'Sea of Thieves' (ALL) Kicks Off the Holidays With The Festival of Giving

by Rainier on Dec. 11, 2019 @ 5:50 p.m. PST

Sea of Thieves is an immersive, shared-world adventure game filled with pirates, unexpected dangers and loot for the taking.

Sea of Thieves is a uniquely co-operative multiplayer experience1 set in a shared world that combines the thrill of adventuring together with friends with the unpredictability of emergent play and unexpected threats – both from other players and the world itself.

Be the pirates you want to be, share adventures with friends and set your own rules, roles and goals in a world where every sail on the horizon is another crew of players with unknown intent.

Explore, fight and live the pirate life together in this uniquely fresh and fun multiplayer game. Choose your voyage and decide how you’ll approach adventures in a world where every sail on the horizon is another crew of players with unknown intent.

Sea of Thieves also supports cross-play across the Xbox One family of devices and Windows 10 PCs so that everyone can play regardless of their preferred platform.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and there’s no better place to spend it than on the Sea of Thieves.

Put out the decorations, hang up your stocking and enjoy our latest monthly content update, Festival of Giving. This update is available for free to all Sea of Thieves players who have bought the game on Xbox One or on PC, or those who have access to it with Xbox Game Pass. Simply download and install the latest Sea of Thieves update to join in with the Festival of Giving!

Available to all players for free from today, the Festival of Giving update brings with it a stocking full of festive treats. Holiday hijinks are in full swing with Gift Seeker Voyages, offering a pretty penny for pirates who can track down and retrieve a shipment of gifts lost at sea. Speak to Stitcher Jim in any tavern to get started and earn valuable Doubloons for each lost gift you deliver safely to the Masked Stranger at The Reaper’s Hideout. What’s more, in the spirit of the season we’ve introduced the Calendar of Giving, offering all players daily in-game incentives from December 13–24!

For players who find Sea of Thieves in their stockings this year, the Festival of Giving brings with it the Maiden Voyage, a new introductory adventure that’s a must-play for every pirate. For those new to the game or in need of a refresher, it’s an ideal first experience and a ‘safe’ place to hone your skills. For more seasoned pirates, it’s a chance to check out an unexplored island hidden beyond the Devil’s Shroud, meet the Pirate Lord and unlock new Commendations and exclusive cosmetics.

If you’re interested in the latest seasonal fashion and wares, visit the Pirate Emporium to stock up on a time-limited set of festive-themed weapons and pet outfits or take advantage of the Emporium’s first ever sale! What’s more, selected Ancient Coin bundles have been boosted by 10%, giving you even more coin to treat yourself to a special Christmas gift. Additionally, players have the chance to give back and donate to charity by purchasing a unique SpecialEffect ship cosmetic.

There’s lots more to tuck in to, including more Ashen Tomes to seek, three new Skeleton Lords to battle at active Forts and new cosmetics available from Outpost shops and the Black Market. For full details, check out the Festival of Giving page on our website or explore the full release notes.

Key Features:

  • A unique co-op experience that combines the thrill of adventuring together with friends with the unpredictability of a shared landscape and its threats, both from other players and the world itself.
  • Designed around players working together with shared goals and rewards, where you’ll go on epic voyages in search of legendary artefacts and buried treasure, but in a world where every sail on the horizon is another crew. What flag are they flying, and what do they want?
  • Crew up with your friends and be the pirates you want, choosing your own roles and goals. Explore the world, take on quests, or seek out conflict. It’s your crew against the world, and how you deal with other crews is entirely up to you.
  • Invites players into a beautiful world with a distinctive art style, ripe for exploration and with mythical creatures lurking on islands and under the inviting surface of the sea…
  • Offers an experience that will evolve over time, landing in players’ hands early and growing thanks to community insights and feedback. New ways to play will be unveiled as the world expands and evolves.

Sea of Thieves is now available for Xbox One and PC as an Xbox Play Anywhere title.
