Sea of Thieves pre-order

Visit the Sea of Thieves page to learn more about the game.

Pre-orders for Sea of Thieves started on December 7th 2017, and will continue until the game launches on March 20th 2018. Once the game has launched, you can purchase it from the Store, but the launch bundles will differ from the pre-launch promotion bundles.

By pre-ordering Sea of Thieves, you will gain the following exclusive features:

  • Black Dog Pack (available in-game after March 20th 2018)
  • The opportunity to enter the Closed Beta – visit the Sea of Thieves website for more info

When you pre-order Sea of Thieves, you'll see a placeholder tile in your game library. This is intentional, and it will unlock on the day the game launches. To make sure that you download the game before the game unlocks:

  • Go to Settings > Power & startup > Power mode & startup and make sure that Power mode is set to Instant-on. This will allow the game to download in the background once it’s available.
  • Go to Settings > System > Updates and select the “Keep my games & apps up to date” box. This will ensure that any updates to the game are downloaded before the game unlocks.

See Pre-order Xbox One games in the Xbox Store to learn more about managing your pre-order.
