There’s no denying that the appeal of Captain Jack Sparrows goes a long way and Sea of Thieves is proof of that. There was a lot of excitement when the crossover titled A Pirate’s Life was first revealed. The good news is the excitement was carried over to the game.

That’s because according to Sea of Thieves Design Director Mike “Mutinous” Chapman, the game had 4.8 million players back in June. Making that milestone even more impressive is that A Pirate’s Life was released only on June 22.

For those interested to try the high seas, now is also a good time to join the game. From August 20 to August 23, it’s going to be the Gold & Glory Weekend. That means players can earn double gold and reputation.
