Sea of Thieves Friends Play Free

Last week during the first episode of Inside Xbox for 2019, it was announced that existing owners of Sea of Thieves or anyone who has downloaded it via Xbox Game Pass would be given three game codes to give to friends to try the game for free for a week with their Friends Play Free program. I bought the game at release and played a couple of times but couldn’t get into it. The game has received multiple content updates since then including ‘Cursed Thieves’, ‘Forsaken Shores’ and ‘Shrouded Spoils’ plus more, all for free. I thought it’d be a...
