Is it a pirate’s life for you? Gamers and aspiring pirates are probably already familiar with “Sea of Thieves,” the shared world action-adventure video game from Rare that lets you embark on your own pirate experience, full of thrilling quests as you navigate the high seas.

Well, two pirate worlds are now about to collide. Disney collaborated with Rare and Xbox to bring you Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life, an exciting original story to save the pirate’s way of life alongside none other than Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” legend Captain Jack Sparrow… and it comes out TODAY!

In this new story campaign, an unforgettable adventure takes place over five Tall Tales. After rescuing Captain Jack Sparrow from an unfortunate predicament, you’ll set sail alongside him to uncover secrets, encounter characters old and new, and clash with surprising enemies as you explore the Sea of Thieves – and visit some new locations that’ll be familiar to fans of Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” film franchise and the beloved theme park attraction!

If you think that riding the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction immerses you into Jack Sparrow’s treacherous world plagued by scoundrels, this game will take that immersion to a whole new level. It showcases several iconic scenes from the original 1967 Pirates of the Caribbean attraction in Disneyland park, like the Treasure Room, the Ship Battle, and— my personal favorite— the Jail Scene featuring the dog holding the keys to freedom. Pirates fans can adventure and explore through these well-known scenes brought to life in the game in beautiful detail and truly authentic to the classic attraction. The exciting new gameplay experience casts YOU, the players, as the main characters within this adventurous world!

  • Worst thing Disney could have done. Rare has been known for not dealing with a griefing problem and I am pretty sure that, just like me and my family had happen to us only a few minutes ago, the toxic player base on Sea of Thieves is going to drive the people wanting to play the new update away. You can’t enjoy the update at all because the quests are being camped. When you’re already dying because you can’t find statues needed to unlock a door and a rival player shoots you in the back, it’s not a “magical” experience. The first tall tale? Amazing. Loved it. Loved I could get it done without having to worry about having another player kill me mid-sentence. Can’t get passed the first one though because we can’t go three seconds without being killed or having our ship sank. Good job Disney. Really picked a good partnership there.
