About a month ago, Rare started a brand new Sea of Thieves video series titled “Behind the Scenes”. So far the new videos have given us a closer look at the work going into the highly anticipated sword combat and how the team takes and implements feedback from the Technical Alpha players. If you are interested in the game, in Rare or even just game development in general, this new video series is a real treat! We will be updating this page as new videos for the series are released.
