Xbox really killed in terms of new exclusives, especially those that are co-op; it's one of the brightest spots of E3 so far! I, personally, love pirates. Whether it be pirate movies or pirate games, I just can't seem to get enough. I never really thought that I needed a co-op pirate adventure game until Rare gave me Sea of Thieves. The game is an open-world pirate game that is becoming an entirely new genre in itself. Check out this gameplay reveal:
Co-Op Pirate Ship Battles!
First of all, the graphics look absolutely fantastic. The unique style Rare brings to the table translates very well to the Xbox One. More importantly, we are getting co-op cannon battles! Can you imagine swarming around your ship with your crew-mates? Organizing one person to plug holes in the ship, one person to man the cannon, and another to pilot the ship will be extremely fun and surely intense. This is going to be a game changer for co-op and will instantly become one of the most fun games that the Xbox has to offer!
This Will Be The Next Great Co-Op Game!
Everybody loves playing with friends and Sea of Thieves will be the next great game in that genre. This is definitely not a game meant to be played alone and, with a group of friends, I can only image how fun this will be. Set the sails, get your parrots and peg legs, and get out there to find some treasure!
