After stepping down production of Kinect only games, Rare have clearly had some time on their hands. Obviously they've not been idle during this time and have intact been working on a brand new multiplayer IP, Sea of Thieves.
The pirate-themed multiplayer game which Rare have described as their most ambitious title to date, allowing players to band together and explore islands, seek out treasure and fight enemies. The trailer showed off a game with Rares distinct style on show, offering bright colours and a stylish cartoon world.
While little else was really explained, player names appearing above their avatars hints at an MMO style game.
Once you've assembled your pirate gang, you're free to explore the ocean, battle with other groups and generally live out all those Jack Sparrow dreams you've been harbouring (see what I did there?) for so long! Expect lots of cannon fire, ship ramming and obviously prepare to be boarded!
Sea of Thieves is due out on Windows 10 and Xbox One "holiday 2016".
