As you might have seen in last week’s announcement, we were honoured to share that Sea of Thieves has now passed 10 million unique players! To all of you who’ve joined us on our voyage so far: thank you. It’s mind-blowing to think of so many people setting sail on the Sea of Thieves, and it’s all made possible by the support and passion of you, our fantastic community.

To celebrate this incredible achievement, we’ve crafted two special in-game gifts for you to equip, should you wish to showcase the part you played in reaching that all-important 10 million milestone. All you need to do to qualify for these goodies is play the Legends of the Sea update in its first week – that means before 4pm GMT on January 22nd. Those of you who play within this January 15th-22nd window will be eligible for both of the limited edition items, which will be available for use when they arrive in the game next month as part of February’s content update.

What are these items exactly, we hear you ask? Well, our special celebratory gifts are the wonderful ‘X’ Marks the Spot Sails and ‘X’ Marks the Spot emote. You’ll have to wait a little while longer to see our ‘X’ Marks the Spot emote animations in action (think Aaron Greenberg, but pirate) – but we have your first peek at the beautiful black-and-gold ‘X’ Marks the Spot Sails right here!

Don’t forget, Legends of the Sea goes live on January 15th, shining a spotlight on player immortalisations and bringing new content to the world of Sea of Thieves. Read all about it when the content update arrives on Wednesday!
