Microsoft's open-world adventure game Sea of Thieves is up for pre-order already, but it will only launch globally on March 20, 2018. This title will be available for both the Xbox One family of devices and Windows 10 PCs.

Last Friday night, Microsoft announced the launch date of the Sea of Thieves shared-world adventure game for the Xbox One and Windows 10 families of devices. The game was announced back at E3 2015, and its first public gameplay demo was shown one year later, at E3 2016. Although it was scheduled to hit Windows and Xbox One by the end of 2017, it looks like Sea of Thieves had to sail some rough waters and will finally hit the market in late March 2018.

Microsoft describes Sea of Thieves as "a new type of multiplayer game where players take to the high seas on epic voyages to unravel puzzling riddles, engage in ship-to-ship battles and discover the treasure of a lifetime." If you're curious to take a closer look at the real thing, there are a lot of gameplay videos on YouTube to check out and I must say the game seems quite fun at first sight.

Those who place their orders now get the Black Dog Pack, a digital package that consists of various in-game unique clothing and items, as well as beta access. For US$74.99, there is also the Xbox Wireless Controller – Sea of Thieves Limited Edition that comes with a 14-day Game Pass trial and the Ferryman Clothing Set for the buyer's Sea of Thieves character. This accessory is expected to ship globally in all Xbox One markets on February 6, 2018.

Sea of Thieves has a price tag of US$59.99, but the closed beta access is limited to a 5-day period in January (the exact date is not public yet). An active membership to Xbox Live Gold is also required.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
