    Sea of Thieves is available on Xbox and Windows PC, it incorporates both crossplay and Play Anywhere.

    Sea of Thieves is also a world that changes and grows, with content being added, events, challenges and new tools for players to use.

    What Sea of Thieves brought us in 2018 from @EGGamer13

    What Does This Mean?

    Sea of Thieves is a game that includes both PvE and PvP elements, it's a combination of both and your voyages will be different each time you log in depending on your chosen goals, the threats (including other players) you encounter and the ships and crews you choose to sail with!

    For new pirates, that first voyage can be daunting so we've collected together a series of hints and tips in an easy to read thread, from some of the most experienced pirates on the seas!

    Where to Start?

    Some great videos that give an overview of some of the most important aspects of the game can be found here and many others on the Sea of Thieves and Rare Ltd Youtube channels

    How does the forum work?

    We'd recommend having a good look around, the Release Notes are a great place to find out what's new and the Mega thread section is a treasure chest of some of the most fervent discussions.

    The forums are a place where you can introduce yourself, make Suggestions and give feedback as well as discuss everything Sea of Thieves or share tales of your adventures and fan creations!

    There's a great guide here from @KnifeLife :

    Hopefully we'll build up something like this one for solo pirates -

  • Ahoy thar Fo'Rum!

    HERE WE ARE! Can you believe it?
    Launch Day is upon us and Sea of Thieves is going to be sailing into peoples hands throughout the day.

    Well, now that we have to pick a Pirate that we are proud of, I thought it would be good fun to screen capture our selected IPG (Infinite Pirate Generator) Pirate and show that picture off here alongside some back story and facts about our Pirates.

  • Hello,
    I just started my voyage today. I'm interested in friending up with fellow pirates on pc. I know just enough to unfurl my sails, raise anchor and point the ship in the right direction. Aside from that, I've been on a couple of solo voyages and managed to find a couple treasure chests for the gold people.

    Someone did blow up my ship with a powder keg, that wasn't nice, but I guess that's why they call it sea of thieves eh?

    Anyway, please introduce yourselves to me in game, I'd love a crew to run with and teach me the pirate life.

  • Started playing with the open beta but left soon after... have returned to discover I cannot get enough of the water ai plus all the great new features...

    Happy to see there is an active community for this game.

    Mostly play on Xbox although I can hop on pc when I can pry myself off the couch 😉

    Look forward to future pirating!

  • Bonsoir ou Bonjour ça dépendera quand vous lirez ce message.

    Je cherche des personnes Mature +20 ans je suis moi même agé de 34 ans.
    Pseudo dans le jeu ou même ici apparement DmcT9005.
    I don't speak english.
    Bonne soirée.

  • A greetings and salutations! The name is Kraken Guard, at your humblest of services!

    I've had my eye set on the Sea of Thieves for quite some time, but was not on Win10. But, after an update which had rendered a demo for a different game unplayable because Win7 was going to become obsolete on the 14th, push came to shove and I upgraded. Which also meant I could finally play!

    I am a PC player -- I do prefer playing in my own space, but I have found that the seas are quite harsh by oneself -- quite a different experience when you're accustomed to the gameplay and mechanics of a different Pirate game(Pirates of the Caribbean Online, to be exact), so I am open to the notion of sailing with other fellow rogues.

  • Just wanted t' introduce myself officially. I'm Wolf, WindchargedWolf if you wish. Despite my name and the aggressive reputation wolves get, I sail the seas in peace and tend to mind my own business. If I approach you, whether on land or sea, it usually means I want to help you out. Please don't shoot me.

    I'm out for the fun, and sometimes on a mission, but I'm usually in a sloop fishing or transporting treasures from various islands and cooking fish. I like to dance on any extremity of my ship while gliding across the water, and I love playing music and drinking too much grog (in no particular order) just as much as the next hardy friend.

    Smooth Sailing, folks!

  • Just started a few days ago and love everything about this game, I got pk'ed 2 or 3 times and it was to much fun. Wishing more people would talk before they just go after you but what ever being a Pirate is not all Dabloons and Grog. Anybody looking for a partner in crime hit me up, I play on PC Cirith Ungol900 would love to sail with a good mate.

  • ahoi matrosen
    wir suchen für unsere flotte noch active matrosen und kapitäne. wir bieten für Xbox und PC spielern jeden Samstag und jeden Sonntag um 13 uhr flotten fahrten an. für weitere infos stehe ich gern zur verfügung. kontakt übet xbox, mein gamertag lautet Novotronic

  • Bonjour je recherche des joueurs Xbox sérieux sans prise de tête merci

  • Hi Hi Mateys

    Um yeah just got Sea of Thieves, and u must say.... WOW, I have no idea where to start..?
    Is there a crew I could join for beginners? A crew/player that would not mind showing me the ropes? Also figure things out together??
    Would also be really cool, to meet new players/Xbox friends/new connections.. Always keen to make new connections.. At moment I only speak English.. My user name is GrizzNizz... Im keen for an adventure

  • I've only just joined yesterday (12 Dec. 2019) and I've already had quite a bit of fun. First off, I'd like to thank the person who gave me two crates and a humble gift yesterday, you said they were for not messing with you while you sold your things. Thanks for helping a new fellow out, even if you didn't know you did! I would like to find you, though, so perhaps we can sail together at some point in time!

    Otherwise, I'm looking forward to hauling gold across the seas with all good friends and company! That's all I'm after. Eventually I'll get to the tomes and the forts and all of that fun stuff but a bit of gold to weigh me down so I can't outrun my enemies properly is what I'm after first!

  • Hi to every pirates out here.
    I’m Achille and I just started Sea of Thieves. I’m a console player and I’ve been playing for a week now. I’m looking for friends to play with. I can speak French, Turkish and English. If anyone want to play just add me on Xbox “AchilleIV” and lets have some good times sailing on this awesome game!!!

  • Hey! I am a 15 year old girl looking for some pirates to join me. I am new to the game, but i already know what the game is about. I noticed that its been hard to play by myself, so i thought that i would come here. I am looking for someone under 18 (i would prefer another girl) that would like to play in the afternoon and would like to make calls on discord. If you are intrested dm me on my discord( ask for it replying to this). Sorry ab the bad english, i am from Spain.

  • Hello fellow Pirates. I picked this up at launch, played it for a month but the notorious "beard" errors drove me away from the seas I loved so much.
    Found myself with a solid itch (might be the scurvy) to get my sea legs back, but doing it alone is no fun. So I am looking to join a crew of like-minded sea dogs looking to have fun doing pretty much whatever (as pirates do). I play Xbox (though I could install on my Alienware if needed), I do have a mic, I'm not a screeching 12 year old, and LOVE to RP this experience. I primarily play in the afternoons and weekends (due to work).
    My gamertag is Gabriel Rayven, shoot me a message in a bottle and lets hit the high seas!

  • So I was told this is an awesome game. I get my new computer and I get this game. Day one, trying to figure out how to play and doing the tutorial and I have been killed by players as I try to figure out how to play following the tutorial quest. I I cannot learn a thing if I am just killed off by players following me around to kill brand spanking new players. Very discouraging and frustating to not even know how to do anything but die before i am tossed in a spot people can kill me. (I managed to accidentally hit T and could text! WOW not that it did any good.) I left the game and left my body and will contemplate if i will return as i have no clue how to play or what to do to defend myself or set sail. it is not fun to try to run or hide when i am trying to follow the tutorial which seems to not work very well anyhow...a bit glitchy and I have had to resart a few times over the past few hours. it also iuncluded having to delete and download the game again since my HUD was missing. So far...I am not enjoying this. :(

  • As a recent subscriber to Game pass I came across SoT and instantly became hooked (pun intended) Arrr . I'm on my third day of sailing and have become familiar with the games mechanics. Through the hours of game play I've found it increasingly difficult to roam the seas without invasion from crews realizing I need one of my own. This lone sea dog is in search of adventure and a crew. Gamer Tag illumeAnonymous, I play evenings on central time zone between 17:00 (5p.m) - 22:30 week days and at all hrs on the weekend. In search of a mature group that plays objectively in task completion through in-game achievements, story line end game content and DLC expansions.

  • Just downloaded the game today. Played for 2 hours collected some chest and items the closed the game. Got back on several hours later and it was as if I started a new game. Had to select what ship I wanted and what game I was playing. The game did not save anything I had collected. Is this how this game is that you have to collect items and chest every time you play ? If so this game is not for me.

  • Hello everyone, not actually sure what I should put here so I might just ramble lol but I'm new(ish) to SoT, I've played a few times before in the past but I've started really grinding and have been playing consistently for the past 2 or 3 weeks and I love the game so I decided I want to join the community. I come from a mixed background of playing lots of FPS games for competitive challenge and playing a lot of adventure games / RPGs for fun so you can imagine how SoT is a great balance for me. I've been watching a few streamers play as well which really sparked my interest. But mostly I just love pirates and blackpowder weapons. I played a lot of Napoleonic War era games as well as the old "Pirates of the Burning Sea" and that really old Pirates of the Caribbean open world game, where I really learned ship-to-ship combat, and SoT is just so much fun in a lot of ways.

  • I've come to the Sea of Thieves looking for fun and adventure. I have played a wide range of survival games and after watching a friend stream the game for a while I finally decided that it might just be the game for me.

    Now with a good understanding of the game, my plans are to get a crew together and start progressing more before getting involved in the arena games. I hope this game keeps progressing and I look forward to seeing what comes from it.

    You can find me on Twitch Streaming, I have been streaming since I started playing. You can also find highlights and clips that I post on my YouTube channel. Links Below.

    Happy Sailing & I will see you serverside.

  • I just wanted to say hi to everyone, and check out the community forums! I am a fresh 23 year old pirate, I got this game a little over a week ago, and am loving every second of it.

    I am mostly a solo slooper, and heck I love it. While I do envy the larger ships I love my lil adventures and sailing the seas while fishing along the way.

    I do enjoy... my fair share of debauchery though, I love sneaking on to peoples ships and spooking them with a fun voice changer sounding like an angry spirit.

    Over all so far I am loving the game, it does get pretty grindy but the experiences have been great and I love sailing the Sea!

    Hope to see ya out there, hopefully I get to haunt your ship ;)

  • Hey I'm Kirsty, 31 and from Scotland. I've been playing the game for about 7 months. We got it free with my fiance's Xbox last April but didn't play it untill March this year. I usually play with my dad or a couple of friends. I started streaming only when I started playing this game I'd never done it before.

    I love the game and the people you meet because of it.

  • I am The Hype MadDawgMike! Public Relations for the St Louis Community Meet Up (Twitch St Louis), Co-President for Extra Life St Louis, and Charity Director for Blue Esports!
