The promotion will be available in most Xbox One markets starting March 18 through March 24, but start and end dates will vary by market, so you'll want to check with your local retailer for more information. So every Xbox One X purchased at the selected retailers, which costs $499.99 United States dollars, will come with a digital copy of Sea of Thieves. It's releasing next Tuesday - on the 20th of March.
Strap on your boots and get those sea legs ready because Sea of Thieves just put out its launch trailer which is brimming with all sorts of pirate goodness.
This is a pretty surprising promotion because Sea of Thieves is definitely Microsoft's biggest game of the spring and potentially one of the biggest games of 2018 as a whole. If you are interested in getting the game for free but are unable to splurge for the Xbox One X, Microsoft also has you covered. If Sea of Thieves is really tickling your pickle, Microsoft is also making a limited edition Xbox One S controller available that has an exclusive Sea of Thieves paint job. The developer has released the launch trailer for their new sailing, treasure hunting, and rum drinking co-op pirate game, Sea of Thieves. A new Xbox One S bundle will be offered as well.
Whether you're gaming on Xbox One X or Xbox One S, there's never been a better time to set sail with your friends on Xbox.
