Today, I dived into Sea Of Burglars with a single goal in mind: purchase and socialize with a dog. Rare’s pirate sandbox got its big September update yesterday, presenting some brand-new canine pals to the game’s premium shop, and what can I say? I enjoy pets, and I enjoy pirates. This game simply gets me. I ‘d like you all to fulfill Rox, and come with us on our extremely first adventure out on the Sea Of Thieves to go for a walkies on a nice bright island.
Rox was the name of the pet I matured with, who passed away in 2015. He was an outright bastard (whom I loved with all my heart), so it seemed fitting to memorialise him in a pirate video game where he can intimidate individuals permanently.
He made a flying start of this, too, by instantly taking a piss on the deck of my ship the 2nd I set the bugger down.
I rapidly overcame this offense. It’s hard to remain mad at those puppy pet dog eyes. Rox and I continued to explore the ship after that, attempting to find out all the locations we could set him to perch. Ends up, there are only like three places you can put a canine on a yacht (they’re significantly larger than the other Sea Of Burglars animals), however in the end we found a great little window for him to huddle in.
Then we crashed into a rock.
Rox, as he would’ve remained in real life, was totally unphased.
While he simply slept on, I desperately bailed water from our boat in an effort to not drown us both within 10 minutes of setting sail.
The chicken island was not my end goal. The weather there was still a bit naff, and I wished to discover a sunnier location for Rox to have actually a run around on, so onwards we went.
Ultimately, we made it to a lovely clear-skied island simply prior to the sun began to set.
If you elegant bringing along a canine (or a cat, or a parrot, or a monkey) on your Sea Of Burglars sails, you can buy them from the Pirate Emporium in-game for ₤ 4.99 There are a lot of types and colours to pick from, and it actually is rather good having them around on a little solo-slooping sesh.
I’m definitely not the very first individual to consider eternalizing their family pets through Rare’s excellent animals, either. Loads of gamers named kitties after their real-life pets when cats were added to the game previously this year.
