Sea of Thieves is an excellent example of DLC and added content done correctly. Our Miles Dompier recently did a video a piece on why you should play Sea of Thieves in 2021, and the decision to pick it up is even easier now due to a deal from Best Buy. Right now, you can grab Sea of Thieves from Best Buy for just $20.

For $20, you get a digital copy of the Anniversary Edition of the game on both Xbox and PC.

In his piece, Dompier explains how the game has evolved since its launch:

Sea of Thieves is in a drastically better state now than compared to its launch three years ago and Seasons are the beginning of a confident new chapter for the game. With a more focused and deliberate approach to updates, players finally have a better idea of when they can expect fresh content and rewards. Renown and Pirate Trials eliminate the unrewarding stretches in between voyages and make every session on the seas feel meaningful.The promise of providing a rich, fulfilling pirate sandbox to explore has gradually been realized over the past few years, and the passionate crew at Rare show no signs of slowing down. As someone who played hundreds of hours during year one, I'm thrilled to see how far Sea of Thieves has come and even more excited to see what the future holds. There's never been a better time to grab a crew and hit the seas.

The Microsoft 3-day shopping event ends on February 21, 2020, so make sure to pick up Sea of Thieves before its price goes up.
