Rare Ltd’s upcoming open-world pirate adventure game, Sea of Thieves, is getting a comic book adaptation. Titan Comics, the publisher behind other graphic novel and comic book adaptations of popular video games such as Wolfenstein and Bloodborne, has revealed that it will be bringing the Microsoft exclusive title to bookstores around the same time of the game’s release on Xbox One and Windows PC.
The series will be suitable for all ages and follows the story of rival pirate gangs competing to find treasure. The following is Titan Comics’ description of the series.
“In Titan Comics’ brand-new series, follow two competing crews of pirates, bound by a shared past and a single destiny, as they sail the Sea of Thieves in a race to track down an ancient treasure. Along the way they’ll deal with undead hordes, devious traps and their own bitter rivalries, but which crew will emerge victorious and ultimately claim the legendary loot?”
The comic book adaptation of Sea of Thieves will be written by Jeremy Whitley (whose previous credits include Princeless, Thor Vs. Hulk) and features art by Rhoald Marcellius (The Incredible Hulks, Warren Ellis’ Supergod). The game will release on Xbox One and Windows PC on March 20, 2018.
