In alignment with its swashbuckling characters, Sea of Thieves has opened its sails a bit early!
In an attempt to have a "rolling release," a practice becoming more and more common as games become more online reliant, studio Rare has been rolling out access to Sea of Thieves for most of the day. Starting originally in Australia and New Zealand and working its way west around the world, Sea of Thieves has been gradually opening its ports to marauders and treasure seekers for about eight hours now.
So grab your lads, heft some steel, and weigh your anchors.
There's fortune to be had!
