Rare announced during the Xbox E3 showcase earlier this week that Captain Jack Sparrow, the worst pirate you’ve ever heard of, will arrive at Sea of Thieves in his next big update. Today we saw for the first time a bit of real gameplay in a new video that provokes the upcoming campaign in the history of Sea of Thieves: A Pirate & # 39; s Life.
The new adventure, which can be played alone or as a crew, begins with Captain Jack’s release from prison, which seems like a pretty natural place to start. From here, you'll get a look at the world's largest pirate treasure, which Jack has stolen, after which you'll join him in a new quest to protect the good people of the Sea of Thieves from invading dark forces. no more and no less than Davy Jones himself.
Davy seems to be the big problem in a pirate's life, but other new enemies will also have to be dealt with, such as mermaids, ghosts, and ocean trackers, and it looks like you might get a little face with one (the? ) Kraken, too. The full adventure will take place in five new Tall Tales and will be free for all players. Of course, new cosmetics, including a new set of ships and a bit of Captain Jack-style styling, will also be added to the update.
A closer look at Sea of Thieves: A Pirate & # 39; s Life will take place at 11 a.m. PT / 2 p.m. ET on June 20, at Twitch i YouTube. Executive producer Joe Neate said Sunday's showcase will be "a deep dive into all the details behind this Disney collaboration," including a look at how Rare recreated Jack Sparrow. and other Pirates of the Caribbean characters, and the new Pirate & # 39; s Life game.
