The creators of some of Nintendo's best-loved classics just released this insanely ambitious pirate adventure for Xbox One
When it comes to big games on the Xbox One - which is to say, games that aren't available on the PlayStation 4 - the list is pretty short.
This week's launch of "Sea of Thieves" is an outsized addition to that list.Advertisement
And with "Sea of Thieves," Microsoft has an amibitious new addition to its list of console exclusive games.It's an online-only game, meaning you can only play the game in an open world full of other pirates (actual human players). The game never holds your hand, instead depending on players to teach each other and themselves how to play. And there's no one narrative - the story of the game is what happens while you take on and complete quests.
In my brief few hours with it so far, I've found a lot of promise and charm in "Sea of Thieves." Here's why I think you should give it a shot.Get the latest Microsoft stock price here.
"Sea of Thieves" nails the concept of emergent narrative storytelling — the "story" is the tale of how you completed your quest, not the quest itself.
"Sea of Thieves" goes all-in on the sailing thing.Advertisement
"Sea of Thieves" doesn't hold your hand whatsoever, which is both great and not so great.
"Sea of Thieves" is absurdly pretty.Advertisement
"Sea of Thieves" is mysterious and large, which is fascinating.
I wouldn't suggest you run out and buy an Xbox One to play "Sea of Thieves" — not yet, anyway — but it's certainly worth your time if you're an Xbox One or Windows 10 PC owner.Advertisement
"Sea of Thieves" is available now on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC — it costs $60. Take a look at this video for a better idea of what you're getting into:
