Whether your new to the game, an experienced sailor of the savage seas or still chasing bananas for your Sea of Thieves achievements, this weekend is the perfect time to dive in on the open world action as developer Rare will be hosting their first Gold and Glory event.
All you need to do to reap the extra benefits of the event is deliver your spoils to the Trading Companies. Most pirates will be regularly doing this anyway, so you'll be getting bigger rewards for the same amount of work.
Grab your crew and set sail in Sea of Thieves from 11am GMT on Friday through until 11am GMT on Monday. Cash in your chests, skulls, and other trades and enjoy the extra profit. Build up your rank as much as you can and see if you can finally reach the Become a Pirate Legend achievement before the game's first anniversary next week.
We've got the full list of Sea of Thieves achievements - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
