Free 14 day Gamepass Trail = Free Sea of Theives.

How many of those 1m users, where playing the game for free on gamepass?

also Free 14day trail for Gamepass.
Like 90% of that 1m user base, could be people that just signed up to try Gamepass and are playing the game for free.

This thread would be very differnt if it instead stated "100k copies of sea of theives sold"

Eh the 14 days game pass has been around since early 2017 so most people probably already used it already.  But yeah there's probably some using their free trial to play. Hopefully they like it and stay subbed.

Dude, stop, 90%? Come on, fact is we don't have a clue how many people are using GamePass but it's still impressive either way, players are what matters most to Sea of Thieves considering it's a GaaS, If Rare keeps a good portion of players It would be a success to them, no matter if it's $60 retail copies, 14 day free trials (Once per account) or $10 GamePass (You could use the fact it's $10 against every game upcoming).

A big point of GamePass is to keep people playing the game, you can literally play Sea of Thieves for $10, either way 1m is impressive, shows interest in the game and hopefully Rare can keep them around with their post launch support.

But how likely even is that? Thats a stupid statement imo because compare that how albums are sold now with the new streaming services, it's not like every album isn't charting high and no album sells to platinum level now. It's possible that it only sold 100k so far but it's highly unlikely and the odds just aren't there.

It's a big point of GamePass, to keep people playing the games, no matter the price.

90% is actually generous. I would have said 130% myself, but I got beaten to the punch.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I highly doubt that anywhere close to 90% of them are playing it on a free trial on Gamepass.  I feel like even 50% would be a little too high.  It could still be high, but logistically it wouldn't make much sense if it were.

I was trying to make a point.... I dont actually believe its 90%.
But yeah I think it could be high, more than half are probably playing Sea of Theives via Gamepass imo.

How many of that are actually just people finally given a reason to use that 14day free trail of gamepass? probably alot too.



What I have seen from streamers and what some of them think after a while is that if you do not play with friends this game is boring as hell, and it soon become boring/stale/monotonously even with friends.



If it isn't turnbased it isn't worth playing   (mostly)

I'm just saying most people would have used it by now. And for those that used it it's good for MS. They got news subs and when SoD2 comes out they will need to pay for gamepass.
