Sea of Thieves hits Steam next month with full cross-play

The pirate sandbox debuts on Steam in June

Sea of Thieves

The Steam version of Sea of Thieves, is finally due to launch on June 2, opening up Rare’s pirate sandbox to a whole new crew of players. The game will feature full cross-play with the Xbox One and Windows Store versions, so you won’t have to worry about sailing empty seas – here’s what you need to know ahead of launch.

Sea of Thieves hits Steam on June 2 at a price of $39.99 / £34.99 / €39.99. This version will still require you to sign in through Xbox Live to integrate everything across the various networks, and enable cross-play, as the official FAQ explains. That also means your progress will carry over if you’ve already played SoT on another platform, though you will not get a free Steam copy if you already own the game.

Rare’s also produced a new trailer to highlight some of the changes that have come to Sea of Thieves since launch. For newer players, the relevant stuff includes a new tutorial and introduction mission that properly introduces the game.
