As I still have Gamepass, figured I’d give Sea of Thieves a go (especially as the install size has been reduced to a mere 28gb)
Needless to say, it didn’t go well.
Playing it solo, I got myself a boat, and a quest to dig up some treasure.
Turns out it’s quite tricky sailing all by yourself, so my approach to the island didn’t go too smoothly. There was a nasty sounding crunching noise as I tried raise the sails, steer and lower the anchor. Chose to ignore it and jumped to land. After shooting as few skeletons, I used my treasure map to locate the chest!
Feeling smug I turned to see… my boat disappearing beneath the waves. Oh bugger.
Luckily I found a row boat on a nearby beach so decided to row for home.
Turns out it’s quite tricky to navigate the ocean without a map (at least, I couldn’t find one on my person) so I got lost, it got dark, and then a storm hit.
Surprisingly survived and found land again! Sadly, it wasn’t home.
Thanks for getting me somewhere safer than the open sea, little boat
It was quite pretty on the new island, but deserted. I think I may be stuck here for ever…
