Sea of Thieves – Season 12

I’ve been getting back into Sea of Thieves recently. Being an original fan from playing it on the Xbox One at release, I’ve seen it grow. I’ve been frustrated with it, enamoured with it, and always come back to seeing how it’s going.

This time, I’ve been testing it on the Steam Deck and diving into the Monkey Island content that was released sometime last year.

However, in this time, Rare has also released Season 12 and seen the launch of the game on Playstation 5! It’s one of a few Xbox Studio’s games to hit the platform, and I think if we’re being honest, the expanded player base can only be a good thing.

Sea of Thieves – On deck!

Quick side note before we go to a summary of the press content. Playing Sea of Thieves on the Steam Deck is a joy. Walking on-deck, on deck is cool. Sea of Thieves in bed is fun and it runs great.

I’ve only played a couple of hours on it so far, but experienced no issues, and with a holiday coming up, I intend to sail the seas during some downtime. Being able to play it and take it with me is ideal, because a short voyage here and there is a simple kind of pleasure not many games can deliver!
