Sea of Thieves’ death penalty is unique — and social
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, and since there’s nothing else to do than talk, hopefully some spirited conversations will emerge between friends and enemies.
Once a player’s time is up on the ferry, she will appear back on her own ship. Or in the case of her ship being sunk, a friendly mermaid will help reunite sailors and their vessels. Check it out after the break!
