This shared-world pirate’s life adventure looks awesome, so it’ll be interested to see what else gets added before launch. It is now open for preorder and is, of course, a part of Xbox Play Anywhere, meaning if you buy it digitally you can play it on Xbox One and Windows 10.

This seems like a good release date and I’m looking forward to my time with friends on the high seas.
