The Sea of Thieves team has put out a new video that recaps a stream event from last week. Hosted by YouTuber "Rocketbear", a number of Rare devs were on hand to set sail into the recently-added Arena. According to the description, the event features "some tense crew vs crew contests" in the Arena, a new addition to the game that has been widely praised by players.
Experience the thrill of competition and engage in explosive encounters in The Arena – a place dedicated to contests of seafaring skill on the Sea of Thieves! The proudest pirates love to show off their abilities and The Arena is the ideal place for it. Trust in your crew and test your mettle in this dedicated game mode.
The Arena is a new game mode designed to complement the existing Sea of Thieves adventure. It allows players to dive straight into on-demand competitive play with other crews for more action-focused encounters. Combining higher-stakes teamwork and strategy, The Arena provides a unique gameplay experience and a new way to enjoy the world of Sea of Thieves.
