The four bananas have been forged by celebrated London goldsmiths Smith & Harris, the duo responsible for the so-called Kate Moss Siren. The bananas are valued at £20,000 per banana - a loot worthy of even the most discerning of treasure hunters.

The Quest For The Golden Bananas begins 7:00PM AEDT on March 19, where clues will be revealed every 3-4 hours for three days. On Wednesday, March 21 at 13:00 PT / 21:00 GMT / 07:00 AEDT (Thursday, March 22) each team will be able to input the answers to those 15 riddles at

When you have filled in all 15 answers in the Passage, submit your crew's entry.

Then on March 23, the fastest team to solve the riddles from each country will be entered into "the grand final", with one lucky crew winning the golden fruits that are valued at £20,000 (~$27,500) each.

First announced on the premiere episode of Inside Xbox, the Quest for the Golden Bananas is essentially a digital treasure hunt which will see teams from across six countries (UK, US, Canada, Australia, France and Germany) compete for a prize of four golden bananas worth £80,000 in total. As stated in the announcement, "should you find yourself marooned elsewhere, these clues will also be scattered digitally as well".

Will you be getting a crew together?

You can, of course, attempt to go it alone with this quest but we've been informed these riddles won't be easy work.

For those that haven't been following Sea of Thieves' development, the banana theme isn't quite as random as it might first appear; in-game, bananas are now the only item that can restore health, so have a kind of skewed prominence during your swashbuckling escapades.
