Sea of Thieves rides the waves on March 20

At the Game Awards over the weekend it was announced that Sea of Thieves will release on March 20, 2018.

The game is now available for pre-order, and you can check out the trailer above for the latest taste of the daring adventures you’ll find in-game.

Pirates who pre-order digitally or at retail will receive exclusive access to a pre-release closed beta, providing the perfect opportunity for fans to find their sea legs ahead of launch (perfect for me as I kept sinking my ship in the Alpha). In addition, players will kick off their sartorial adventures in style in the form of the Black Dog Pack, offering unique clothing & items with spectacular designs.

Another new controller..

Because I need another obviously, but this Sea of Thieves Limited Edition Wireless Controller is a must. The controller features a deep purple translucent design, adorned with laser etched barnacles, one treasured golden trigger and haunted by a mysterious glow-in-the-dark skull.It’s available to preorder now and will release on February 6, 2018.  The controller comes with the exclusive Ferryman Clothing Set for your Sea of Thieves character, a 14 day Xbox Live Gold trial, and a 14-day Game Pass trial at no additional cost.
