  • Athena's Fortune Contest


    To celebrate the launch of our lore-expanding novel Athena’s Fortune, in true Sea of Thieves spirit, we wanted to squeeze in a cheeky contest. We know that your pirates and their crews have a tale or two to tell from adventures out on the seas, so now’s your chance to tell them!

    What we're asking for
    From January 28th to February 4th, we want you to submit Sea of Thieves fan art!

    Why are we looking for fan art, we hear you ask? Well, we're aiming to put together a very special physical book comprised of short stories (all non-canon of course) that tell tales of our community’s time at sea – and a community-led book wouldn't be complete without some awesome artwork, right? Yes, your fan art could feature in a Sea of Thieves book that we're calling… Mariners’ Myths!


    We’ve already selected the short stories but are re-opening the contest for fan art entries for an additional week!

    We have quite the bounty up for grabs in this competition. The winning artist will take home the same haul, with their art featured on the front cover of Mariners’ Myths. Not bad, eh?


    The Rules
    Members of the Sea of Thieves team will be judging your written and artistic submissions based on the following criteria: Creativity and Originality.

    There are a few rules you must stick to for this competition:
    Submission must be family-friendly.

    1. Submission must be family-friendly.
      Your art submissions should also be free from bad language and sexual content.

    2. Submissions must have been created by you.
      Please only submit pieces of work that you yourself have created.


    The Prizes
    There will be one main prize winner from the fan art submission pool. This main prize includes the Athena's Fortune novel signed by Chris Allcock, a Sea of Thieves Limited Edition Controller, 20 Bilge Rat Doubloons, your artwork included in Mariners’ Myths and a copy for yourself.

    There will be two runner-up prize winners from the fan art submission pool. This runner-up prize includes the Athena's Fortune novel signed by Chris Allcock, 10 Bilge Rat Doubloons and a copy of Mariners’ Myths.


    How to Enter
    Fan art: Tweet your submission to us on Twitter, post it on Instagram or leave it on our Facebook wall. Include the hashtag #AthenasFortuneContest to ensure we see it.


    The winners for the short story contest have already been selected. We will contact winners and runners-up on February 8th and announce winners of both short stories and fan art on our social channels and website on February 13th.

    This extension of the fan art contest opens at 00:01 GMT on January 28th 2019 and closes at 23:59 GMT on February 4th 2019 (the “Entry Period”). Entries received outside of the Entry Period will not be considered. Click here for full Terms & Conditions.

    Good luck, pirates!

  • Ahoy there fellow Pirates & Happy Valentine's Day,

    With love in the air there's a slight change in today's giveaway, not only will the winner receive a Limited Edition Valentines T-Shirt but they will also receive a second Limited Edition Valentines T-Shirt to give to their Valentine.

    Limited Edition Valentines T-Shirt

    So don't be like all those other landlubbers with their roses, give that special pirate something they actually want.


    To be in with a chance of winning, just reply to this thread telling us what island in Sea of Thieves you would take your Valentine to and why?

    We'll pick the lucky winner at random and announce them here at 4pm GMT tomorrow.

    Good luck!

    Why are we looking for stories and fan art, we hear you ask?

  • A mysterious fog has come to the Sea of Thieves with our latest free content update: Shrouded Spoils! But that's not all this update brings with it. As well as navigating this new emergent threat, you and your crew will have to face off against feistier Krakens, fearsome new Megalodons unleashed in the wake of The Hungering One, six freshly infested Skeleton Forts and, of course, you'll need to be on the lookout for roaming Skeleton Ships.

    But with new dangers come new rewards! Magic-infused gemstones, extended ship customisation and spoils to be won in Kraken and Megalodon battles.

    We don't know about you, but to us this sounds like the perfect opportunity to get out there and create some incredible Sea of Thieves content. Sound good? Excellent!

    Shrouded Spoils Creator Contest

    From December 5th 2018 to January 2nd 2019, we want to see your best Shrouded Spoils-related content!

    The winning entries will uncover a treasure trove of loot. Our top two picks will receive a Sea of Thieves Limited Edition Controller, Shrouded Spoils T-shirt, 30 Bilge Rat Doubloons and an Ebon Flintlock Pistol for your pirate!

    Three runners-up will receive a Shrouded Spoils T-shirt, Sea of Thieves Journal, 15 Bilge Rat Doubloons and an Ebon Flintlock Pistol!

    We'll be looking for submissions in the following categories:

    • Best Shrouded Spoils Video - We want to see your best video clips from Shrouded Spoils! With the treacherous fog rolling into the Sea of Thieves, we’d love to see familiar islands in a new light or unexpected encounters in the fog. We’re also keen to see crews taking on newly populated Skeleton Forts or previously unseen Megalodons for their rich rewards.
    • Best Shrouded Spoils Fan Creation - Has Shrouded Spoils inspired you to get creative? Perhaps the array of Megalodon patterning has made you feel like breaking out the paints, or you’d like to recreate some of the new spoils such as the Mermaid Statue Gems or super new Stronghold Gunpowder Barrel? Don’t keep your talents hidden under a shroud!
