The Sea of Thieves are about to get a whole lot more magical. In a recent announcement at E3 2021, the team from Rare has revealed their plans to release a major content collaboration with Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean, called A Pirate's Life. The pairing will be available to players on June 22.
While this pirate-sandbox title hasn't been shy when it comes to first-party Xbox game crossovers, this marks the announcement of the first licensed franchise outside of gaming to hit this ongoing title.
Not much is currently known about what this content collaboration will look like in Sea of Thieves, but it appears iconic characters like Davy Jones, Jack Sparrow, and many more will be making their debut. In the trailer, players see the Sea of Thieves gang rescuing Jack Sparrow from prison, which is how the movies begin. He even mentions the "Sea of Thieves" so you know it's legit.
This is absolutely exciting news for fans of Sea of Thieves, but should also serve as a great opportunity to introduce even more players to one of Xbox's most successful showcases of their commitment to games-as-as-service titles.
