20 Sea of Thieves Gameplay Videos You Need to See Before Launch

Sea of Thieves Gameplay videos

Pirate games have always been finicky, at best, as we’ve certainly seen our fair share of big hits and big duds over the past 10 years. But if there’s one thing that’s clear right now, it’s that Microsoft’s big upcoming pirate adventure Sea of Thieves is going to be huge (and it WILL be one of the most talked about and streamed games of the year).

Why? It’s because virtually everyone who played the beta is talking about their Sea of Thieves gameplay experience, bragging to their friends about stealing someone else’s booty, having their ship sunken by now-rival pirates, winning sword fights, and more piratey stuff. There’s seriously a lot of fun to be had in this game, and I can’t stress enough that it shouldn’t be overlooked.

But if you didn’t get a chance to play in the open beta and have no idea what to expect, fear not; the list below contains 20 Sea of Thieves gameplay videos that should steer your ship in the right purchasing decision.

Below, we’ve selected some of the best videos that show-off exactly what Sea of Thieves is about, and you’ll find much more useful information here than you would get from any of those ridiculously staged E3 demos we’ve seen for Sea of Thieves so far.

So if you’re thinking about throwing on that black eye patch, dusting off that old pirate hat, and strapping on your peg leg, here are all of the best Sea of Thieves gameplay videos to help you make your final decision before the game’s release on March 20th on Xbox One and PC.
