Go Bananas for the Sea of Thieves Launch

Set sail and go for the gold.

Sea of Thieves for the Xbox One and Windows 10 PC launches on March 20th, but starting today, you can embark on a journey to win some real treasure in the form of a bunch of UK Hallmarked 18-carat golden bananas, valued at £20,000 per banana.

Beginning today at 12:00am PT, a series of 15 riddles will be released, and on Wednesday, March 21st at 13:00 PT (1:00pm PT), participants will have seven hours to visit xbox.com/thebananaquest and input their answers for a chance at solving the final riddle on March 22nd. This Quest is worldwide, however, and the riddles will be scattered about both online and across several real-life locations, including Key West, Florida; London, United Kingdom; Berlin, Germany; Sydney, Australia; Paris, France; and Victoria, Canada.

For more details and to register your crew, visit xbox.com/thebananaquest. They also say that this is the best place for viewing riddles as they’re released, but that you’ll want to keep your good eye on Xbox on Facebook, Rare, and local social channels (whatever that means — stuff like Xbox Canada on Facebook, perhaps?) as well.

As noted, Sea of Thieves comes to Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs tomorrow, and will also be available on Xbox Game Pass at launch, too. And if you like, there’s still time to pre-order to get the exclusive Black Dog Pack (which contains clothing a salty dog such as yourself might find stylish, and items featuring “unique, spectacular designs”).
