Win a Golden Banana Courtesy of Sea of Thieves, Rare and Xbox!
Xbox, Rare Ltd., and the Sea of Thieves crew are giving fans the opportunity to get into a piratey mood ahead of the Sea of Thieves launch by launching a contest for real loot: a golden banana, worth tens of thousands of dollars! Players can team up with friends to complete the challenges, and get a chance at the reward. The first clue is set to land at 12:00 AM pacific time on Monday! Full contest details below!
This is a pretty sweet price, considering the value and the collectability alone. Xbox and Rare are putting a lot of work into promoting their open world pirate adventure, and while everyone is playing the final beta opportunity this weekend, this is another great new bit of news leading into the games launch on March 20th. Remember, those who have Xbox Game Pass will be able to play the game on launch day.
From Xbox PR:
That’s right, London’s famous Smith & Harris Goldsmiths has created four golden bananas, crafted to replicate the health source in Sea of Thieves. The bananas are valued at £80,000* – a loot worthy of even the most discerning of treasure hunters.
