After a year of anticipation, Microsoft finally showed off Sea of Thieves to less than positive results.

From what we can tell, it seems like the type of game where players can plunder islands and the deep sea for treasure. What surprised us is how Microsoft went about showing off the game. Instead of giving us a straight gameplay, the company demonstrated pre-recorded segments.

In the footage, some Microsoft employees sailed ships and fire cannons at each other, but instead of coming away impressed, we came away annoyed. The players screamed and talked too much which made it difficult for us to lose ourself in what was being shown on screen.

Sea of Thieves is a game filled with potential, but Microsoft is finding it hard to get gamers excited for it. We hope whenever the software giant shows off this title again, it will allow for a long gameplay session to give players a true preview of what to expect.

Sea of Thieves wasn’t the only game announced at E3 by Microsoft as it also announced the Xbox One Slim to much fanfare. Things got even louder when Xbox head man, Phil Spencer, introduced Project Scorpio as the next best thing — and there is nothing Sony can do about it.
