Microsoft’s open-world pirate adventure Sea of Thieves will soon let you play with your friends for free!
Spotted on Twitter by user @h0x0d, developer Rare accidentally posted a trailer for the upcoming event before quickly removing it from their YouTube channel.
According to the video’s description, the event will run between February 6th and February 13th. Anyone who owns the swashbuckling online game will be able to freely invite up to three friends to travel the seven seas with them.
“Are you a lonely pirate? Do you long for a crewmate (or three) to join your piratical exploits? Fear no more, solitary swashbuckler! For one week only, you can invite up to three friends to set sail with you on the Sea of Thieves – completely free! Don’t miss Friends Play Free, running from February 6th–13th. Simply head over to our website and redeem your codes now!”
Since it launched last year, Sea of Thieves has been very well supported by its developer. With numerous free updates, alongside an upcoming patch to make the game’s file size substantially smaller, Sea of Thieves is becoming a fuller experience after its rather barebones launch.
