[Update #1] Microsoft has advised us that tickets will now be available from tomorrow (March 21) instead of today.
Microsoft has announced today that it is giving away a special prize to celebrate the launch of Sea of Thieves. Microsoft has partnered with Aussie pirate band Captain Hellfire & The Wretched Brethren to create a Sea of Thieves personalised shanty for some lucky players.
Dubbed the ‘Sing us a Shanty’ service, this is the first of its kind in the world. While playing the game, players can have their very own Sea of Thieves personalised shanty played live.
Captain Hellfire & The Wretched Brethren will join players online and play live. The sessions will be live-streamed and broadcast on Mixer, Facebook and Twitch.
Sea of Thieves Personalised Shanty
The ‘Sing us a Shanty’ service will take place on March 24 & 25 for lucky fans who get their hands on a ticket. To secure a ticket to have your very own Sea of Thieves personalised shanty, keep an eye on the Xbox ANZ Facebook page.
Tickets are free and will be available on a first come, first serve basis. They will be available from midday today (March 20, 2018) and will disappear fast to make sure you keep your eyes open.
The tickets will be available through Eventbrite so make sure you stay sharp and book your sessions. Captain of Xbox Australia, Jeremy “Harbinger” Hinton said of this world first event;
Sea of Thieves is already such an immersive game by design, so it’s only fitting we give fans the chance to get their very own shanties from a real-life pirate band.
We’re really looking forward to seeing and hearing the tales of adventure on high seas, shanties and treasured stories created between players and the band.
Don’t miss out!
Sea of Thieves is an open-world, pirate game with emergent gameplay where anything can happen. In my first two-hours with the game, I sank an enemy ship, caught some chickens and fell off my ship while barfing because I was too drunk.
I only wish that I had a band singing my very own Sea of Thieves shanty while it all happened. That’s the only way it could have been made any more fun.
Sea of Thieves is available today and is an Xbox Play Anywhere title. Players can team up with friends on Xbox One and PC and set sail in a massive open-world filled with treasure and adventure.
To make the trip even more fun, make sure you keep a lookout for the tickets on the Xbox ANZ Facebook page.
