    Went fishing.

    Megalodon scoped me out.

    Skeleton crew tried to kill me - I sunk them I think? I ran out of cannon balls then I tried to flee.

    Just to go fishing.

    Went fishing.

    Massive storm.

    Find a crate of silk not too far from the fishing outpost.

    Decide to head back in the massive storm because I already waited 15 minutes, and it wasn't letting up. Pretty sure lightning struck my boat a couple times.

    Then a skeleton ship attacks, but I fuck it up GOOD this time. Got like 5 shots into its hull as it made a pass at me, and a couple more after that. Meanwhile I'm trying to stop the ship from crashing into rocks and repairing the damn hull from the cannonballs while the bloody storm is STILL messing with the navigation/helm.

    Storm is still raging, and there's like 8 items to gather from the remains of the skeleton ship. I decide to just make do with about 5 items (some skulls and crates of tea) because I was already spending a ton of time swimming, and the storm was nuts.

    I manage to go way off-course on the return trip, but the skies start clearing.

    At high noon, a bloody Megalodon creeps up on me as I'm trying to repair the ship again - wasn't sure if the turd hit me or not but there was a hole to plug.

    It pisses off, and I make it back to the outpost and spend a good 20 minutes between boat and merchants offloading stuff. It could have been shorter, but I got lazy and landed on the opposite side of the island, and I didn't feel like parking again.

    For some reason the intense combat music started playing on the outpost island, which spooked me, but I couldn't figure out why the heck it was thinking I was in combat. Unless the megalodon followed me...



    And that's how I go fishing, apparently. (I've made a good 20K just fishing moistly peacefully!)

    The game needs pies. For Pie-rates.

    Animations look great although the one where the dog urinates and then sits looks very weird to me. I don't think I've ever seen a dog urinate and then sit where it just urinated. :p

    If you haven't played in a while or this is your first time this new video is a great primer on what's new.

    Key optimizations?
    Hopefully there's more as that's the default in my books.

    Been a while I've talked about this or even played this, but I might need to jump back in...

    Jack Sparrow & Davy Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean are crossing over with Sea of Thieves in an update called A Pirate's Life & launches June 22. :shock:

    Hopefully this leads to more collaborations between Disney and Rare, they'd be a perfect fit for their ip.

    So is Johnny Depp voicing Captain Jack or do they have a good sound-a-like?

    Sound-a-like.
    I don’t believe Depp is currently on working terms with Disney. At least that has not been resolved.
