With the Closed Beta for Rare's Sea of Thieves wrapped up, the studio has supplied some pretty impressive numbers. Like the 332.052 total players that took to the high seas, where over 2 million collective hours were spent ogling the truly jaw-dropping water effects. Plus, news that during the beta Sea of Thieves became the most watched game across both Twitch and Mixer.
Impressive, and if you had the chance to check it out you'll no doubt understand why. Sea of Thieves is one of the most refreshing game experiences in years, at times offering a relaxing co-op cruise through the ocean in search of treasure with bursts of intense ship-to-ship combat. And then drinking grog to mourn the loss of several treasure chests.
It's a lot of fun.
Our only issue, is one of content. As it stands Sea of Thieves is excellent but a little lacking. Polished, but you get the sense that it needs more. Thankfully we can probably expect to find all of the below in the final release in March.
With hopefully a lot more to follow.
