew Preston. “We started to looking at how many degrees the ship rotates.Read more

    Sea of Thieves is getting a comic book treatment


    December 19, 2017 15 comments


    [​IMG]

    Every pirate needs some good reading material for those long ocean voyages, assuming that they can read. And now, for the literate and illiterate alike, a Sea of Thieves comic book series is coming for the discriminating adventurers.


    The comic series is being written by Jeremy Whitley and drawn by Rhoald Marcellius and will arrive in stores and online during the game’s launch month of March 2018. It shouldn’t be confused with the game’s official art book, which is being handled by Dark Horse Comics.


    Titan Comics says that the comic will be appropriate for all ages: “In Titan Comics’ brand-new series, follow two competing crews of pirates, bound by a shared past and a single destiny, as they sail the Sea of Thieves in a race to track down an ancient treasure. Along the way they’ll deal with undead hordes, devious traps and their own bitter rivalries, but which crew will emerge victorious and ultimately claim the legendary loot?”Read more

    As I had pre ordered it, I gave it another shot.

    First thing was when I would propose a mission and would acquire a map it would not show in my inventory. After a few log outs and in it started working.

    Again I did not find anything special about this game. It reminds me of WOW on water. The water looks amazing especially in a storm. Rest of the game not so much. It got pretty boring and repetitive. I know MS was looking for a giant hit but I just do not see (sea) it. I was also disappointed that you need to pick a randomly generated avatar instead of getting to customize one yourself.

    I played for hours and did not see one other person.

    I know it sounds like I have a hate on for the game. I don't. I wanted to like it. It's just disappointing.

    At least I have monster hunter. Finally beat Nergigante after 5 days of trying, and 5 days of the wife scowling.
