Sea of Thieves is an open-world pirate adventure where you can find treasure on your own or with friends. There are plenty of other encounters like a megalodon to keep you busy. There's a lot to do, and the title's popularity continues to grow due to its excellent post-launch support.
Many months ago, developer Rare promised that pets and other items would be added to the game. Instead of grinding for gold, these would be purchasable through direct purchases. Well, it looks like the Pirate Emporium will open for business on September 11, when the new Sea of Thieves event starts. You can learn more about it by watching the video.
Hopefully, there will be a lot of unique pets to acquire. I'm going to buy a parrot because I want to be the stereotypical pirate. What about you? Let us know.
Sea of Thieves is doing quite well on Xbox Game Pass. Recently, Xbox's Aaron Greenberg said that "Sea of Thieves has been one of our top-performing titles in Game Pass. It was one of our first titles that we launched day one into the service... it's built a huge community both on the PC and console."
