Sea of Thieves has become an extremely popular multiplayer game and satisfies the urge to play as a pirate. You are free to play solo, with randoms, and alongside friends as you sail the seas and get into mischief. While Sea of Thieves is played in first-person perspective, you may be wondering if you can play Sea of Thieves in third-person.
Is Sea of Thieves Third Person?
The answer is no—you cannot play Sea of Thieves in third-person. The only exception is that some emotes will give you a third-person view, but it is only during the emote. Once you finish the emote or move, you are returned to Sea of Thieves' traditional first-person view.
For a game all about cosmetics, this is a missed opportunity because you cannot see your character hardly at all. This means any hairstyle, clothing, accessories, and more that you earn can only be seen by other players for the most part.
There has been no word from the developer is a third-person will be added, but it would certainly allow players to enjoy the game the way they want. That being said, putting Sea of Thieves in third-person may ruin the immersion or make it harder to be sneaky.
