Sea of Thieves is coming soon on Steam, will support cross-play between Xbox One and Windows 10

Rare and Microsoft have announced that Sea of Thieves will be coming soon on Steam. Sea of Thieves came out last year on Windows Store and aims to offer the essential pirate experience, from sailing and fighting to exploring and looting.

Sea of Thieves on Steam will feature Adventure mode and the latest updates, The Arena for PvP multiplayer, Maiden Voyage for brand-new players and everything in between. Rare has also confirmed cross play will allow Xbox One, Windows 10 and Steam users to set sail together. As such, players will be able to assemble their perfect pirate crew, whatever their preferred platform. However, do note that the Steam version will require Windows 10, and will not work on Windows 8 or 7.

Sea of Thieves features an open world filled with unspoiled islands, sunken ships and mysterious artefacts. Players will take on quests to hunt for lost treasure, seek out cursed Skeleton Captains or gather valuable cargo for the Trading Companies. Moreover, they can go hunting and fishing or choose from hundreds of optional goals and side-quests.

Furthermore, gamers can play through the Tall Tales to experience Sea of Thieves’ take on a story-driven campaign. This mode features 11 tales to play through across two storylines, offering around 30 hours of pirate fantasy.
