Going into the Xbox Bethesda Showcase we expected to see Halo Infinite, Starfield, and a bunch of other stellar titles. What we didn’t expect is a partnership with Disney for Sea of Thieves, Captain Jack Sparrow will be joining the seas starting June 22nd as part of a free expansion for the game.
“We’ve worked closely with the Walt Disney Games team throughout this whole process, crafting an original story which brings out the best elements of both Sea of Thieves and their beloved Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. To see iconic characters like Jack Sparrow and his crew represented in Sea of Thieves‘ unique art style, interacting with our own pirate universe – it’s been such an amazing experience to bring this whole thing to life and we can’t wait for you to dive in.”
This collaboration comes together in the Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life which is the headline feature of Season Three. Which also shakes up the Sea of Thieves as new enemy types featured in the Tall Tales spill out across the world. Skeletons and sharks are no longer your main concern as swarming Sirens, darting Phantoms and brutish Ocean Crawlers surge across the seas.
