Rare has copied Bungie’s homework for Sea of Thieves Season 6 – and it’s working

Rare is once again doing cool new stuff with Sea of Thieves, but I think I might know who inspired the studio to do it. It’s been just over a year since Rare started formalising new content drops in Sea of Thieves as ‘seasons’. Each one of these timed periods lasts around three months and typically introduces a new type of voyage or activity, and includes a battle pass-style progression system where you can earn extra rewards by completing specific bonus objectives and earning ‘Renown’ – resulting in any decent session bumping you up a level or two by the…

Walking the Gank: Examining Sea of Thieves’ on-going identity crisis

2022 will be a big year for Rare’s pirate simulator, Sea of Thieves – but how does the game look, from a long-time player’s perspective, after 4 years at sea? Rare’s “what if pirates also enjoyed solving puzzles” thought-experiment Sea of Thieves is once again shaping up for a successful year. As if 2021’s introduction of Seasons with Battle Pass-esque cosmetic unlocks and a full narrative-focused Pirates of the Caribbean crossover wasn’t enough, Rare recently revealed that 2022 will see the addition of new, timed PvE events that contribute to an ongoing narrative, where the community’s actions can actually affect…

Sea of Thieves players will set sail on a new time-limited Adventure tomorrow

The next content update for Sea of Thieves will be a limited-time adventure. Called Shrouded Islands, the event runs from February 17 to March 3 and is the first in what’s to become a monthly thing that will carry the game’s ongoing narrative forward. In this adventure, Phantom pirates are running amok in the Sea of the Damned – the place you go to when you die aboard the Ferry of the Damned. And because of this, tensions are rising as various factions “ponder how they might make use of this power for their own ends.” One of the key…

Sea of Thieves Season 5 sets sail today

New adventures await on the high seas. Season 5 is now live for Sea of Thieves players and brings with it the new treasure burying option among other fun things such as rowboats equipped with cannons and helpful rats on ships. With the season, you are now able to put your shovels to use by burying treasure rather than unearthing it. After you bury it, you can make a map and either hold on to it or pin it to the Quest Board for others to find. Doing the latter will earn you both reputation and bonus Renown. Be aware…

Sea of Thieves Season 4 will send players under the sea

It’s better, down where it’s wetter. Sea of Thieves Season 4 starts next week, and it looks like players will venture under the sea once more. That’s going by what we gleaned from the short teaser trailer released today by Rare. The video shows a pirate waving to a passing ship, and the voice-over asking if you can “hear it calling to you.” It then goes on to speak of a “forgotten world of adventure,” and a “kingdom of riches beyond compare,” before stating “it waits for you.” Then, the video zooms in, goes under the waves, and you get…

Sea Of Thieves’ A Pirate’s Life expansion does feature lots of things that aren’t Johnny Depp

Bobbing onto our screens in 2018, Sea Of Thieves was perfectly timed to provide the jovial, ultimately unthreatening ambience of Pirates Of The Caribbean, just as that film series became a lot less fun due to the allegations against leading man Johnny Depp. How unfortunate, then, that 2021 should bring a massive Pirates Of The Caribbean crossover to the game, with Captain Jack Sparrow plastered all over it.
