It’s been a couple of months since our last Behind the Scenes peek into the development of Sea of Thieves. In that time there’s been a metric ship ton of work going on here at Rare not only in building new features, but improving features that have already been released!

Since kicking off the Sea of Thieves Technical Alpha back in December, we’ve been constantly taking on player feedback, reviewing it and then making changes that improve the game experience. Iteration is the name of the game, especially in our latest Behind the Scenes video where Senior Designer Andrew Preston tells us how the team went about revisiting gunplay.
