Sea of Thieves starts a fan contest to play the game before anyone else

    
10
Well, all right, then.

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.

Karl_Hungus Armsbend I’d love to see the depth and fidelity of Star Citizen (including multi-crew ships) + the gameplay and setting of Assassins Creed Black Flag.

Karl_Hungus Armsbend I’d love a gritty pirate MMO, but having watched the Sea of Thieves trailer I have to say it doesn’t look half bad. The water looks great, the environments and ship models do too. Wouldnt much fancy a trip to England though.  I can only tolerate that 30+ hour flight once every five years or so.

They should make a dark and gritty pirate MMO. That would be much better than another childish cartoon pirate game. We’ve already seen how well those do. Not well at all.

arktourosx I do not think Micrtosoft will get into the EA game.  That is for scrubs only.

Did they ever stop to ask themselves if this was the game they should be making?

“MMO” is a type of venereal disease in the gaming world. Best to avoid that term at all cost.

whats the difference between “a shared-world pirate game” & a mmo Pirate Game?

I wanted to pirate in Archeage originally. Unfortunately, we all know how that game turned out. Hopefully this game will scratch that itch to plunder some booty.
