Everyone knows that unique sea-shanty sound that accompanies anything with a pirate in it and Rare seem focused on getting it right. We've heard quite a lot of what will be on offer musically in Sea of Thieves
, thanks to this recent video on how the team went about sourcing the instruments
to use in the score, this short on how players can make their own music
, this selection of tavern tunes
, and not just one
, but two
soundtrack trailers. That's a lot of audio and Rare aren't finished yet.
The fifth instalment of Sea of Thieves
' “Short Haul” series sees the game's composer, Robin Beanland, give us his thoughts on what he believes is the pirate instrument with the most recognisable sound: The Hurdy-Gurdy. For those that don't know, it is an instrument that is crank-turned and produces sound by rubbing a wheel against its strings, a bit like a violin bow.
Sea of Thieves
is still without a confirmed release date but it is expected to be heading to Xbox One and Windows 10 sometime in 2017.
