Sea of Thieves is apparently live ahead of its release on the Xbox Game Pass. The game is set to launch today on PC and Xbox One but some users were able to download it earlier by changing their store region. However, if you had planned to do so, be warned that this can result in breaking the terms of service set by Microsoft as pointed out by Rare.
Sea of Thieves is an open world MMO from Rare that basically puts you in the shoe of a pirate. It features online multiplayer between PC and Xbox One users and it is also Xbox Play Anywhere release, which means if you buy it on PC through Windows 10 or for Xbox One, you will be able to enjoy it on either platform.
Sea of Thieves is less than 20 GB if the download estimates from people who have it early are to believed. This is likely without any post-launch updates so expect to see the size go up from here. It also features full support for the Xbox One X hardware with 4K and HDR support.
Sea of Thieves was developed by Rare and it will be published by Microsoft. This is one of the first major game that will launch with Xbox Game Pass on the same day and date as the regular release. If you can’t bother to pay $60 for the full game, you can also rent it for a month by paying $10 for the Xbox Game Pass and you will be able to enjoy more than 100 games along with Sea of Thieves.
