Sea Of Thieves Is IGN’s Most Anticipated Multiplayer Game Of 2017

While Sea of Thieves has yet to be officially confirmed for a 2017 release, it hasn’t stopped IGN from ranking it as their number one anticipated multiplayer game for the year. That’s puts it ahead of several other high profile games they listed such as Red Dead Redemption 2, Ghost Recon: Wildlands, and Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite. Here’s what they had to say about the game….

Sea of Thieves looks to carry the pillars of multiplayer emergence, exploration and progression into an era where the MMO has all but vanished. Working in tandem with friends to effectively crew a ship becomes even more exciting in the context of a beautiful open world replete with both PVE encounters and player controlled ships. One of Sea of Thieves’ most exciting ideas is tangible currency in the form of treasure chests that must be retrieved, stored and transported to cash in. This plays up the pirate fantasy in more ways than one, as the treasure can be intercepted by a rival crew at any point during the process. Whether grouping up with friends or setting sail with a crew of strangers, Sea of Thieves is sure to harbor many unique multiplayer experiences in the year to come.
