Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! Sea of Thieves’ launch trailer has unleashed the Kraken!

A mere five days remain before Sea of Thieves will set sail, giving gamers a chance to experience something new and exciting. That is, the life of a pirate, as told by Rare.

In advance of its release, Microsoft has unleashed the game’s launch trailer, which, despite being short, manages to showcase a good amount of colourful gameplay. It ends in visceral fashion, too, with the emergence of the Kraken — the iconic sea monster whose appearance is preceded by the darkening of nearby skies.

Plan to set sail upon the Sea of Thieves next Tuesday, March 20th. They’ll open up on that day, on both PC and Xbox One.
