We're back working hard on Sea of Thieves after the holidays and a December chock-full of announcements. It's received a massive amount of hype as the game that intends to put Rare back on the map, after having its brand diminished since its glory days developing games like Donkey Kong Country and Goldeneye. You will also get a 14 day trial for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass.
