Fear and dread settle over the Sea of Thieves this month as old enemies return through the cracks between worlds: the Shadows of Fate are loose once again, and a certain Skeleton Lord is proving impossible to bury once and for all!

Larinna is investigating and has Voyages that’ll send you in search of missing Bilge Rat crews, so be sure to read the Mysterious Notes she sends your way and check in with her at the tavern. She knows where the hostile hotspots are, so you can decide whether to make a beeline for them or pursue your own business in a quieter part of the world…

For full details of everything in the Fate of the Damned update, take a look through the release notes.


A range of stirring Soulflame gear can be earned by taking part in the Fated Fortune Event introduced as part of this update. Keep track of the individual Goals grouped into sets of Challenges, and as you cleave your way through Shadows of Fate you’ll soon be on the way to earning prizes including the exclusive Soulflame Crew Set and weapons.

Week by week, the Shadows of Fate are destined to spread like a plague through the regions of the world. Gather the coloured Flames of Fate to make them vulnerable to your attacks, take them down and reap the rewards!
