Those in the know will be enjoying Sea of Thieves free access when the game launches on March 20. This is done using the Xbox Game Pass trial, which works for both Xbox One and PC.
The Xbox Game Pass is a subscription service that gives players access to over 100 games. Normally it would cost $9.99 per month, but new subscribers can get a 14-day free trial.
Simply start the Xbox Game Pass free trial on March 20, get Sea of Thieves downloading, and then enjoy it for the next two weeks, without paying a single dollar.
If you don’t plan to use Xbox Game Pass beyond the trial period, ensure you cancel the subscription before the 14-day period is over. If you forget to cancel, you’ll be charged $9.99. (We recommend setting a reminder on your phone, so you don’t forget!)
