Sea of Thieves is an open-world pirate adventure game where you take on the sea in search for loot and glory. No voyage is complete without a crew. You can have up to four pirates in your crew, but before you set sail, you want to make sure all of your mateys can join you for a swashbuckling adventure. The question is, can you set sail with your friends on different platforms?

Yes, Sea of Thieves is, in fact, a cross-platform game. You can play with your friends on the Xbox One as well as the PC. Your progress will also be saved if you transfer between an Xbox One, the Xbox PC Client, and the Steam client.

Keep in mind that although you can transfer your progress to the Steam version of the game, you will have to purchase it an additional time. The ownership credit only transfers between the Xbox One and Xbox Windows app. However, if you are subscribed to the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you will have free access to the game on both Xbox clients.
