The players are eager, eager to launch into the sea with their ship and crew at their backs. Sea of Thieves, Rare’s pirate adventure game, is proof of this: already accumulates more than 5 million users in its version of Steam, where it was released in the summer of last year. That figure also does not include users who come from Xbox or Xbox Game Pass. In fact, as of October 2021, the game had reached 25 million pirates and buccaneers. Expansion A Pirate’s Life, for its part, will have attracted 4.8 million users in June.

Sea of Thieves: Players take to the sea
Sea of Thieves has pioneered the new Xbox business model, thanks to its presence in Xbox Game Pass where it has shown that games first-party of Redmond are more on the rise than ever. Also, being available in the subscription catalog has not prevented you from continuing attracting “premium players”, so to speak, who pay the full price of the title to enjoy this proposal.
Rare took to the helm of his Twitter account to confirm the recent milestone: “We celebrate the arrival of more than five million scoundrels to Sea of Thieves and Steam!“To celebrate it, the studio will give away to all who log in between December 22 at 3:00 p.m. (Spanish peninsular time) and December 30 at 1 in the morning receive the emote for free All Together Now.
Receive the All Together Now emote for free to celebrate 5 million players
We have to point out that these 5 million Steam users obviously do not include players who come from Xbox and Game Pass. When it was announced in October that the game already had 25 million users, yes that the players coming from these three slopes were included: Steam, Xbox and Game Pass. What is clear is that the Rare title has found a niche to continue attracting pirates to its shores. In fact, this summer it happened that four of the top ten best-selling games on Steam are on Xbox Game Pass, including Sea of Thieves.
