As more and more information trickles out about the upcoming pirate sage Sea of Thieves, gamers have been wondering about the end game. Will all of our plundering and sea battles mean anything in the grand scheme of things? Well, we have good news for you – gamers should be very happy about today’s information about progression in Sea of Thieves.
First of all, if you missed this morning’s stream, make sure to check it out here. It is worth your time –
If you don’t have time, here is a quick breakdown (more detail can be found here) –
- Outposts will have a variety of companies, which feature different quests. For example, the Gold Company will send you to find chests, and a cut will be given to you upon completion. You can also find trade items and cursed pirate skulls.
- You can progress with each company and unlock new rewards and quests as your fame becomes greater and greater.
- Teaming up with other pirates will be easy, and you won’t have to worry about having similar ranks. Anyone can bring a quest to the crew, and you will vote on which quest to undertake.
- Sea of Thieves will feature a ton of customization, but your tools will not be upgrades. This means you won’t have to worry about crews paying for better weapons. It looks like it will be fair and even, and strategy will be the one tool that will keep you afloat on the seven seas.
- While you do get rewards for working as a crew, you are more than welcome to sail by yourself in a smaller ship.
So what does this mean? In my opinion, this is fantastic news and fits the theme perfectly. For Sea of Thieves to work, it needs to be the ultimate team game without any restrictions. We have seen countless games where levels and gear prevent you from joining your friends until you reach the same level. Sea of Thieves looks like it will be the ultimate drop-in/out multiplayer experience. You can get together anytime and play, no matter what quests you have. Also, I love that the tools will remain the same. I was really worried about a pay option that would leave the massive world unbalanced by having crews with more powerful weapons. Like I mentioned above, strategy and teamwork will be the key to surviving. Plus, the team can always drop updates on a regular basis with new quests, companies, and customizable options, keeping the gameplay fresh. I am beyond thrilled with the direction that Sea of Thieves is heading.
