Microsoft’s Inside Xbox series returned this afternoon and with it came a ton of news about upcoming games like Sea of Thieves and Far Cry 5.

Rare’s Sea of Thieves was the main title talked about over the course of the show as its release is coming up on March 20. Xbox’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb talked to some of the developers at Rare about the pirate title and touched on topics related to the game’s music, cross-play between PC and Xbox One, and how the team developed the expansive open world.

While a vast majority of the show centered on Sea of Thieves, plenty of other titles were shown off as well. One segment featured Major Nelson at a recent Far Cry 5 event talking to some of the developers from Ubisoft about the game’s villain Father Joseph Seed.

Another conversation focused on PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and its current success as an early access title on Xbox One. We also learned that the Xbox One version of PUBG will be receiving test servers later this Spring.

One other footnote during the show also revealed that Cities: Skylines will soon be coming to the Xbox Game Pass program next month. This isn’t the only title that will be joining the service in April but the other games were not detailed just yet.

The show is about two hours long in total so feel free to skim through and find the segments about the games that you specifically are interested in. As for April’s edition of Inside Xbox, Major Nelson says they will reveal further details about it in the coming weeks.
