Lucid Games recently announced that they have been working with Rare to help bring Sea of Thieves to the PS5. The game’s release on Sony’s console is a major milestone for creator Rare, as it’s the first game in the company’s entire history that will be published on PlayStation.

Sea of Thieves was originally released for the Xbox One in March 2018, and takes the form of a first-person pirate romp where players take to the high seas a shared world on their ship, where you can form alliances or go head-to-head in swashbuckling battles. You’ll also run across islands that you can explore for resources, while hazards such as ghost fleets and even the mythical Kraken will look to impede your progress.

Rare and Lucid Games will bring Sea of Thieves to the PS5 on April 30.
