    Got off to a rocky start today. I picked up my free starter map, looked in some barrels for some cannonballs then heard some ominous music to find that my as yet untouched ship was sinking at the end of the pier. WTF.

    New ship put me in the middle of the night, which was a complete pain in the arse because the sun was shining on the TV and I couldn't see shit.

    Anyway, finally grabbed the treasure and found a message in a bottle which is something I've never seen before. I now have a map with 4 treasures on it. Bonus news, my next free map wanted me to go to that same island. 5 treasures, one island. Bargain.

    And then I ran out of lunchtime and had to come back to work. Hopefully the maps will be persistent and available when I log back in tonight.

    This happened to me and Sparra. Assuming it's just a bug.

    Yeah, we had that exact thing. Was weird.

    Also, we found a Galleon at an Outpost... but no crew anywhere.

    We sank it by accident. Actual accident. \o/

    Sorry for ignoring your invite, Sparrows. Was on my laptop and I guess the Xbox app just auto-runs in the background.

    Really want to try and get on this weekend.

    Is there a way I can play this or is it invite only from M$?

    Controller has arrived. Will try and give it a go tonight but failing that, itíll be on Sunday.

    Really like the look of the controller. Glow in the dark skull is a fun touch. Works really well.

    They do appear to have improved the npcs in this a little, there's conversation trees in there and they grunt and say one line at best, it's an improvement and already shows it helps bring some more flavour but for me this really needs full voice acting. Here's hoping they are still to put it in.
    Also the character creator is in here now, I can't help feel it's needs some more attractive models (especially the women) I know the vision of pirates is naturally a bit scummy but I want to make mine a goddess of the sea lol.

    If VO hasnít been in any builds to date, itíd be a miracle if they voiced the entire game by launch.

    Iíd say whatís here is what youíll get.

    Spent an hour on this earlier, sure is pretty but still feck all to do... Unless I'm missing something. Surely a few quests would have been an idea?

    There's some VO, but I think they're going for text as that's much more easily changed, without having to get new VO for new chatter.

    Duff - there are quests, only one kind, in this test build.

    Stephen - I will be on in a bit.

    Part of the world is a bit spookier and greenish. Might it have been that?

    Could have been...? I only played for 30 mins before the party disbanded.

    Sounds like it: there are three regions, and whilst two are pretty bright and blue, the other is murkier and has a definite tinge to the colours and lighting.

    Is it a different area? I only played it for about an hour last night, they certainly look like they've added more islands at least.

    R.e the voiceovers, if any of you played fable legends that developed quite a bit over the betas in a similar way, placeholder stuff that was fleshed out a little in time but then look how that turned out..............they've moved it on a step already and kudos for that after my earlier feelings on it but it's still not quite there for me. I'm not banking the house on it by any stretch but as I've said I feel it really needs to be there in the end, or it's going to feel emptier with much less personality.


    I won't mention it again 🤣🤣

    Yah i would like more VO cues. The NPCs have some nice animations but the islands still feel a wee quiet. Less noticeable in a crew, but solo it has an effect.

    Also, pirates are excellent gender benders. Moustache lady Sparrows looks a treat

    BTW did anybody try to play co-op with a PC and an X1X? I think this game would be great to play together with my 12 year old.

    I have 'cross played' a few times. Worked fine.

    Yes but I'm struggling to drum up the interest to continue to play it as it stands. Maybe they should mix up the quests a bit more, I'm just curious to evaluate the whole package now.

    There's a cover feature in this month's Edge. I might track down a copy.

    I was on a reddit thread for a different game the other day, and someone said something that reminded me of SoT and that, but it wasn't about SoT as such: '"fun to play" is a risky pillar to build a game on' (being exclusive, in this scenario, of grinds/loot).
