Kind of shocked there wasn't a thread yet about this game, only one about the controller.

Anyways, I just picked up the xbox gamepass and I am looking for some crewmates to play this game with. Feel free to add me if anyone else will be checking this game out and are in need of a fellow pirate to complete their crew.

When does this come out? I love the allure of a pirate game but it sucks that it pretty much has to have other players. Not that I don't like coop but I have an erratic schedule so its hard to coordinate. I'll probably get it if you'd like to add me, my tag is heisenbeard

Came out today if you think it might not be for you can play via the Xbox Game Pass. I was able to purchase a month of the game pass for $1.50 on Ebay and it gave me another month for free. I played for a few hours this morning and it wasnt my cup of tea. I might give it another try when I get my next day off from work.

I am sure a lot of people decided to sign up for the 14 day game pass trial to test this game out.

Well this game came with the One X I just ordered... I never planned on getting it, and I am still debating selling the code, but I want to wait for reviews before making that decision.

Played an hour or two today solo. It's an absolute blast. Playing on the X, I have to say, sea of thieves has the best water effects in any game ever. It's stunning.

Gameplay wise they literally tell you nothing. You get to figure it all out on your own and it's a ton of fun. (Unless you start with the bug that doesn't let you equip anything. If that happens, kill your character. When you respawn you'll be fine.)

I can see it being very addicting to sail with friends. But that's the thing. With friends. I enjoyed my time solo, yes. But I couldn't imagine putting in the time the game requires to master most of its content by myself. Yes, you can do it all solo. But why would you want to?

Agreed on the water effects. In 4k and HDR this game looks amazing. I finally got in last night with my brother and had the weapon bug (that eventually fixed itself). Our boat was also not on the starting island so we had to use a merman to warp to it. Finally after getting three voyages the game wouldn't let us vote on them in the cabin so we couldn't do anything. I also couldn't figure out where to get my founders bonuses from being in the alpha from the start.

Instead we spend an hour drinking in the boat, watching the sunsets and finally scuttling the ship.

Sound like a hoot.

Its not because I'd want to, its because I'd have to. I'm 31, I work a lot and my friends are all adults with different schedules. Thus why forced online games are tough if I can't play with randoms.

I never said you couldn't play with randoms.

Shame this game doesn't have a 3rd person perspective, otherwise I may have picked it up. But that controller...

I'm glad I tried this out on Game Pass first. Not a big multiplayer fan and I like games with narratives, and SoT has zero story.

It's kinda like if Fallout 4 was nothing but the radiant quests the factions give you over and over. And trying to play solo is for the birds. I would get on my ship, lock in a quest, set a course and then sink in the middle of the ocean because I hit a rock I couldn't see while I was piloting the damn thing.

So, it looks pretty in 4K but the gameplay is beset by glitches and bugs. Thanks, my boy and I both agreed it's a game not worth getting. As we "only" have 2K we'd have been left with a game that doesn't look as pretty and would still be frustrating to play.

There's supposed to be an X patch incoming to fix performance. I've been seeing a lot of stuttering I didn't experience in the alpha or beta.

One issue they need to fix and is a big topic on reddit is scuttling your ship. It's only real purpose is if you get landlocked but people are manipulating the respawn to grief people. One guy was in a sloop sailing much better and faster than a galleon. He was well on his way to an outpost to at least get a couple treasures off his ship. When the galleon crew knew they'd never catch up they scuttled their ship and respawned right at the outpost. They went back and forth for an hour doing this. Every time the galleon crew gets a repaired ship and full inventory of cannon balls and bullets. A simple fix would be to only make scuttling possible when your ship is stuck.

Another thing you can do is if somebody steals your ship you can remote scuttle your own ship. You don't even need to be on it. All members just have to vote from a menu. This can be easily abused as well as it makes stealing others boats pointless.

There needs to be a reason to take on other ships (a faction group perhaps) and currently there is not. Afaik you cannot turn in someone else's bounty so the only reason to attack anybody is to just troll them.

No tutorial for this game is seriously an issue. No clue what to do, wondered around for a bit. Lost interest. Glad I tried it via the Xbox Live pass....

I agree, there is NO direction in this game, it needs at least a walk through treasure hunt or something to explain how things work just a little bit

I want to use a sloop with a 3 or 4 man group. I hate how large and slow the galleons are.

This is some of the most fun I've had in an online multiplayer game in a long time. Doing a raid with 3 randoms...having to fight off the skeletons and watch for incoming galleons, working with your crew to defend. It is an absolute blast.

That being said, without some varying content, I just don't see this lasting. It is definitely not worth 60 dollars in it's current state. The base for something great is there, it just needs some more content.

Love to see varying gear to buy. Hidden treasures with rare gear. Npc legendary pirates to fight. More encounters like the kraken...Moby dick?...sirens?...Hydra?

For now I'm all in! Add me if you're looking for a crew mate. It is in sig.

According to Eurogamer two big fixes are coming soon. The ability to make your parties private to cut down on brig griefing randoms and running galleons with smaller groups or sloops with larger groups. The larger sloop crew size is what I wanted the most.
