As per the makers, SOT is a “shared-world adventure game”, which means that multiple groups keep encountering each other during their regular adventures, on daily basis.

The basic crux of the game is that a player takes on the role of a pirate and finishes voyages from different trading companies. This is important to do in order to become the ultimate Pirate Legend. And to achieve this rank, players need to reach at least level 50 with three of the trading companies.

Sea of Thieves arrived on Valve’s Steam service in June, last year. Previously, it was an Xbox and PC exclusively. The game was also one of the first exclusives to release on the Xbox Game Pass, the very popular subscription-based gaming service of Xbox.
