A new limited adventure is coming to Sea of Thieves! Mentioned by the website, the adventure is described as follow:

“Rally your allies: it’s time to take the fight to the Dark Brethren and help bring home a celebrated Hunter in Sea of Thieves’ sixth time-limited Adventure! Venturing into the Sea of the Damned is a risky undertaking even without a band of renegades lying in wait…”

  • As Captains set sail in a new gameplay session, they will now find that the ship’s history in the Captain’s Logbook shows correct values for Gold Earned, Islands Visited and Nautical Miles Sailed.
  • Players who experience an unsuccessful ship purchase will no longer be returned to the Ship Type selection screen.
  • Captains can now consistently discard Voyages from the Captain’s Bookshelf.
  • Sybil the shipwright at the Glorious Sea Dog Tavern now asks Captains to wait after purchasing supplies before additional items are offered.

Insider Rewards

  • Insiders who are eligible for the Sapphire Blade Sails will now find them in the Ship Customisation Chest.
