I haven't played the game but I don't know if I want to buy it or not. Although I love multiplayer games, I usually play alone or with just one other friend. So I don't know.
I’m so happy I raided a skeleton fort in the final beta. I got so much loot!!
The trend for this game often seems to be skepticism of the "content", until the skeptic in question actually plays it, at which point they are sold.
As someone who has been playing since one of the technical alphas, the game is a ton of fun. I actually do have some minor worries about mid-to-long term replayability, but considering you could be playing this game for as little as $10 a month with Game Pass, it's absolutely worth taking the plunge.
The trick is to understand that the voyages aren't "content" in any standard sense. They are just a means to get you out on the seas doing stuff. Operating the boat, boarding other ships, and other chaos along the way – THAT is the "content", and so far, it's been fun as hell to both play, and watch other people doing.
I feel like someone from Bungie left and helped create this game. haha The vocabulary they use for this video is very similar to how they explained Destiny. Or am I crazy?
Example: Become Legend – End Game content – Cosmetic items – Easter Eggs.
The only complaint I have about this game is the combat. It's slow and it feels like if you get the first hit on someone or something you always win. They need like a dodge or roll away ability for characters. Or make block ability actually work, because I have seen that fail over and over. I'm just not sure the game is worth $60. Especially if they put cosmetics for sale in the game. Make the game free like Fortnite and people will feel like spending some money in the game is fine to do. That's my opinion.
Will it ever come to ps4
A pirate I was meant to be, trim the sails and roam the sea!
They show it like there's a lot of content in this game but actually it's not that much to do. The way to not get bored quickly is to have a good, friendly crew, that's the core of the game I guess, the co-op. I played alone or with strangers in final beta and I had enough after maybe 5-6 hours. The full game isn't bringing that much more to do. It's repetetive as hell. Go to marked island, fight some skeletons, return chest, repeat infinitly, or, take cages from merchant, find some god damn chickens or pigs, return them in time, repeat forever. Basically fetch quest hidden behind nice aesthetics. I admit dogfightes are quite enjoyable, galeons are powerful, but you can't stand a slight chance against them in sloop, never ever. For me Sea of Thieves is too expensive for a amount of content it has, and sometimes it feels like a pirate-themed chatroom with some additional features and not a full proper game. So again, playing with real friends is essential, quests on their own are boooring after few hours, no gamelore or any plot whatsoever. Please, I wish I could see more mechanics being added to make this game interesting. Arrr!
We learned its repetitive, overpriced shit for utter babies that drool at twitch.
This game is beautiful and fun as heck. Can’t wait till launch
No stats, character levels or upgradable outfits(armor). So all I’m working for is to say “hey his pants are different than my pants” not so sure about this game.
You reference BATMAN with the ship coming out of the cave…. not goonies. For shame!
Ooh perfect dark cookies? I'm in for that!
I really hope you can completely custumize your ship/sails so no ship will look a like kinda like how they did the call of duty emblems for your sail.
Microtransactions!!! Haven't the gaming companies learned their lesson yet? I personally will never buy another game that promotes that filthy business practice.
So much better in 3rd person
Ahoy thar, 'ave sailed th' seas o' this stretcherin' world 'n i 'ave come face t' face wit' th' beats o' th' great blue 'n i tell ye thar be a lot t' see. I 'ave heard o' some legends o' almighty loot waitin' in th' depths o' th' Caspian sea 'n in th' bowels o' th' caves on th' isle o' whispers. Good luck sailor, cap'n El Savorinto
Fortnite at sea 😂
Number 1 thing you learned about sea of thieves is sailing the seas? You don't even talk about the fucking sea.
This should be called 10 things about sea of thieves
Only saw sharks in the beta there better be schools of fish crabs etc..
Sea of Thieves amazing but I wish they made a single player version too, with npc crews and stuff like that.
t wait, im gonna sweat it to get to get to lengendary
The only Xbox game I want, I’m so jealous 😞
I'm gonna need a ledgendary sloop
3 MORE FUCKING DAYS! I CANT WAIT!
☻/ This is Bob . Copy and paste him
/▌ all over the internet
/ so he can take over the world
but u need windows 10 cuz.. sellouts to microsoft
I really hope they include a feature for diving bells to conserve breath while exploring wrecks, as I know I've seen a few wrecks in footage of the BETA.
For players who prefer playing with small 1-2 player teams, they would get their own server. Seems kinda jerkish having a massive galleion vs a small one man ship duke it out. Especially since Rare seems to be focusing on balance where all players are on equal footing
"AHOY MATEES!" ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ
Sad Rare no longer makes high quality single player adventure games anymore. Looks like a gash grab game that relies on the multiplayer aspect to give the environment any meaning… anyone else NOT have 4 friends that are always available when you're wanting to play the same game at the same time and length of time? These games get boring quick in my opinion. MS bailed on backing single player games or something. Thank you Sony.
What music is playing in the background? Is it the games soundtrack?
If i pre order this from Windows 10 store will I have the black dog dlc?
1 day left
Only issues i have with this game is how well (or poorly) will my 10 year old pc handle this game? And where will i find 3 other close friends to play with? Really wanna play this game.
Wow as someone who hasn't been that excited about video games . Very hyped about this ..
From the creators of goldeneye,perfect dark,donkey kong 64, banjoe kazooie and many more ! Comes an adventure like no other .
I've been playing since the alpha and I must admit, I'm pretty excited. Can't wait to see what they have in store for us.
Is this the new Disney Infinity game?
"Dress up your fuckin' ear"
Anybody know how to type messages to your crew?

Chest of tempest, storms form around your ship
Chest of beacons, people can see where the chest is on the map
Chest of jaws, sharks will circle your ship constantly
