One of 2018’s most anticipated games, Sea of Thieves is a shared world pirate adventure from Rare launching on the Xbox One family of devices and Windows 10 PCs, where players will crew up in search of fortune and glory on their quest to become pirate legends.
Titan Books will be partnering with Rare to release a companion title slated for early 2018 entitled Tales from the Sea of Thieves. Narrated by three unique pirate characters, the book will reveal the world through their eyes. Whether getting to grips with life aboard ship or embroiled in a dangerous hunt for ancient treasure, they’ll introduce and explore the fantastical Sea of Thieves itself – home to mysterious islands, mermaids, cursed former pirates and unimaginable riches.
Including sea shanties, artwork by the pirate protagonists and much more, the book will immerse readers completely in Sea of Thieves’ ambience and lore. As an artefact fished from the in-game universe, it features all the wear and tear expected from a grog-swilling pirate’s life.
Tales from the Sea of Thieves was born in close collaboration with the creative team at Rare, its inspirations including events experienced within the Sea of Thieves Insider Programme, designed to give the loyal community a chance to provide input and help shape the game. Set to publish in hardback with full colour illustrations throughout, the book will release in the UK and North America and market at £24.99 and $29.95 respectively. Tales from the Sea of Thieves is set to offer fans a unique insight into this rich, evocative world as they prepare to crew up and set sail on adventures of their own!
