E3 2021: Sea of Thieves kicks off season three with Pirates of the Caribbean collab A Pirate’s Life

I can’t be the only person who’s been watching Sea of Thieves’ lack of content lately and wondered what the heck Rare is doing over there. It turns out it’s been working on a new story campaign called A Pirate’s Life that is essentially a collab between the game and Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean.

“Free to all players as part of our Season Three update arriving on June 22nd, this unforgettable adventure takes place over five Tall Tales charting a new threat to the pirate way of life from beyond the horizon. After rescuing Captain Jack Sparrow from an unfortunate predicament, you’ll set sail alongside him to uncover secrets, encounter characters old and new, and clash with surprising enemies as you explore the Sea of Thieves – and visit some new locations that’ll be familiar to fans of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise and the theme park attraction. This is a truly epic quest to protect the Sea of Thieves from the dark ambitions of Jack’s nemesis Davy Jones, and it’s the biggest and boldest update to Sea of Thieves since 2019’s Anniversary Update. […] Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life is the headline feature of Season Three, which also shakes up the Sea of Thieves as new enemy types featured in the Tall Tales spill out across the world. Skeletons and sharks are no longer your main concern as swarming Sirens, darting Phantoms and brutish Ocean Crawlers surge across the seas.”

I hope this is the first step towards a full fledged PVE mode.

Rare literally, completely and entirely, wholly and unequivocally, absolutely and any other synonym for the word;

HAD NO OTHER PERFECT OPPORTUNITY TO ADD A PVE MODE FOR THIS GAME.

The opportunity for it was staring them right in the face, yet they still chose to lock us into this PVP only game where trolls will no doubt be camping any and all known areas during this storyline, just to disrupt anyone else’s progress as they have before in the past. It breaks my heart… in a jar of dirt.

Is it still a PvP-only game ? Yes ? Well then I guess its a No-No for me… such a shame…

Disney’s Pirates Online a few years ago was actually a lot of fun. F2P if you ran it at like 720P in a window, or for a sub you could have fullscreen. Decent-looking avatars, fencing and flintlock firearms, and most importantly, everybody could pile onto the same ship and go off and adventure together in real time, even manning cannons while the captain sailed the vessel. You could enjoy ship combats, sail to islands and land there for adventures ashore, it truly got everything “right”. A crying shame that games like POTBS and STO never understood that crewing together, manning your station and playing your role, realtime travel on the same ship to destinations, is really the best part of those games.

In both games, the ship gameplay is the best part regardless. It would be nice to see more crew-focused games, though.

Eh I think the land gameplay is fun too. Pirate games that are pure ship-oriented get boring to me. Sea of Thieves’ riddles and treasure hunts are great fun imo.

Reader

I meant Burning Sea and STO. I agree that having land gameplay is good, theirs was just bad.

Oh gotcha, yeah. PotCO and SoT were like the only two that seemed to get a good grasp of what a pirate game should be about. It’s more than just the sea battles and sailing around. AC4: Black Flag also nailed it prior to SoT as a singleplayer experience.

That one caught me by surprise and it looked really cool even for someone who isn’t really a fan of Sea of Thieves.
