    A brand new trailer was shown at the The Game Awards yesterday and in case you missed it, grab your popcorn, move to the edge of your seats and hit play!

    In amongst the chickens, explosions and general pirate mayhem was our release date. It's finally here! Sea of Thieves is setting sail on the 20th March 2018 for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC, with Xbox Play Anywhere, cross play and Xbox One X enhancements. Phew, that's a mouthful! You can pre-order through our shiny new pre-order page, or via the new Pre-Order button right next to your profile icon.

    Pre-ordering gets you an awesome Black Dog Pack with some very stylish items and access to the Sea of Thieves Closed Beta!

    We've also updated our The Game pages... there's a lot of treasure to be found in those pages!

    But wait, there's more! As a Sea of Thieves Insider, you've helped us to build the foundations of this swashbuckling adventure. As a thank you, we'll be granting all Insiders who signed up before the December 1st 2017 deadline, free access to the upcoming Sea of Thieves Closed Beta!

    But wait again? There's even more?!

    Oo yeah, this beautiful limited edition controller is also available for pre-order. It comes with an exclusive in-game Ferryman Clothing Set, 14-day Xbox Live Gold trial and 14-day Xbox Game Pass trial with access to 100+ games (available to new subscribers only).

    We're pirates, so I guess.. it's a hype boat? Get on the hype boat!

    @musicmee Clothes are overated! You want the exclusive Knifelife Black Pantaloons to show your enemies how manly you really are! XD

    Edit: I just crashed my boat and capsized writing that message, my Pantaloons are now a limited edition brown. Almost had a heart attack.

    @captain-scourge You better hurry up with the controller. Its already sold out in Germany. I probably bought the last one lol.

    I'm getting the XBox Controller and probably going to wait for the Collector's before pre-ordering.

    Is there going to be PC bonuses for the Controller, or is it just that Xbox-related bonuses?

  • 8

    I’m very pleased that the game will be available to commentateate my 80th birthday. I assume my picture will be on the box....not on the box?....there is no box? I shall now take my nap and upon awakening I shall draw another cartoon and then order the game anyway. That will make game number 116 still in my library. Thank you very much.

    The DLC will be available on Windows 10 PCs as it is a Play Anywhere, cross play title.

    @khaleesibot Is the play anywhere only for digital versions?

    @khaleesibot

    Thank you for your quick reply, as usual, love the professionalism!

    Though, my question really stems from Exclusive in-game 14-day Xbox Live Gold trial and 14-day Xbox Game Pass trial.

    What's the point in this for PC players?

    You're super welcome!
    The Xbox Game Pass trial is also only for new users, I think the goal with all the extras is so that everyone gets at least one extra bonus. For us primarily PC players, we get the Ferryman Pack!

    Well then, guess this will be the first game I preorder in about 6 years... Cannot resist the black!

    How dare you Rare, making me flip flop on my principles!!
