How to add friends in Sea of Thieves

How to invite friends on PlayStation

When you boot up Sea of Thieves on any system other than Xbox, you will be prompted to sign in or create a Microsoft account. This is free and only takes a moment, and will allow you to continue your progress if you ever want to play on Xbox or PC later.

Step 1: Create or sign in to your Microsoft account.

Step 2: Go through the linking process to connect your PSN account to your Microsoft account.

Step 3: You can now add Xbox and PC friends to your friends list.

Step 4: Once friends are added, they will show up in your normal PSN friends list while playing Sea of Theives.

Step 5: Select who you want to play with and choose Invite to Game to bring them into your server.

The process of inviting friends is almost identical on PC, but you will need to add friends via the Xbox app instead.
