E3 2017: Sea of Thieves launches a banana meme

How do you eat a banana?

Well, you’re wrong — at least according to Sea of Thieves. The seafaring game’s E3 trailer showed a brief gameplay segment where a character was shoving a banana into a mouth, unpeeled, stem first. This oddity caught the eye of Polygon, which made a video mocking it, and thus a meme was born.

Getting away from tropical fruit for a second, one interesting question was brought up during the expo: What if your own shipmates maroon you on an island and leave you there? According to the devs, a “friendly mermaid” will arrive to bring you back to your boat. Presumably she then falls in love with you and sings that she wants to be part of your world.

Sea of Thieves is currently in the throes of technical alpha, having announced that it will launch in early 2018.

If Polygon had bothered to read the faq they’d know that banana peeling won’t be in game till late Alpha or early Beta.
