One of the oldest components of any video game is the loading screen, the last gate between a player and the game. Over the years, the loading screen has evolved from a progress bar to images and text. Some even have helpful in-game tips for the player. Now that will change because Sea Of Thieves lets players drop in and out of their new vs. mode. Sea Of Thieves multiplayer ditching loading screens is an achievement, per new details.
- Sea Of Thieves is letting players drop in and out of matchmaking seamlessly.
- This will have huge impacts on other gaming and multiplayer in general.
Sea Of Thieves has done something gaming fans have wanted for years in the latest video game titles. This latest drop in and out of matchmaking system lets players matchmake in real-time and enter another person’s game without a loading screen. For the time being, this is limited to the vs. mode, but we might see it on others with time.
It is also important to note that this does not just throw players into the game directly. The player’s ship is kept in a waiting area where the crew can prepare the vessel for battle. This is a good choice, as if you were just to throw players into the fight, it could cause pandemonium.
In Sea of Thieves Season Eight, opt-in player-vs-player matchmaking will happen across different servers without any loading screen, seamlessly in adventure.

This is a technical achievement that will affect not only Sea Of Thieves but other games as well. By implementing this method, we could see games starting to abandon loading screens and having, at the very least interactive rooms. I would rather have a simulation of a load-out room than a blank picture to stare at while playing a game.
As for the game, Sea of Thieves is an action-adventure video game that enables players to wear the boots of a pirate and take a vast venture into the ocean. The game was released on March 20, 2018, for Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X and S.
