Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Sea of Thieves (XBO, Win 10) launches March 20

 

Sea of Thieves will launch for Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs on March 20, 2018, Microsoft and Rare announced.
----

Wonder if it will stay on Windows 10 or will jump to Steam like QB and KI.

Earlier than expected. I am curious to see how this will actually do. It is online only multiplayer forcing people to A) fight only other people and B) group up or get beaten down.

Will the game have something that groups people up, or will randoms actually have to find others to trust and group up with?



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Hmm, considering how barebones the game was during the alpha, I'm surprised it's releasing in March.Guess it's gonna be one of those games that gets most of it's content after launch like Destiny

Also curious about cross play. I don't actually know much about the combat. So I don't know if Keyboard/mouse will get an advantage.

But I am mostly curious about the grouping. I can't see it being random. What keeps people from betraying you? What happens when you log off. Do you get a "part" of the treasure? Who keeps the ship?

Is it voltron? Each player gets a "part" and you combine them to make a bigger, and bigger ship?

The alpha was just a small part of the game. They needed to test basic things before release.



Is this MS's attempt to combat the release of GOW? Personally, I'd release it in a month with little competition so it gets most of the press. It would also allow them to add more content.

I hope not. They better use Crackdown 3 or something for that. Sea Of Thieves is an ambitious, but unproven IP. GOW has too much anticipation going for it. Not to mention the brand power it has.

I wish I could say I'm excited for this, but it just doesn't look all that great to me. I'll keep an eye out for it though.

No. They are two different types of games on different platforms. It's just a release date.
