Captain Jack Sparrow Arrives in Sea of Thieves
By Geoff Borgonia June 21, 2021
Microsoft Studios and Rare are bringing characters from Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean to Sea of Thieves.
What does the inclusion of Captain Jack Sparrow and the scurvy dogs of his world bring to the Sea of Thieves game?
Rare laid out the details of the Sea of Thieves: A Pirate's Life collaboration between them and the Walt Disney Company.
"We've worked closely with the Walt Disney Games team throughout this whole process, crafting an original story which brings out the best elements of both Sea of Thieves and their beloved Pirates of the Caribbean franchise."
As for the in-game rationale for the crossover, it appears Captain Jack Sparrow stumbled upon (or rather stole) a great pirate treasure: a golden key that opens to other worlds.
The Pirates of the Caribbean theme will be the main attraction of Sea of Thieves’ Season Three. Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life will include five new Tall Tales developed by Rare.
Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life sails away on June 22, 2021. The Pirates of the Caribbean content will be free to all Sea of Thieves players on Microsoft Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Windows PC through Steam and the Xbox Game Pass subscription.
