Sea Of Thieves [official site] got a gameplay video as part of E3 so we can see a bit more of the shared piratical world and get an idea for how the collaborative boating and cannonballing (and drinking) might work. I actually found it really engaging.
I know that that’s what a gameplay video is generally aiming for but so many miss the mark – with this one I can imagine catastrophic sea voyages as we accidentally abandon crew members, sail into rocks while someone says “you’ve got plenty of room” and capsize at the hands of vaguely competent foes. The only thing missing in the footage was sea shanties. I refuse to believe people wouldn’t sing sea shanties.
