The Window PC version of Sea of Thieves, the rollicking sandbox pirate adventure game from Rare, is coming to Steam on June 3. The game will be available for $39.99, and all progress from other versions of the game will carry over. There will also be full cross-play, so Xbox One, Windows 10, and Steam players will all be sailing the same sea. If you already own a copy of the game on Windows 10 or Xbox One, you’ll still need to purchase the Steam version if you want to play there. Progress will carry over, however.
