Tue. March 13th, 2018 - by Jessica Donnel

THE WORLD - Have you ever dreamed of sailing across the seven seas in search of buried treasure? Then this challenge, in celebration of next week’s launch of Sea of Thieves, which employs bananas as a healing item, is for you. In celebration of the upcoming launch, Rare, a video game developer, and Microsoft are encouraging players to live action role play (LARP) in the most realistic game of their lives—a real-life treasure hunt for some real-life golden bananas, according to tech news source Kotaku.

The produce staple stars—in 18-carat gold with a $27,970.80 price tag—as the bounty for the three day, fifteen riddle, online and real-world treasure hunt. The hunt begins at 7 a.m. AEDT on March 18th through a passage on the company’s promotional website.

Grab two friends and join together to be the first crew in your region to solve the riddles by the time the final riddle drops on March 22nd, and you’ll be in the running for the grand prize. Clues will be hidden in Sydney, Berlin, Paris, London, Florida, and Victoria. Keep your eyes peeled for clues through Xbox and Rare social media.
