Sea of Thieves is shaping up to be a pretty interesting game, sailing ships, docking at uncharted islands in search for long-lost pirate treasure, boarding a rival pirate’s ship and if you want to get more wacky, launching your friends out of a cannon.
In the most recent trailer that came out a few days ago, it looks like The Kraken will be joining the game as one of the NPCs that you can tackle in search of epic loot. The Microsoft exclusive game has not only shown a new enemy you have to tackle, but it also shows play progression which revolves around the reputation that you can earn from NPC fractions. Each fraction will alter your gameplay by offering you different types of quest to take on and further progress your character. Worry not, because if your friends were to side with another fraction, you are still allowed to play with them as the game developers have promised that “there are no barriers in place preventing players playing together.”
The developers have also given a glimps of the end game, once you reach the higher levels of the game, you will be offered a legendary status where you will own your own hideout, ship crew and outfit. From there, the game will unlock legenadry quest for you where you can take on the game’s most challanging senarios and further prove your legendary status to the game world.
Sea of Thieves will release on March 20 for Windows and Xbox.
