Sea of Thieves A Pirate’s Life gameplay is now available to watch, as part of an extended showcase shown off by developer Rare and Microsoft.
The new trailer, below, showcases the free expansion, coming on 22 June.
A Pirate’s Life will take place across five tales alongside additional side-quests that are all story-based, Rare disclosed.
The developer said:
Rare’s Joe Neate, said:Players will go on a quest to free Jack Sparrow from his prison and witness the power of the world’s greatest Pirate Treasure, which Jack just so happens to have stolen. Jack is being pursued by his old enemy, the notorious Davy Jones, and their arrival on the Sea of Thieves will ultimately spell disaster if Jones and his forces aren’t stopped.
Rare’s Mike Chapman, added:Sea of Thieves aims to immerse players in a fantastical depiction of the pirate life, filled with colourful characters and vibrant locations to explore. The sense of fun, wonder and the imaginative spirit that we hold real affection for in the world of Pirates of the Caribbean always felt like it could be complementary to the world of Sea of Thieves, and we’ve striven alongside the teams at Disney to celebrate this.
The heart of our story explores what it truly means to be a pirate on the Sea of Thieves, and this has allowed us not only to tap into the deeper meaning of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies and the original attraction, but also allow players to go on adventures with Jack Sparrow, learning more about how he sees the pirate life and his place on the Sea of Thieves. This story moves the Sea of Thieves world forwards in unexpected ways, and it’s been a joy to bring these two worlds together, treating both in a way that feels authentic and delightful to experience.
Sea of Thieves is available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Windows PC and Xbox Cloud Gaming. A Pirate’s Life is coming on 22 June.
