Sea of Thieves came out in 2018 and was exclusive to the Xbox Store and the Windows Store. The game was also made available for Game Pass on its launch. The game only came to Steam in June of last year, making the milestone that much more impressive.

Sea of Thieves recently hit the 25 million player milestone across all platforms. It seems like it’s been a good year for the game. To honor these two milestones, Rare is giving away the All Together emote for free to players on every platform. All you have to do is log on once at any time from December 22nd to December 31st, and the emote is yours forever!

In the wake of their recent success, Rare made a statement on the Sea of Thieves website assuring fans that more content is in the works. The game just recently got an update adding a number of new items, cosmetics and new mechanics. It also has a holiday event that’s currently going on. Sea of Thieves has been bustling lately, and it doesn’t look like Rare is going to step off the gas pedal any time soon.
