In Sea Of Thieves, bananas heal players upon consumption.

But in real life, they could make you very, very rich.

To celebrate the upcoming launch of Sea Of Thieves, XBox is challenging crews worldwide to join a high-stakes digital scavenger hunt

The Quest for the Golden Bananas begins on 19 March at 8am GMT, and will feature 15 cryptic clues released over three days.

The final clue will be released on 21 March at 9pm GMT, when teams can submit all of their answers.

So what are these golden bananas at the end of the quest worth?

Oh, just a casual £80,000.

The bananas, handcrafted by Smith & Harris of Hatton Garden, are said to be worth £20,000 each, meaning the set of four available will set you up nicely for a holiday this summer.

The fastest and most accurate answers submitted will be put through to the grand final which will take place on 22 and 23 March (timezone dependent) and will award the golden bananas to one lucky crew.

Meanwhile, runners-up will get special dabloons worth £300 each. Not bad.

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.

The first ever open Beta for Sea Of Thieves is available until 10am on 11 March, with the game currently available to preorder.
