Sea of Thieves PS5 – 16 Things YOU NEED TO KNOW Before You Buy

Rare’s successful live-service pirate title Sea of Thieves is out on April 30th for PlayStation 5 after months of rumors, part of Microsoft’s strategy of multi-platform games.

Launching with Season 12 on other platforms, it will have a closed beta before launch and early access for the full version. However, for those who haven’t played the title, it’s impressive to look at its gameplay loop and how much has changed since March 2018. Where there were only Trading Companies and the odd Kraken to fight, there are now narrative-focused quests, a stronger end-game and Safer Seas, private servers for those who prefer to opt out of PvE.

Of course, that’s not counting the sheer range of cosmetics, High Seas shenanigans and more. Here are 15 things that new players on PS5 should know about Sea of Thieves before diving in.

  1. Will admit some fun can be had here but this game is limited, boring and ultimately a live service. Its a shadow of what it could be and not for me. Xbox's trash hand me downs, no thanks. Ill pass.

    I didn't download it for free on game pass so what makes them think I'll buy it in PlayStation.

    The best part is that the game is already doing well on PlayStation itโ€™s the most preordered game one the PlayStation store right now

    I played the game on gamepass. I have both consoles so no favourites for me. It is OK for a while. Anytime I tried to start naval battle and killed a crew and did pirate stuff by taking their loot, people would cry or be aggressive. The spirit of being a pirate is crushed when most just flee as well and won't engage in battle. Sometimes they just sail off the map rather than have a battle and lose their loot. It doesn't take long to realise the loot is relatively worthless and I reckon the only reason this is on Playstation is to prop up the falling player base, to keep gamepass engagement high, as there isn't many games of note on Xbox in terms of first party exclusives these days. I wonder if there will be visual parity or gimped by microsoft to be lesser than the Series X version?

    Whats all the hate for here? Its a fun game… If you don't like it, don't get it.

    I still throw this on once and a while and solo treasure hunt. It's a good game to set sail and put a podcast on with

    3:08 there absolutely are restrictions. You can only be up yo 2 players are on a sloop, 3 on a brigantine and 4 on a galleon. You cannot set sail with 3 friends on a sloop.
