Batten down the hatches—Sea of Thieves has launched

Today’s the day—Sea of Thieves has set sail! This new type of multiplayer game has changed the way Xbox gamers can become a pirate legend in this free-roaming game. Dive into this fascinating world with Xbox Ambassadors who’ve braved the high seas already. Shiver me timbers!

Land ho!

We’ve been traveling the sea, waiting for the launch of Sea of Thieves, and it’s finally here. We have some amazing Ambassadors who were Beta and Scale Testers for Sea of Thieves, and here’s what they have to say about the game. Who knew being a pirate could be so much fun?

“I absolutely think it will be a great game to bring the community together not only because team work is such an important feature, but because you can come across other convoys who may or may not be friendly. While testing, I really enjoyed that this was a game that was challenging because of riddles and battles, but it’s also a huge stress reliever game, which is a nice break from all the heavily focused shooter multiplayer games.” – emericagirl24

“I love being in betas in general, the fact you get to help improve games. I’m extremely excited for the game especially getting to see things and do things that were not included in the beta.” – PyrosPlayhouse

“Playing Sea of Thieves was a game that finally unlocked my inner child of pirate fantasy. Being on the waves is so calming. Sailing is the best part for me. I also found myself playing solo just to enjoy sailing. I’m even getting better at fighting other ships.” – MoonLiteWolf

“I think this game is going to be great. Even with teams of 4. Once we’re out on the open water with friends and learn to work together to collect the treasure, fight off other parties, etc. I think we’ll end up losing ourselves to the excitement of exploring. I think this franchise could be as big as Halo or Gears of War.” – Onyx62is
