The old aphorism is that there’s no honor among thieves. But there can be honor, companionship, and even just good old-fashioned friendship in Sea of Thieves. You just need to get your friends playing, and to do that, the game is kicking off its new Friends Play Free event with today’s maintenance. Players who have joined the free “Insiders” program will get a code that can be distributed to their friends, allowing them to play the game for free for the duration of the event.
The update is also adding the new Mercenary Voyages to the game to give players a quick idea of all the various content available in the game, a fine tour for players heretofore unfamiliar with the high seas adventures available in the title. The goal, as mentioned explicitly, is to have more players in and excited for the game’s upcoming one-year anniversary on March 20th. So if it’s a pirate’s life for you and you’d like it to be a pirate’s life for your friends as well, take advantage of the promotion when maintenance is finished.
