The Excitement Never Ends

The Excitement
Never Ends

Every Sea of Thieves session is unpredictable. Even a simple Voyage to a tranquil island can unfold into a skeleton ambush, a pitched battle against a fleet of Ghost Ships or a daring chase in pursuit of pirates making off with your plunder!

Your Quest


Voyages offer varied expeditions in search of glory and rewards. Whether you’re trekking through caves, hunting Ashen Skeletons in The Devil’s Roar or dodging sharks to reach a sunken ship, conquering Voyages will set you on the path to Pirate Legend.

Expect The Unexpected

The ever-changing world of Sea of Thieves can catch even experienced pirates off-guard. Even a quick trip to an Outpost for supplies can be made chaotic and challenging if a storm rolls in or another crew joins the fun. Always be on your guard! 

Intense Sea Combat

A pirate’s ship is their home away from home, and you’ll need to defend yours! Learning to master your cannons, harpoons and sails can give you the edge in battle and prove the difference between triumph and sinking helplessly beneath the waves.

Hone your tactics on Skeleton Ships and Ghost Fleets, experimenting with Cursed Cannonballs, mast-snapping chainshot and more. Then seek crews to fight in the open world or by using the Hourglass of Fate to dive to a nail-biting Faction battle!

Raiding, Pirate Style

You won’t always need a set goal to find excitement. Unpredictable World Events, often heralded by strange clouds, can pit you against the likes of Ashen Lords and Sea Fort infestations, and can even be initiated as Raid Voyages from your Quest Table…

Battle Other Players

Whether it’s tussling over treasure or keeping your ship’s supplies safe from rival pirates, the time will come when you’ll want to take up arms against other players. You may clash by chance on the open seas, or side with a Faction and join the Battle for the Sea of Thieves. Pirates who fall in battle can be revived or will return to the seas before long via the Ferry of the Damned, so there’s no need to shy away from a good brawl. Don’t forget to use all the weapons in your arsenal, whether it’s taking aim with a pistol or flinging firebombs from afar!

Master Your Weapons

With so much action unfolding, it’s unwise to set out unarmed. Pirates always have access to a cutlass and range of firearms for any situation, and can carry two at once. Throw in consumable weapons like firebombs, and any fight becomes manageable!
