I can't wait to form an armada in Sea of Thieves

Sea of Thieves now lets you create friends-only crews

Sea of Thieves' new update changes a little and fixes a lot

Sea of Thieves update addresses stalemates and griefing

Rare drops its planned 'death cost' for Sea of Thieves

Rare planned to introduce a "small gold fee" for dying in Sea of Thieves, a change that didn't sit well with many players. The idea was that you'd be dinged for dying out in the world to skeletons or sharks, not against other players, and t...

Review: Sea of Thieves

Sea of Thieves is proving to be a divisive game. During my review-in-progress, I said that I fell in the middle of the pack: somewhere between the folks who find Rare's shared-world pirate adventure dreadfully boring and those who feel it's...

Review in Progress: Sea of Thieves

Sea of Thieves has skull forts and they sound intense

Your PC doesn't need to be a man-of-war to run Sea of Thieves

All sorts of schooner-steerers are welcome on the tranquil-but-usually-also-hostile waters of Sea of Thieves. Xbox One owners already know that their standardized ships will be perfectly adequate for living that pirate life. But, PC players...

Well, guess I'm horny for a hard drive

First a motherboard and now an external hard drive. Against all odds, 2018 is shaping up to be the year that I'm extremely into the aesthetic of certain hardware. Accompanying the recent reveal of the Sea of Thieves Xbox One controller...

We had a blast goofing off in Sea of Thieves

The number-one thing to know about Sea of Thieves? You can load yourself into a cannon and have your buddy fire you over islands and, presumably, onto other player-controlled ships if you're aimed well. The number-two thing to know? You can...

That's one way to dodge a cannonball

Sea of Thieves beta extended as players face technical issues

For some players, it's been a real challenge getting the Sea of Thieves beta to cooperate. There have been issues with the game mistakenly saying it's "too early" to play and locking folks out, and I've had (probably Windows 10-related) pro...

Rare talks progression and quests in Sea of Thieves

I'm on board with Sea of Thieves. I have been for some time now. But there's still one question hampering my excitement for Rare's multiplayer pirate adventure: how long will it last? Long-term player progression and motivation has been a c...

This special Sea of Thieves Xbox controller is the best loot

Sea of Thieves can be anything!

I don't remember the last time I saw Sea of Thieves, but it doesn't really thrill me. I'm not big on pirates and the whole open world thing is a little old hat. That isn't to say this doesn't look neat, but I don't know how much I can belie...

Take a peek at skeleton combat in Sea of Thieves

I'm torn on this latest Sea of Thieves video. On the one hand, skeletons. Ask any scientist, and they'll confirm what you already know to be true -- that skeletons rule, particularly when they're sentient enough to aim a gun at treasure-na...
