LOOM is back — Sea of Thieves collaboration with Monkey Island is live

We all love the high seas hijinks of the Monkey Island series. In fact, Richard Allen said in our Tales of Monkey Island review, “Return to Monkey Island is a fantastic end to Guybrush’s compulsive search for the secret of Monkey Island and perfectly encapsulates what made these iconic games so popular in the first place.” Now, this new release might not be a new game, but it may be as no-brainer of a crossover as the Pirates of the Caribbean one Sea of Thieves did a few years back. The Legend of Monkey Island is now available to play in Sea of Thieves, so go and check it out now!
