The much-anticipated open-world pirate action-adventure title Sea of Thieves is hitting shelves March 20, and as a run up to its release, Microsoft is having a special promotion for those in the market for a new Xbox One X.
Those who are already planning to buy the console to play the game would be pleased to learn that for every Xbox One X sold, Microsoft is going to throw in a digital copy of Sea of Thieves — at no extra cost.
Buy An Xbox One X And Get 'Sea Of Thieves' For Free
The Xbox One X costs $500 on its own and doesn't typically come with a free game, which makes this deal an excellent opportunity to get both a brand-new console and a game for good measure. It should be noted that Sea of Thieves isn't just a game but actually one of the most anticipated Xbox One exclusives of 2018.
The promotion applies to "most Xbox markets," according to Microsoft, and will start from March 18 up to 24. However, the company notes that the start and end dates of the deal will vary from country to country and advises players to keep checking with participating retailers to see if it's available.

Xbox One S
If the Xbox One X is way out of your budget, Microsoft is also offering another bundle. Alongside a 1 TB Xbox One S, customers get an Xbox Wireless Controller, a digital copy of Sea of Thieves and a month's worth of Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass. This bundle is available for preorder now at participating retailers for $300.
Sea Of Thieves Special Edition
For those who just can't get enough of Sea of Thieves, Microsoft is also offering special and limited edition accessories, including a Sea of Thieves-themed Xbox Wireless Controller decked with splotches of purple and green, plus a 2 TB Game Drive, and a limited edition charging stand. These accessories will work with the Xbox One S and Xbox One X.
Sea Of Thieves
As mentioned, Sea of Thieves is an open-world action-adventure game developed by Rare and published by Microsoft Studios exclusively for Xbox One and PC. Players travel the world via a pirate ship and play different roles, plus embark on quests, collect treasures, and engage in combat with other pirates.
