The Sea of Thieves servers came online earlier this week for Xbox One and PC, so obviously one of the first things we did was find the kraken and do battle with the giant sea beast. Part of the appeal here is the surprise, so we won't spoil all the details. Check out our full gameplay video embedded above to watch all the ways we tried to bring down the massive monster.
Sea of Thieves launched on March 20 for Xbox One and PC. You can buy it outright for $60 on either system or get it on Xbox One with an Xbox Game Pass subscription ($10/month). Starting with Sea of Thieves, all of Microsoft's first-party games will launch into the Game Pass catalog, including the next Halo and Gears of War titles.
In other news, Microsoft has announced a promotion where you can get a free copy of Sea of Thieves when you buy a new Xbox One X. Additionally, you can take a look what's in the game's cheeky day-one patch and see what we think of the game so far.
