Few games need to perfect their wind and water behaviors as much as Rare's upcoming pirate's-life-for-me adventure game, Sea of Thieves
. In a new series of developer videos below, you can hear from the creators themselves on just how much attention has gone into the details surrounding working on a ship, interacting with the wind, making the water feel and look wonderful, and much more.
There's also a second episode of their SoT-focused podcast, Tales From The Tavern, that rounds up some of the Gamescom experiences seen by Rare a few weeks ago.
Sea of Thieves
is without a solid release date, though it's looking like a 2017 release at this point.
