Sea of Thieves is packed full of wonderful little surprises across its many oceans. From quests, to throwbacks to classic games - it's packed to the brim. The latest update, which introduces a Pirate's of the Caribbean crossover, also features another reference to a classic game.

Be warned: There's spoilers ahead.

Still with us? Okay cool. The Easter Egg was picked up by Kotaku, but we actually managed to stumble upon it ourselves whilst achievement hunting. It's not to hard to find and involves you using the lighthouse in the first mission of A Pirate's Life to light a hidden brazier. Once done, you'll be able to stumble into a shipwreck featuring a unique secret.

But what is it? Well, it's in fact a throwback to Monkey Island! It has Rare's own rendition of the theme tune, a decorated interior, and journals to find which reference the classic game. It's a fantastic addition and most likely the result of the Rare and Disney collaboration, since Disney effectively owns the IP since acquiring Lucasfilm.

If you want a full rundown on how to complete it, the video below will show you the way. We recommend using it to find the correct path, but then experiencing the Easter Egg for yourself. We'd love Monkey Island to be introduced as a fully-fledged crossover in the future. Maybe one day...
