Xbox Enthusiast has played the game at multiple trade shows. Enthusiast Andrew Gonzalez played an early demo at E3 2016 and loved experiencing the game with a group of people. Fellow Enthusiast Steve Clist called Sea of Thieves his “most anticipated game announced for Xbox.”
Sea of Thieves is now my most anticipated game announced for Xbox, and I can’t wait to play more. It looks gorgeous, plays brilliantly, and has enough variety to keep my attention for many hours to come. Rare is back, and it can’t come soon enough. Microsoft has shown faith in the developer by letting them create whatever they wanted, and they’re going to be rewarded with a console exclusive which is unlike anything else around.
