Sea of Thieves Third Anniversary celebrates crossing over 20 million players since its launch with a chest full of goodies and bonuses
Rare announced this morning that this weekend marks the Sea of Thieves Third Anniversary. Back in March 2018, Sea of Thieves embarked on its journey on Xbox One and Windows 10 and has now amassed over 20 million pirates. To thank players for their support and to mark the occasion, Rare has gifted them a chest full of goodies and bonuses on top of the final update for Season One which goes live today. The final season update brings the mystical Sea of Sands collection to the Pirate Emporium, along with the Gold Curse Macaw and Aslation, the ROFL Emote, and more!
