15 Comments

Developer Rare is auctioning off a number of cool items to benefit charity, including a cool-looking Xbox One S themed around the UK studio's upcoming Xbox One and PC game, Sea of Thieves.

As reported by Eurogamer, Rare is auctioning off the items for Special Effect, which is a UK-based charity that aims to help people with disabilities through video games and technology.

The eBay auction page for the Xbox One S console shows that the system is already up to £749.99 after 30 bids. The auction ends on March 1. Rare will ship the item internationally, so if you're in the US or another region, you can still bid on the console.

One three of these Sea of Thieves Xbox One S consoles exist in the world.

Rare's other charity auction items include signed and framed Rare Replay art, an original poster for Conker's Bad Fur day, and a Viva Pinata original promotional poster, among other things. You can see everything that Rare has up for auction right here.

One hundred percent of proceeds will go to Special Effect.

Sea of Thieves is an Xbox Play Anywhere game. That means if you buy it (digitally) on Xbox One, you will get the PC version for free and vice versa. Saves and achievements move between systems.

The game comes out in 2017, though a release date has not been announced. While not confirmed, it seems likely that the game will factor into Microsoft's E3 2017 briefing, which now has a date and time.

Microsoft has also stated that this game is the best game that Rare has ever made. A new trailer was recently released--watch it here.
