During this time of social distancing finding games to chill with goes a long way to helping pass the time and Sea of Thieves has been one of those games that I can jump into with a few friends and have plenty of laughs while not needing to worry about K/D ratios or leaderboards. It’s also one the nicest looking games out there with an art style that makes me think of how I imagined a modern take on the Monkey Island series would be like coupled with those crazily realistic water effects.
There are times when staring out from your ship or admiring a sunrise/sunset can be quite inspiring. It rocks if you have an HDR capable screen but is also VERY distracting – there’s been plenty of times I’ve run a ship aground because I spent too much time watching the sky and not the island in front of me. But when you spend as much time on the water as you do in this game it really helps to be able to appreciate the sights and sounds around you and it works for me.
Anyhow, here’s a few pictures during some of my recent adventures in Sea of Thieves. It barely scratches the surface of what you can see in the game but I think I’ll be posting more in the future while I keep working my way up to becoming a Pirate Legend. 🙂
Sea of Thieves is out now on PC and Xbox One.
