    Flying ships? Why would you bring that up?

    I am not one for pre-ordering, however I am hugely tempted this time around as I've enjoyed the beta a lot in just a few days.

    Is Cdkeys the cheapest place currently? I don't have an Xbox.. I suppose if I did pre-order I'd want the bonus content also.

    I hope microtransactions are well implemented and don't bring a sea of negativity with them.
    Rare needs to trade carefully with that.

    I did it this last night for the first time. It has promise but I think it's a little empty, or perhaps we didn't play it properly. Some got a quest but then left so we had nothing to do but sail around and try to kill people, which we failed at!

    Up for joining people though. I'm on PC but the cross play seems to work excellently

    It currently only has one quest path activated, and no tutorial, so not surprising! :D

    As mentioned above, I played it the once this time and completed 2 quests. Logged back in the next day and even over a few reboots I couldn't activate anymore voyages on the desk in the hold (it hung after pressing x and then times out) but the game happily took my coins. I've not tried again but also no one else here seems to have had the problem.

    Every time I've had people here and gone to join us up as a party on this beta I've had a error joining, 2 Xbox and a PC in coop and just can't get in the game.

    Tbf I've had many hours in the alpha and really enjoyed seeing the new bits attached to the game during it but little disappointed it doesn't work with this coop set up now that play anywhere stuff is active.

    At least I don't have to buy the game day one and can try it on game pass first to make sure it's all sorted.

    Tried again last night and my errors from before seem to have sorted itself out. Can't bring myself to play much of it though. I unlocked the next tier but it seems to have just unlocked the option to buy a gold shovel in the end, no new quests above the main 3. I really hope in the final game there's enough to maintain things I know this is a silver of the game but already the gameplay is feeling rote and the rewards are slim. Difficult to have too much of those sumptuous hdr views though, it really does look breathtaking much of the time.

    The idea is that upgrading level with a faction will unlock longer, more involved quests - those three quests would (should) have been different to the ones available before.

    Craig Duncan:

    We have game press in all week @RareLtd for @SeaOfThieves - @JezCorden was so keen to visit he turned up a day early.


    Apparently press have been playing the full game, and there'll be coverage going up in two weeks (Feb 13th).

    Jez Corden has since posted:

    Any concerns I had about Sea of Thieves are gone. This will be 2018's PUBG.

    Hah. Don't need no mega hypes, it will only disappoint. All I know is I love the feel and tone, and sailing the seas.

    Jez Corden is quite often a bit of an Xbox hypeman, to be fair. So dial back the "2018's PUBG!" sentiment a bit, and just take from the statement the fact that he's apparently seen the full game and come away very impressed.

    MS will need to regularly deliver content to keep this feeling fresh.

    I wonder what their metric of success will be? With it going straight to Game Pass I'd imagine sales'll be significantly impacted. I guess they'll be looking heavily at user number and player retention more than anything else, and how much it drives Game Pass sales/subs.

    Yep, putting it straight into GP suggests they aren't that fussed with unit sales for this game. In a sense, it makes sense to make the barrier to entry reasonably low for a game like this.

    They're going to be banking on people taking an Ł8 punt and then staying subbed to continue playing.

    It's not just this game or a "game like this" though, it's every 1st party game from now.

    Yeah, which is why I said it was a bit mental when they announced that.

    I'm still really unsure on whether to pick this up or not, I missed the recent beta, but played one of the previous closed ones. It seemed good, but really felt like you needed to have a close-knit group of regulars to really take advantage of it, or you'll just be left feeling frustrated.

    I guess with a lot of the more recent titles, the fun comes from building your own stories and experiences.

    I still have the 14 day game pass trial, so I may well wait until launch to use that and test this out.

    @blimeyguvnor87 From your posting style i imagine you are a new reg?

    Just an FYI unless you show yourself to be a massive bellend, you have joined a gaming forum, where people play games. You will easily find others to play the game with. Just don't turn out to be a twat.

    @Graxlar_v3 I've been posting here for a few years, I even used to work at Eurogamer, so not a new reg (actually registered 9 years ago, apparently).

    Whilst I agree that to begin with it'll probably be fairly easy to find people to play with once the novelty wears off and with different gaming schedules I can see it dropping off fairly quickly - potentially.

    I'm also concerned about that. It's hard to find EG people playing even PUBG at the moment. The discord us typically empty and that's for the biggest game in the world now. It used to be very busy but then the next game comes along.

    My friends are all split between pc/xbox/ps4 right now so just glad to have another game to cross platform play with.

    @blimeyguvnor87 I played the beta solo. Once I got into it, it was an ok experience, but not one that I would purchase the full game off the back of. It definitely needs more than one player. The most fun I had with it was when Mrs Hermit took an interest in what I was doing and laughing about how crap I was running away from every other ship. She seemed to think that I could take on a 4 man galleon from my tiny 1 man dinghy.

    I'll sign up for GP when it launches and have another look with some more players.
