Sea of Thieves Season Ten Overview Trailer

기간 1:12

Safer Seas

Following Guilds and the Skull of Siren Song Voyage comes Season Ten's third major feature update: Safer Seas, a new mode that offers a way to find your sea legs, immerse yourself in adventure and explore the world as you like with no other player crews present. Available now!

Welcome to Safer Seas

  • Whenever you play, you can now choose to play on either Safer Seas, which gives you a private world in which to sail solo or with your own crew, or on High Seas, the traditional Sea of Thieves experience with other roaming player crews added to the mix.

  • Safer Seas mode allows access to the vast majority of content in the game, including all our story-driven Tall Tales. Notable exceptions are PvP-focused elements such as The Reaper’s Bones and Faction battles.

  • To balance the reduction in risk from the absence of other players, gold and reputation are earned more slowly on Safer Seas, and Trading Company rank is capped at 40. Pirate Legends are only forged on High Seas!

  • To learn more about Safer Seas, head to our dedicated Season Ten page or check out the official Safer Seas Explained video.
