FYI, this story is more than a year old

Sea of Thieves is out now in Australia and New Zealand and gamers from those countries are in for a special treat. You might be getting a concert while you are playing the game on Xbox One or Windows 10 this weekend.

Australian pirate band called "Captain Hellfire - The Wretched Brethren" will be singing several shanties while you play Sea of Thieves. This invitation is open to both Australian and New Zealand gamers that are playing the game.

The pirate shanties will be broadcast live via Mixer, Facebook and Twitch or you can hear them via Eventbrite in a first come first serve basis. More info will be posted about this on the official Xbox ANZ Facebook page.

The songs will be broadcast on Saturday and Sunday, from 12pm until 8pm NZT. This is March 24th and March 25th respectively and the songs should make playing the game a more authentic pirating experience.

Jeremy “Harbinger” Hinton, Captain of Xbox Australia, said: “'Sea of Thieves' is already such an immersive game by design, so it's only fitting we give fans the chance to get their very own shanties from a real-life pirate band. We're really looking forward to seeing and hearing the tales of adventure on high seas, shanties and treasured stories created between players and the band.

Sea of Thieves is out now for Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs. Look out for our own review for the game coming later this month.
