Sea of Thieves Make friends emote

Sea of Thieves is an upcoming action-adventure game for Windows and Xbox One. The title is currently work in progress but players already have access to the Closed Beta.

Josh Stein (Microsoft’s Xbox Community Program Manager) recently unveiled a very interesting game feature that allows players to make friends quicker.

If you encounter an interesting fellow pirate on the high seas and you think he’d make a great adventure partner, you can do the “Make Friends” emote and this will trigger the add-a-friend feature on Xbox Live.

As you can see in the screenshot above, you’ve got three options available: you can add your fellow pirate on your friends list or your favorite friends list. As a quick reminder, favorite friends are listed first on your friends list.

If the respective pirate is already on your friends list, you can also choose to remove him by selecting the ‘Remove friend’ option.

The announcement caused a lot of excitement among gamers. They welcomed the idea adding that it’s a really cool and fun feature to use the Xbox live service.

That’s a great feature. it cuts out a few steps of the process…

The only downside is that the pop-up takes a large chunk of the screen and some players find it quite annoying.

Love this feature so much. Also wish I could disable it, as it’s a really cool emote but if I use it I generally get a big popup in front of my screen.
