SEA OF THIEVES Is Starting A Worldwide Digital Treasure Hunt!
In the celebration of the launch of Sea of Thieves on March 20, 2018, Microsoft is hosting a worldwide digital treasure hunt called The Quest, where members will have the chance to take home one out of four UK Hallmarked 18-carat golden bananas.
The treasure hunt was revealed during the first episode of Microsoft’s new streaming show, Inside Xbox. The prize was made by London goldsmith Smith & Harris, who created four golden bananas modeled after the iconic health item in Sea of Thieves. Each of the bananas is valued at £20,000 a piece.
The Quest will commence one day before the game’s release on Monday, March 19, 2018, at 1 am PT/4: 00 am ET/8: 00 am UK/7: 00 pm AET. In whole, 15 puzzles will be given out for members to solve, with a new clue to be released in a time of 3-4 hours over three days. On Wednesday, March 21, players will be given seven hours to solve the riddles and submit their results.
The riddles will be mostly distributed online, however, others will be distributed in several real-world locations including London, UK; Key West, Florida; Sydney, Australia; Paris, France; Berlin, Germany; and Victoria, Canada. The first team from each country specified above to answer the puzzles correctly will then move onto the next round to answer the last riddle on March 22.

Sea of Thieves will be released on PC and the Xbox One on March 20.
