What happens when you sail off the edge of the map in Sea of Thieves

After our four-player escapades (opens in new tab) in the Sea of Thieves (opens in new tab) closed beta yesterday, Chris Livingston and I returned to the open ocean for a longer journey on a smaller, two-person vessel. We hunted treasure, harassed bigger ships (opens in new tab), and had an all around good time—never sank once.

We got a few good stories out of the session, and some new criticism of the beta which we'll keep exploring ahead of Sea of Thieves' March release, but the best was definitely when we decided to see what happens when you sail off the map.

Somehow, we came out of it alive. Watch above if you don't mind it being spoiled, or on YouTube (opens in new tab).

Tyler grew up in Silicon Valley alongside Apple and Microsoft, playing games like Zork and Arkanoid on the early personal computers his parents brought home. He was later captivated by Myst, SimCity, Civilization, Command & Conquer, Bushido Blade (yeah, he had Bleem!), and all the shooters they call "boomer shooters" now. In 2006, Tyler wrote his first professional review of a videogame: Super Dragon Ball Z for the PS2. He thought it was OK. In 2011, he joined PC Gamer, and today he's focused on the site's news coverage. After work, he practices boxing and adds to his 1,200 hours in Rocket League.
