Sea of Thieves
This is another Xbox exclusive and, at first, was a deep disappointment for fans looking forward to Rare’s open sea sandbox. It just seems that, in all this expansive world, there wasn’t much to do. That is no longer true, as a series of free downloads has greatly enhanced the game in a way reminiscent to No Man’s Sky.
The core of the game is teamwork. Players create their characters, hop aboard ships with one another, take up different roles on the ship, and keep an open line of communication to navigate that ship optimally. This is important, because the seas are dangerous, treasures are hotly contested, and other players would delight in nothing more than sinking your craft. The game jumps quickly between serene and chaotic, as does the accompanying conversation.
