In case you missed it, the Anniversary Edition added plenty of new content to the game earlier this year, including a new series of story experiences you can play solo. Developer Rare also introduced many gameplay improvements including fishing mechanics, ship-mounted harpoons, more diverse megaladon enemies, as well as skeleton ships navigating an expanded world with natural hazards. If you’re a competitive player, a new PvE mode called The Arena is also available.
Sea of Thieves is still free-to-play with Xbox Game Pass, and the game also supports Xbox Play Anywhere and cross play between Xbox One and Windows 10. If Sea of Thieves isn’t really your jam, you can save up to 75% off other Xbox Game Studios titles including Forza Horizon 4, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, and Ori and the Blind Forest for a limited time.
