Today Microsoft and Rare announced that the popular open world online action game Sea of Thieves is coming to Steam.
At the moment, there is no specific release date besides a generic “coming soon.” That being said, the launch date should also be revealed “soon” (hopefully without the TM).
The listing page on Steam is already open. On top of that, we also learn that the Steam version will support cross-play both with Xbox One and with the version of the game on the Windows Store.
If you’re unfamiliar with Sea of Thieves, you can read an official description below directly from the Steam page.
About the Game
Sea of Thieves offers the essential pirate experience, from sailing and fighting to exploring and looting – everything you need to live the pirate life and become a legend in your own right. With no set roles, you have complete freedom to approach the world, and other players, however you choose.
Whether you’re voyaging as a group or sailing solo, you’re bound to encounter other crews in this shared world adventure – but will they be friends or foes, and how will you respond?
A Vast Open World
Explore a vast open world filled with unspoiled islands, sunken ships and mysterious artefacts. Take on quests to hunt for lost treasure, seek out cursed Skeleton Captains or gather valuable cargo for the Trading Companies. Go hunting and fishing or choose from hundreds of optional goals and side-quests.

On your journey to become a Pirate Legend you’ll amass loot, build a reputation and define a unique personal style with your hard-earned rewards. Adventurer. Explorer. Conqueror. What will your legend be?
