Sea of Thieves is a game where you can become a pirate and an explorer. There is only one condition – you must not suffer from seasickness! The protagonist must fearlessly swim in the seas and oceans, discover new lands, look for treasures hidden in the sea caves, and fight sea battles with other pirates encountered on his or her way.
The game was created by the famous British Rare studio, known to every game maniac, primarily from such titles as Donkey Kong series, Viva Pinata and Banjo-Kazooie.

During the game, the players assume the roles of sea pirates. At the beginning of the game, you will find yourself in a tavern above the marina. From there, you can direct your steps in any direction, because the creators do not intend to limit you in any way. It is an open world in which the player immediately has access to all available locations and must create his or her own story. You will not see anywhere big exclamation points that would indicate the main quest you have to follow. Still, there are many tasks and quests that you can complete. Thanks to this, you can focus on those that interest you most and compete with other players in completing them the best way you can.
The action is based mainly on traveling and the fight against pirate ships encountered on the way. Everything in this game should be however taken with a pinch of salt. The land can be traveled on foot and by sea. After leaving the tavern, you will see a giant ship that you can take as your own.
Swimming with Your Comrades
You don’t have to sail the seas as a lone wolf. In fact, it’s much better when you invite your companions for a journey and this way you make your crew complete. In fact, swimming in a company is the best way to go as it is the multiplayer mode where Sea of Thieves begins to shine. The players in a group must work closely together on many levels. Controlling the ship requires dividing the tasks between the individuals. Someone must be responsible for the rudder, someone else for lowering and pulling the anchor or for hoisting the sails. Often when you encounter problems on your way, the division of roles changes. If you have to fight a different pirate crew, you have additional duties to perform. It is necessary to take care of the ship cannons – you should charge the cannon with cannon balls, aim at the target and fire. You cannot either forget about any repairs of the ship, otherwise, it may take on water and sink.
Of course, the life of a pirate consists not only of chores. There are also pleasures. In your spare time, you can play various pirate songs on the instruments of your choice or simply drink grog.
There are also smaller ships available in Sea of Thieves, allowing one for a one or two-player crew, but this can still be a challenge.
