Sea of Thieves’ release date has been announced

Sea of Thieves release date

Sea of Thieves has a release date. In a trailer shown at last night’s Game Awards, Rare revealed that their swashbuckling adventure will be available on March 20, 2018.

Here’s what you can actually do in Sea of Thieves.

The new trailer does show off a lot of features we’ve already seen, but that means more cannons, more buried treasure, and more sunken wrecks to explore. The trailer did, however, give us a brief look at how player customisation will work, with a whole series of nautical costumes on display, and there was a brief look at something that seemed very ‘endgame boss’ right at the end of the trailer.

Better than that, though, is a clueless chicken who will undoubtedly be the game’s breakout star.

The trailer also revealed that the game is now available for pre-order. Pre-order customers will get access to the ‘Black Dog’ pack, featuring some very edgy costumes and items. Pre-orders will also grant you access to the Sea of Thieves closed beta.
