Captain Jack Sparrow is joining your Sea of Thieves crew. That’s either very good or very bad, depending on your point of view–from what we’ve seen of the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean tie-in expansion, A Pirate’s Life, he seems like he’s pretty fun to have around. On the other hand, he likes to get into the rum and he’s a bit of a loose cannon.
Either way, Jack Sparrow represents a major shift in Sea of Thieves in its third year, and with A Pirate’s Life, Rare’s multiplayer live service game looks to be taking a big leap forward. As Rare showed in a presentation demonstrating what we can expect from the expansion, A Pirate’s Life adds a huge amount of content that goes beyond just Pirates of the Caribbean-themed items and stories. It’s adding a bunch of new characters, new enemies, and new places to explore.
