The exciting quest was announced on Inside XBox and is open for crews of up to four shipmates in the UK, Australia, France, the US, Germany and Canada. As stated in the announcement, "should you find yourself marooned elsewhere, these clues will also be scattered digitally as well".

If you're in the treasure hunting mood and want to participate, you can enter via xbox.com/thebananaquest. If you don't have the time to actually go there and solve the riddle, the developers will also release them in some digital form.

The quest is being run to celebrate the launch of Sea of Thieves, the multiplayer, pirate adventure game for Xbox and Windows 10 which is out on March 20. Just like in Sea of Thieves itself, then, it could very well be worth teaming up with a crew to make this a more manageable collaborative effort.
