Sea of Thieves is the latest game from Rare, a studio best known for its work on classic games, like Donkey Kong Country, Banjo Kazooie, and Perfect Dark. It's a console exclusive on Xbox One, though digital copies enjoy Play Anywhere support, meaning you can play it on both Xbox One and PC. More notably, it's the first game to launch day and date through Xbox Game Pass.
