Sea of Thieves is a very unusual production. The title has no plot, no introduction, so after quickly creating the hero and choosing one of the two boats, we find ourselves in a dingy inn and... Exactly. A small island, some heroes controlled by artificial intelligence, a modest pier, and our more or less large boat. The creators do not explain how to move, where to get the quest, where the map is. We have to discover the prepared systems and create adventures by ourselves. And there is no doubt that such a concept looks good when you have a little pirate-explorer in your heart and with a smile on your face, you begin to understand "what the author meant". 

The first moments for the land rats are painful in Sea of Thieves, but exploring this world is rewarding and the idea works. After a while, young adventurers will understand that there are three factions in the game for which we can perform tasks, we collect gold for completed missions and then spend it to beautify our hero or refine the ship. A small problem is a fact that the authors have completely abandoned the character experience system, so the hero does not gain levels, does not learn abilities, and even all the elements available in the title differ almost only in appearance. Why do all these trips in such a situation? Just for the adventure itself, because the British title offers a unique experience, but whether we feel it depends entirely on several factors.

The life of a pirate is not all rosy here, because although from the beginning we do not have to steal and kill to get our first ship, it is worth taking care of a team that will help us master the game and get the most important. The developers throughout the marketing campaign encouraged us to play together and it is definitely with friends that you should discover the "British Sea", at the same time I am aware that even alone sea wolf can find a lot of fun in Sea of Thieves. 

How to start a great pirate adventure? First, you have to remove the anchor, then stretch the mast and take the helm, and if you want to check the way, you have to jump into the captain's cabin, where there is an unfolded map with written islands. Before going out into the world, it is worth collecting contracts - you can always have three "missions" with you, which consist of one of three stratagems: kill a skeleton captain, deliver goods (such as chicken), search for treasure.

The Brits didn't make a game for land rats who have a hard time forming a team. Sea of Thieves is a title focused primarily on cooperation, as we can experience the best production elements in the team, with our buddies.

Sea of Thieves offers enjoyable gameplay. The game is one of the greatest experiences of the last few months, whether you like it or forget about its existence.
