Developer Rare has released a new deep dive trailer for Sea of Thieves: Season 8. The deep dive trailer focuses on the main feature of the game’s eighth season – PvP matchmaking and the content surrounding it. Check out the deep dive below.
According to lead designer Andrew Preston, the new PvP mode was added as a way to give players an easier way to fight against other pirate crews, especially since running into another ship in the game’s open seas doesn’t necessarily mean it will everyone involved wants to fight.
The PvP mode also hopes to emphasize one of the most unique parts of Sea of Thieves in the form of its ship-to-ship combat, according to senior designer George Orton.
The studio details the work that went into creating various aspects of the new PvP mode, such as the sound design, music, and even the visuals for the underwater channels that players travel through as they are matched .
Hardly had detailed Sea of Thieves Season 8 pretty much in a trailer released last week, explaining the two new factions, how matchmaking works, and new cosmetic rewards.
