Sea of Thieves has the potential to be a return to colorful, charming form for the developer who brought us the likes of Banjo-Kazooie and Viva Piñata, but one question has stuck with Rare’s multiplayer pirate sandbox: what do you actually do? Thankfully, the developers have opened up about the game’s progression and quests in a new gameplay demonstration today, finally making some of those details clear.

Quests in Sea of Thieves are known as “voyages,” and these are purchased from one of the in-world factions, who’ll offer you more items, titles, and more complex challenges as you rank up. Voyages appear as physical contracts in-game, which members of your pirate crew can vote on to determine the shape of your next adventure.
