Yarr, yo ho, walk the plank, feed Johnny Depp his lines through an earpiece, and other faintly nautical words are all appropriate today, as Sea of Thieves has arrived today on Steam. Now users of Valve’s omnipresent PC platform can also download and play the game on PC, saving you from less savory methods of getting the game installed and working on your desktop. You can get cats, even! They’re cute and you can dress them up, if you wish to.
Of course, it’s going to cost you $39.99 without any launch discount to dress up that cat, so it’s up to you if the prospect of a boat and a cat is worth the price.
The game has also kicked off some Twitch drops, offering some free gewgaws to players who watch partnered streamers over the next two weeks. So you can, theoretically, be sailing the high seas while watching someone else sail the high seas and earning new things for sailing the high seas in the process. Or you can just pick up your cat and cuddle a kitty in-game. Whatever floats your boat.
Twitch Drops are now live. Watch Sea of Thieves partnered streamers over the next 14 days to unlock Mutinous Fist Ship Set parts, Onyx equipment and emotes.
