If you’ve managed to forget what happened at E3 last year, recall that Rare announced that it was making a shared-world pirate game titled Sea of Thieves. Those of you with eyepatches and well-trained parrots are likely already nodding and muttering “aye” in recollection. So how would you like a chance to play the game before anyone else along with a trip to England?
All right, the second part of that sentence is going to be significantly less appealing to anyone who already is in England, but play along.
The contest asks for you, in short, to demonstrate how excited you are to play the game with a video or photos, with bonus points awarded for sets, dialogue, presentation, and costume. (For these purposes you can classify your eyepatch-and-parrot existence as a costume.) There’s a full teaser for the contest just below if you can’t wait for the chance to make every day all about talking and acting like a pirate.
