Rare has made a huge splash with its hacker epic Sea of Thieves, after all the title is still a tease for years after its original release in 2018 and is being peppered with new content. Anyone holding on to the franchise now will be able to enjoy another app in the current year 2023.
Do you want to experience a new pirate adventure within the rare Sea of Thieves series? After that, you’ll still have reason to feel happy in 2023, because supplies are on the way — but not in the form of a new video game or even a sequel. Instead, the material is now being played as a board game.
In collaboration with Steamforged Games, a desktop application called “Sea of Thieves: Voyage of Legends” is currently being developed, which should be available in the summer of 2023. The developer is by no means known in this field, after all, Steamforged Games is also responsible for the upcoming backgammon implementation of Elden Ring.
The new implementation of Sea of Thieves should be able to be played by 2 to 4 players competitively; This is not a cooperative board game. Each player gets ships which he can upgrade from a sailing ship to a full sailing ship. Moreover, it is necessary to hire a crew, sell goods in the mall, and search for treasures.
Other video game features also find their way into the board game app, such as abandoned forts or epic sea monsters like the Kraken or Megalodon.
Backgammon should be priced around 60 euros; The box then contains over 150 playing cards, 10 standard dice, and 24 display pieces.
