There is something about certain games; a secret ingredient if you will that attracts more and more players. So, what is it that Sea of thieves has that allowed it to reach 10 million players?
Well, this “sea” is filled with pirates, magic, monsters, and adventure. The “prize” was posted by Joe Neate, who felt it only appropriate to thank the game’s community.
“For everyone at Rare, the Sea of thieves community represents the very best of what gaming can be. It’s home to players from more than eighty different countries, bringing together gamers on Xbox Game Pass, Xbox One and Windows 10 PC and creating countless stories and moments that people can treasure. Seeing these stories shared through social media or other community spaces is something that inspires the team every day. To every person who’s played Sea of Thieves, thank you.”
“Our community will be at the centre of our January update – Legends of the Seas – available to all players for free from Wednesday January 15. Not only will this update celebrate our community and its stories, it will allow players to claim two limited-edition gifts to mark our 10 million player milestone. Just play the game between January 15 and 22 (4pm GMT) to claim a set of custom sails for your ship and a new emote! Please note that while this will confirm your eligibility for the gifts, they will be delivered at a later date in February’s content update.”
Even if the new content isn’t something spectacular, the game keeps on pushing players to accomplish more and more challenges, which of course, get harder and more complicated, but that’s the fun? Isn’t it? The new update will send players to hunt down Easter eggs, which will bring new commendations and new tattoos. So, if you want that ink on you, start looking for those bloody eggs.
