Behind the Scenes #6 - Non-Verbal Communications
Not much of a talker? We’ve got you covered! Take a look at the alternative options in Sea of Thieves.
Over the last decade and beyond, online play has risen to claim a huge role in the world of gaming. Sea of Thieves is a shared world adventure game, meaning at any given time you could encounter other plucky pirates and brave buccaneers. The thing is, we understand that being an online socialite isn’t everyone’s tankard of grog.
From conception we wanted Sea of Thieves to be a game that caters to everyone. We want you to be able to have fun engaging with friend and foe alike, even if using voice chat isn’t an option. So whether you are sailing solo or joining a crew of strangers, we hope to give you tools that make interaction easy and stress-free.
Dive into our most recent Developer Update on non-verbal communications to learn more, as Community Video Manager Jon McFarlane and Senior Designer Andrew Preston talk over a work in progress system that we’ve been tinkering with to make sure everyone feels confident to assume their role in a legendary crew!
