Over the last year, Microsoft has been making an effort to bring more of its games to Steam, leaving behind the Windows Store exclusive strategy. While games like Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Gears 5 were quick to make it over, others have taken a bit longer. Recently, State of Decay 2 officially made the jump to Steam and now, Sea of Thieves is also going to be joining the list.
Sea of Thieves didn’t get off to the best start but Rare has revamped the game over the years with consistent updates. The pirate adventure sim now has a lot more to do and thanks to a healthy player base, you are bound to run into other pirates along the way to mix things up a bit.
Microsoft and Rare announced that Sea of Thieves would be coming to Steam ‘soon’ back in early April but now, a proper release date has been added to the game’s listing, pinning the Steam launch in for June 3rd.
The game won’t be as cheap as State of Decay 2 was when it made the jump to Steam. When the game comes over, it will be selling for £34.99/$39.99. Alternatively, if you subscribe to Xbox Game Pass for PC, you can download and play the game at any time on Windows 10.
KitGuru Says: I prefer using Game Pass for these titles nowadays but being able to have these games on Steam is always a tempting proposition. Are any of you planning on giving Sea of Thieves a try when it comes to Steam?
