Sea of Thieves might see a battle royale mode sooner or later sooner or later. The multiplayer setting of Rare’s swashbuckling pirate journey implies that a battle royale might be made to suit the game, however the developer says that it will need to make its tackle the mode “unique” to Sea of Thieves.
The game’s design director, Mike Champman, says that whereas the builders “see the battle royale thing,” they’re eager to strategy the style, which has discovered main success over the previous yr, “differently.”
It’s honest to say that not one of the titles on our record of the best battle royale games happen on or round monumental galleons.
In an interview with Gameinformer, Chapman says that he thinks that “there will be opportunities to do that kind of thing differently. It’s interesting where you can take PvP in the game, but we’d want to put a unique Sea of Thieves spin on it and do something completely surprising.” In the identical interview, studio head Craig Duncan says “it’s not about taking something that works super well in another game, and going, ‘Hey, let’s start everyone in a Sea of Thieves map from different points and have you all come together.’”
That’s disappointing, as a result of I’d very a lot take pleasure in watching small boats launch out of an even bigger, flying boat, and drop into the ocean. That stated, I’m unsure the way you’d pull off bush camping – one of the best a part of the style – in a marine battle royale.
Sea of Thieves has two expansions releasing this summer. Cursed Sails releases later this month, whereas Forsaken Shores will probably be accessible in September. You can watch an trailer for the expansions within the video above.
