“The sense of fun, wonder and the imaginative spirit that we hold real affection for in the world of Pirates of the Caribbean always felt like it could be complementary to the world of Sea of Thieves,” said Sea of Thieves’ Executive Producer Joe Neate.
Video game developer Rare has teamed up with Disney to bring the world of Pirates of the Caribbean to its adventure game, Sea of Thieves.
The story campaign Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life will launch as part of Sea of Thieves: Season Three on June 22nd. The campaign will see players go on a quest to free Jack Sparrow from prison and unlock the power of the world’s greatest Pirate Treasure.
“Sea of Thieves aims to immerse players in a fantastical depiction of the pirate life, filled with colourful characters and vibrant locations to explore,” said Sea of Thieves’ Executive Producer Joe Neate.
“To see iconic characters like Jack Sparrow and his crew represented in Sea of Thieves’ unique art style, interacting with our own pirate universe – it’s been such an amazing experience to bring this whole thing to life and we can’t wait for you to dive in.”
Mike Chapman, Sea of Thieves’ Creative Director, added: “The heart of our story explores what it truly means to be a pirate on the Sea of Thieves, and this has allowed us not only to tap into the deeper meaning of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies and the original attraction, but also allow players to go on adventures with Jack Sparrow, learning more about how he sees the pirate life and his place on the Sea of Thieves.
“This story moves the Sea of Thieves world forwards in unexpected ways, and it’s been a joy to bring these two worlds together, treating both in a way that feels authentic and delightful to experience.”
