Rare came out of hiding not only to talk about its 30-game retrospective collection, but also a new multiplayer pirates title called Sea of Thieves.

Rare studio head Craig Duncan characterized the MMO-like game as a title built around bringing multiple gamers together in the large world.

Players can pilot and explore islands with others aboard their pirate ship, engage other ships (including in ship-to-ship combat with cannonballs and ship ramming), and even make crew members walk the plank above shark-infested waters.

A touch of island exploring was also teased, including treasure-gathering and fighting skeletons.

No release date was given for the Xbox One exclusive.
