Sea of Thieves originally launched in March 2018 to a mixed reception. Many players thought Rare crafted a beautiful world, but there wasn’t much to do inside it other than repetitive missions. Rare took those criticisms and went on to add a ton of free DLC like The Arena, Skeleton Ships, and Fishing. They’ve also added other customizable content such as adding 100 new emotes and more ship customization. It looks like all that hard work paid off for Rare. Earlier this year, Microsoft announced that Sea of Thieves had surpassed 10 million players since its launch.
