We’re creeping up on a month since the launch of Sea of Thieves, and pirates all on the open sea have enjoyed becoming the next pirate legend. To celebrate the launch of Sea of Thieves, your Xbox Ambassador Team was fortunate enough to team up with the Microsoft store in Bellevue Square to give pirates everywhere a mighty fine night to celebrate.
On March 20, your Xbox Ambassador Team sailed down to the Microsoft store in Bellevue Square where we had a night full of pirate-themed events to celebrate the launch of Sea of Thieves. There was a pirate costume contest, pirate trivia, a pirate impersonation contest, and so much more!
The night began with the awesome pirate costume contest. Many pirates dressed up in their best gear to show their pirate spirit. The winner of the pirate costume was a man by the name of Black Beard, arrr!
After the pirate costume contest, your favorite ACE—Mister Ruxpin—put on an amazing few rounds of private trivia. First-place winners won digital copies of Sea of Thieves and second- and third-place winners won Xbox Ambassador swag like socks, sunglasses, stickers, and wristbands!
Toward the second half of the evening, the Xbox Ambassador Team put on a contest for who can put on the best pirate impersonation—the best part was seeing pirates bust out their best pirate voices! While these fun contests were going on, the Microsoft store in Bellevue Square had a row of Xbox consoles and PCs lined up for anyone to play. There were even in-game contents, like who could swim in the sea the longest without dying to a shark and who could find a certain in-game location first. One awesome gamer girl took things into her own hands and fought every shark she came up against—she’ll grow up to be an awesome gamer, we can feel it in our bones.
One of the last main events of the night was when the Microsoft store raffled away an Xbox One S Sea of Thieves Bundle to one lucky mom—can you see her happy son in the background right over her shoulder? Mother and son were both super stoked.
The Xbox Ambassador Team was thankful to help launch Sea of Thieves, and we were happy to partner with the Microsoft store in Bellevue Square to help bring more pirate fun to our community!
