This Pirate band will provide custom shanties while you plunder your way through Sea Of Thieves

Brodie Fogg 20 March 2018 NEWS

Ahoy, Captain Hellfire and The Wretched Brethren are on manning the hurdy-gurdy so you don't have to.

In one of the most creative marketing stunts I've seen in a long time, Xbox Australia is giving Sea of Thieves players their very own custom soundtrack, played live by a real-life band of pirates. The 'Sing a Shanty' service will give players their own theme song, customised on the fly by the Australian pirate band, Captain Hellfire and the Wretched Brethren.

Captain Hellfire and his crew will base their songs on the ticket holders' gameplay as it is streamed live.

The service will be broadcast live on the Xbox ANZ Facebook, Mixer and Twitch this Saturday and Sunday.

Tickets are obviously very limited and will go on sale sometime tomorrow through Eventbrite.

Sea of Thieves is available for Xbox One and PC from today and there's more than one way you can get your hands on it.

First up, Microsoft is giving away a free copy with an Xbox One X purchase. Secondly, you can score it via Microsoft's game subscription service, Game Pass (essentially nabbing the game for $10). And lastly, you can go the good 'ol fashion route of buying it outright. We've compared pricing from every Australian retailer here.
