During the Xbox Games Showcase 2023, Rare showed off their next expansion, featuring the beloved classic characters from Monkey Island.
During the Xbox Games Showcase Rare and Microsoft revealed a new collaboration for Sea of Thieves. This time, Rare is teaming up with LucasFilm for Sea of Thieves: The legend of Monkey Island.
From the Xbox Wire blogpost:
”Announced in today’s Xbox Games Showcase, The Legend of Monkey Island will be released in monthly instalments, starting July 20, telling a brand-new tale featuring characters (and voice actors) from the Monkey Island series. Your adventures will have you meet Guybrush Threepwood, his beloved Elaine, the dreaded ghost captain LeChuck, Murray the Demonic Talking Skull and more iconic characters. You’ll get to visit freely explorable versions of both Mêlée Island and Monkey Island, solving puzzles in a point-and-click style adapted for Sea of Thieves first-person view – and it’ll all take place in the Sea of the Damned, so you’ll have no interruptions from other players as you relive the iconic series in a brand-new way.
Built in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games, the three Tall Tales making up The Legend of Monkey Island (all of which will arrive for free) will bring swashbuckling Sea of Thieves adventures, presenting an authentic story with a single hypothetical question at its heart – what if Guybrush and co. arrived on the Sea of Thieves?”
Sea of Thieves: The Legend of Monkey Island is coming to Sea of Thieves in monthly instalments, starting July 20th. It’s a free update for everyone who owns Sea of Thieves or plays via Game Pass.
