GSY Video PC Xbox One

All sails set to the islands of Sea of Thieves in today's series of HDR videos! As usual, we have recorded the PC version as we couldn't do it before and the sense of freedom the game conveys has a particular meaning these days. For the purpose of the following footage, we traveled solo this time but we remind you all that this title is truly meant to be experienced with a crew.

If you need some HDR content, here are two videos of Sea of Thieves captured in 4K on Xbox One X. Reminder: you need to watch the videos on a compatible screen by downloading them or on our Youtube channel.

At last, we have finally be able to play Sea of Thieves as it has been designed to, with other people willing to work with us. Captain DJODJO and his chief mate davton tried their best to make good pirates of VonGotz and I, teaching us how to sink abandoned ships but not how to find its cowardly captain who was hiding on a nearby island. Still, we killed a bunch of skeletons, found several treasure chests and even 2 pretty chicks. We have managed to sum up our 120 minute adventure in 5 gameplay videos, so hopefully you'll take the time to watch them before adding your comment.

We must confess, we have really failed to provide a solid coverage of the Sea of Thieves beta ever since it started to allow video footage, so we took the opportunity of the final beta build to try the game a bit more than we had in the past. Sadly, we were quite unlucky yesterday evening, as we couldn't even get a free treasure map, the old man selling them taking ages to count our coins (we had none and the map was free, so the math was hard...), which is why we decided to set sail without any real objective to motivate our adventure. You'll also notice that we had no crew, which clearly isn't the best way to experience Rare's new title. Nothing much happened in the course of our short journey, we didn't meet anyone (but we don't need anyone when it comes to sinking our own boat), we found nothing of interest in the different islands we explored, but we saw very nice landscapes and beautiful waters. This more or less proves that the success of the game will only rely on what players will be lucky enough to experience, together or on their own. We just don't know yet if there is enough content to make it interesting in the long run. What do you guys think?
Update: Fifth video added.

Sea of Thieves is of course one of the major games at Microsoft's booth for this Gamescom, both on Xbox and PC. We got to try the game on PC, and even captured this nice 4K footage.

More direct feed footage with Sea of Thieves in its PC version. This time Miguel had to use Microsoft's equipment, hence the 30 fps instead of 60.

Let's take a change of scene with these new screenshots of Sea of Thieves. The new production from Rare will release in Q1 2017.

Quite a few people asked us for more footage of Sea of Thieves, so Miguel went back to Microsoft and got us 2 more 60 fps videos from the PC version.

Microsoft finally did show Sea of Thieves during their press conference. Here it is in 720p but good quality.
