The Sea of Thieves game is getting a new crossover with the Fightin’ Frogs ship set inspired by the new Battletoads game remake. Players can now grab their new amphibious ship set tomorrow with the release of the new Battletoads. However, there is a catch to the crossover. The players will have to play the game through Act One of the remake to acquire the Battletoads ship set. This is a good deal considering the players can finish the mission and earn their reward sooner “any time.”
Battletoads is launching itself on Xbox Game Pass. This means the subscribers don’t require purchasing it separately, though that does mean that everyone else will have to pay up for the individual gear cosmetics.
Sea of Thieves With Battleads
The Battletoads ship collection includes themed sails, cannons, capstan, figureheads, flags, hulls, and wheels. There are features in the game that may affect the ship very green, but it’ll be the opponents who will turn green with jealousy when they see the three giant toads clinging to the front of the ship.
This surely isn’t the first time Microsoft is bringing one of its studio’s IPs into the magnificent seafront. Its most recent example has been the State of Decay ship set, which is Halo-inspired and Gears 5-inspired Sea of Thieves ship sets.
