Developer company of Sea of Thieves, Rare, has released a pirate cover of “Jump” as a tribute to the famous guitarist, Eddie Van Halen.

A small note here, Microsoft has added a new DLC in Sea of Thieves in order to support the Stand up to Cancer charity campaign. 100% of proceeds from the Sails of Union made through the Microsoft Store outside North America will go to charity, while 75% of the purchase price on Steam will be given to the charity. Sails of Union will be available until November 6.

Edward Lodewijk Van Halen (January 26, 1955) was a Dutch-born American musician, songwriter, producer, and inventor. He was the main songwriter and lead guitarist of the American rock band Van Halen, which he co-founded in 1972 with his brother, drummer Alex Van Halen, bassist Mark Stone, and singer David Lee Roth. He was well known for popularizing the tapping guitar solo technique, allowing rapid arpeggios to be played with two hands on the fretboard.

Sadly, Van Halen passed away 5 days ago on October 6 at the age of 65. In order to celebrate the life of Van Halen, a group of Rare’s developers on the UK Sea of Thieves department decided to record a video. The cover of the guitarist’s popular song “Jump” was uploaded on Twitter where it’s been met with praise from music lovers and gamers alike. Apparently, Van Halen’s music had a huge impact on the creation of Sea of Thieves and was loved by Rare’s studio. The video contains a cover of the famous track by using instruments that you can find in-game. We have embedded it above for you to watch, in case that you’ve missed it.

In other news, many Sea of Thieves streamers have quit the game because of the increased toxicity. Thanks for reading! If you enjoyed the article and want to support the site, feel free to throw a like at our official facebook page.
