Rare works with Disney on a brand new expansion for Sea of Thieves that will cross the game with the Pirates of the Caribbean universe. Fans of the series will be excited by the prospect of adventure as the iconic Captain Jack Sparrow, who sneaks into the Ship to take on Captain Davies-Jones himself. The free update, which is under the title Pirates for Life, will be released in Sea of Thief on June 22.
Sea of Thieves is about to launch a huge new adventure and Rare has revealed a surprising crossover – the game will team up with Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean. Rarely has announced a brand new expansion for Sea of Thieves, which includes characters from the hit Disney franchise. In a collaboration between Rare, Xbox, and Disney, the game will bring Disney characters to play in a free update entitled A Pirates Life.
Sea of Thieves gets a little savvy with Jack Sparrow, as the Disney film series arrives with a brand new original story.
The Sea of Thieves will compete with pirates in the Caribbean Sea, and Disney’s Captain Jack Sparrow will appear among them. Sail through the waters, fight other ships and find hidden treasures on various remote islands. Complete your Fallout collection as a doom slayer and fight evil regimes.
A crossover event called Sea of Thieves and Pirates of the Caribbean was announced at the Xbox conference E3 2021. Given the pirate theme of the game, this makes perfect sense as a collaborative effort.
In addition to improved loading times on the Series X the game runs at 60fps at 4K on Xbox Series X and 1080p at 60FPS on the Xbox Series S, and a new seasonal progression system was added earlier this year to the game. While Sea of Thieves was at launch a bit dry, the multiplayer seafaring game rounded off its gameplay with constant updates.
Pirates of Life will be available for all Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, PC, Windows 10, and Steam players free of charge. The bad news for PS and Nintendo fans is that it will be an exclusive Xbox Game Pass and PC – game.
During Microsoft and Bethesda press conference, both companies showed the latest update to Sea of Thieves. Davies-Jones and his cursed crew both seem to be free in some way to update themselves.
The unveiling was a joint 90-minute presentation hosted by Microsoft and Bethesda on Sunday as part of the Virtual Electronic Entertainment Expo this year which featured a full 30 games that will be coming to the Xbox platform in the next few years. Last summer’s Summer Game Fest Online season brought together 16 of the industry’s biggest publishers, including Microsoft, Sony, Activision, Valve, Bethesda, and Blizzard, in a cavalcade of news, trailers, and game demos for four months. Between May and August of last year, Summer Games partnered with publishers to provide updates to game projects, announce new titles on social media platforms and provide playable demos to participants, a total of 75 to 100 game demos shared by Microsoft.
Xbox game pass is bringing a lot of games on the first-day release basis
It raises the question of whether Microsoft and its development partners have learned anything from the problems with Outrider earlier this year when a large influx of players on the first day of game pass caused the game servers to melt for most of the opening weekend. Interest in the game remained high to the point that Microsoft this week mentioned its popularity as a point in Game Pass favors, but it seems more like a cautionary tale to me.
