'Sea of Thieves' Crossover
The online pirate game's crossover will be named "Sea of Thieves: A Pirate's Life." Players will see Jack Sparrow and Davy Jones enter the colorful world of the Xbox exclusive for an original story that consists of five Tail Tales.
The trailer was dropped on E3 2021's official YouTube channel. It shows that players will encounter new challenges and face new enemies such as bloodthirsty mermaids and cursed crews, according to TechRadar.
"Sea of Thieves" Season 2 is now underway and is expected to end on July 1. Players can earn various cosmetic rewards by completing deeds, voyages, and trials, so there is a lot to do if you have not set sail for a while, according to The Verge.

What is Sea of Thieves About?
"Sea of Thieves" is a first-person multiplayer game that was launched in 2018. The game lets players cooperate with each other to explore an open world through a pirate ship.
The game is called a shared-world adventure game. This means that groups of players will encounter each other regularly during their adventures and something is going head-to-head with each other and sometimes forming alliances.
The player gets to be the pirate and needs to complete the voyages from different trading companies to become the ultimate pirate legend.
The players need to become at least level 50 with 3 of the trading companies to become a Pirate Legend. "Sea of Thieves" is developed by Rare, and Microsoft Studios publish it.
At the beginning of the adventure game, the player selects their generated player avatar. It is set in a shared world, which means that groups of players will encounter each other throughout their adventures.
Both solo and duo players can sail around in a nimble sloop, while players are playing in a group control a larger 3-man brigantine or a 4-man galleon cooperatively by assuming different roles like steering the ship, manning the cannons, boarding the enemy ships, navigating, and scouting from the crow's nest.
Players may encounter characters who may attack them with cannonballs, weapons or attempt to board their ship. If the areas under the deck take damage, water will flow in and cause the ship to sink.
Players need to patch up the holes on their ship with wood planks and remove the water by using buckets. Alliances can also be made with other parties of players.
The players will receive gold bonuses when a group in the same alliance completes a voyage. Forming an alliance does not prevent the players from fighting with each other. If the player dies, they are then sent to a ghost ship known as the Ferry of the Damned, where they wait until they can respawn.
