I may have been a little quick to judge Sea of Thieves. When I saw it at E3, it just looked like a boring ship sailing simulator where you're told you are a pirate. Now, after seeing this demo video courtesy of Giuseppe Gaming I feel like I was a bit harsh on that assessment. Just looking at the games features in a demo setting show me there's a bit more to this game than I initially gave it credit for.
I'm still not completely sold, but we will see how it turns out.
