I also want to add that this has been my favorite game this generation. It's been a joy watching this game evolve from 2 years ago from the technical alpha, to beta, to retail and post retail free add ons. It's going to be a good year.

Internet meltdown coming.
I don't think so. Anyone with a brain knew this was eventually coming. There are no loot boxes. Just cosmetic items, which is basically what the entire game is built around.

So, the pets can be bought with the in game currency also? Seems the only reason they didn't let you buy the other cosmetics from the start was because the clusterf*** that BF2 became.
Why not just let your buy everything with microtransactions (and the in game currency of course)? It's all just cosmetics anyway.

You honestly can't say that the game didn't stir the loot box market up? I'm not arguing that the game was a greedy s***ty move with you (we've already done this), but that the gaming industry got a fright is clear, no?
What they tried to do before release was wrong, yes. Micro transactions are in every MP game I play. You know how much money I’ve spent since micro transaction became a thing? Zero. I just find it funny when people complain about it. You don’t have to buy it.

Sea Of Thieves Is Now Xbox's "Most Successful" New IP Of The Generation

Rare's Microsoft-exclusive pirating adventure game, Sea of Thieves, has become quite popular since its March 2018 launch. The developer confirmed that more than 10 million people have played the game across Xbox Game Pass, Windows 10 PC, and Xbox One.

Executive producer Joe Neate shared a blog post thanking the community for Sea of Thieves' continued success. "[O]n behalf of everyone at Rare I'd like to say thank you to everyone who's been on this journey with us so far," Neate wrote. "The best news is that we're just getting started and have big plans for the coming year." According to Neate, Sea of Thieves is now "the most successful new IP from Xbox this generation."

In celebration of Sea of Thieves crossing the 10 million player mark, and in conjunction with the game's upcoming Legends of the Seas content update, Neate said players who log in between January 15-22 will receive a free custom sail and a special new emote as a thank you for the sustained support. Further, on January 15, Sea of Thieves' Legend of the Seas content launches as a free update for all players.

Sea of Thieves' last content update, The Seabound Soul, released on November 20 and came with an assortment of new goodies. These include a new tall tale, extra purchasable cosmetics, a brand-new projectile weapon, and more. Completing the added tall tale nets you new sails and weapons."


Glad to hear it. I am sure RARE is happy.

This is probably my most played game of the generation. It got off to a slow start, but I knew it had potential. I just didn't think they would up the content to the point they have. I remember playing the alpha version, which was pretty empty, and then the beta had added some fish and bug fixes, then the launch had missing achievements. It was good, but repetitive.... Now there's just so much going on, so many options, and even a few different play modes. If it weren't an online game, it would be the single player game equivalent of skipping to the 3rd game in the series. This is clearly the best Rare game since coming to Microsoft, and by a long shot, imo.
