Sea of Thieves is about to add a new harbor for piracy and antics. Rare announced today that the co-op pirate game is coming to Steam.
On Xbox Wire, Rare Studio Head Craig Duncan went into more detail. Though there's no date set just yet for Sea of Thieves' arrival on Steam, the developer did confirm that Steam users will be able to play across platforms with Xbox One and Windows 10 players. A Steam page for the Xbox Game Studios title went live today as well.
Duncan also notes that Sea of Thieves has crossed 10 million unique players, no small feat for Rare's pirate life sim. While it is part of Xbox Game Pass, that's still a fairly high number of players, and right now, hopping on a ship and sailing off for distant adventure sounds pretty good.
Sea of Thieves has come a long way since its 2018 launch, with Rare regularly adding new updates and content for players to explore. It even has a PvP arena and a tutorial now, led by the one and only Pirate Lord, and all of this will be included in the Steam version as well.
News of a set date for Sea of Thieves' Steam launch is still to come, but if there are PC players who haven't picked it up through Game Pass yet, this seems like a pretty good excuse to do so.
