As Sea of Thieves storms into its third year on the seas with the wind fully in its sails, now feels like the perfect moment to celebrate the many tales of bravery, boldness and… bananas that have come about since its launch back in March 2018. From epic adventures and colourful encounters to surprising secrets, life on the Sea of Thieves has inspired countless stories and provided a beautifully rich backdrop for our community to forge lifelong friendships.
That’s why today we’re launching our brand new competition – ‘The Greatest Tales Never Told’ – to encourage pirates everywhere to recreate their own favourite tale of time well spent on the Sea of Thieves. All you need to do to participate is this: record the telling of your most memorable adventure in a way that makes best use of your own creativity and the tools offered below, and share it with us using #SoTTalesContest on Instagram, Twitter or YouTube! Some serious treasure is up for grabs for the production boasting the most wit, suspense and surprise, with the top storytelling submission winning:
- An MSI Trident X Plus 9SF-488EU Gaming PC
- Your pirate featured in an upcoming Sea of Thieves publication
To help you craft your chronicle, we’ve scoured our archives to offer you a wealth of Sea of Thieves supporting assets including a wide range of in-game artwork – available to download now from the official competition page. And don’t worry if you don’t necessarily have the knowhow to put together a full production, as we’ve created a very special Sea of Thieves Instagram filter that you’re also free to use. Remember, if you use the filter, be sure to use the #SoTTalesContest hashtag on your Instagram story to make it count as an entry.
So there you have it: the challenge to tell your greatest Sea of Thieves tale has been set! When it’s ready, share it using the #SoTTalesContest tag on Instagram, Twitter or YouTube, and enjoy a barrelful of fantastical piratical adventures from your fellow players while you wait to see if you’re a winner. The competition runs from June 22nd to July 3rd – for more FAQs on entry and eligibility, see the official competition page.
