In celebration of today’s highly anticipated release of Sea of Thieves, Xbox ANZ have creates the world’s first ‘Sing us a Shanty’ service.
Equal parts cool and equal parts slightly weird, Australian and New Zealand players will be able to get personalised pirate shanties sung to them via Xbox Live while they play. Xbox ANZ have partnered with Australian pirate band ‘Captain Hellfire & The Wretched Brethren’ to bring the unique experience to life and the shanties will be broadcast live via Mixer, Facebook and Twitch for all to see.
The Sea of Thieves Sing us a Shanty service will take place on March 24th and 25th and will be offered on a ticketed first-come, first-serve basis for fans. Each pirate shanty will be personalised to the adventures and stories created by the players in the Sea of Thieves world. Fans down under that want tickets need to keep an eye on Xbox ANZ’z Facebook page for more details of how to access tickets via Eventbrite.
