Ahoy, dear readers! Hoist the mainsail, haul in the anchor and join us as we set sail for the golden shores of Xbox island, a tropical paradise where both coconuts and console exclusives are in bountiful supply. And the first stop on our swashbuckling voyage is naturally Sea Of Thieves, the piratical playground from legendary developer Rare. Gather your crew, sink some rum and then chart a course for our gorgeous eight-page rundown.

But Rare's grog-fuelled epic is by no means the only reason for Xbox owners to sing shanties of joy right now. That's because we've put together a comprehensive collection of all the Xbox exclusives coming soon to a console near you, including the latest info on urban destruction simulator Crackdown 3 and sprawling zombie sandbox State Of Decay 2. All that, plus a raft of indie delights you won't be able to play anywhere else.

Our Reviews section is similarly splendid this month, and BioWare's science-fiction spacetravaganza Mass Effect: Andromeda leads the way. We've explored every planet, polished off quest and smooched a whole lot of aliens in order to bring you our definitive verdict on this eagerly-anticipating role-playing spectacular. That's not all, though – we've also travelled deep into the Bolivian badlands to hand down our judgement on Ghost Recon Wildlands.

Our extraordinary Extra section is next, and to celebrate 15 years of Xbox history, we've put together an extra-special Retrospective charting the development and launch of Microsoft's first ever console. And, with Andromeda taking the series forward into an entire new galaxy of adventure, we've gone back to where it all began – Mass Effect 1 – to see how Shepard's debut holds up. Last, but not least, there's our list of the 15 greatest character creators in Xbox history, which turned out to be a lot more psychologically scarring than we'd anticipated. Which game lets you make the most frightening mug? Pick up this month's edition of Official Xbox Magazine to find out!
