Hilarious Tall Tales

The Legend of Monkey Island is told across three of Sea of Thieves’ narrative-focused Tall Tales, free for all players to enjoy.

Visit iconic locations and meet familiar faces from the Monkey Island series as you set sail in search of Guybrush Threepwood, go head-to-head with the ghost pirate Captain LeChuck and break a devious curse that has ensnared Mêlée Island.

Tale 1 – ‘The Journey to Mêlée Island’

An ambitious new arrival at the Outposts is seeking help to hunt down Guybrush Threepwood, who disappeared while sailing to the Sea of Thieves. Via the Sea of the Damned, you’ll journey to the fabled Mêlée Island, where Guybrush is now revered as a legendary pirate of unparalleled talents. Clearly, something is very wrong…

Tale 2 – ‘The Quest for Guybrush’

Guybrush has been imprisoned in a dream-world by his old nemesis, LeChuck, and now believes himself to be the mightiest pirate who ever cruised the Caribbean. The only way for crews to convince him otherwise is to undertake three legendary trials spread far and wide across Mêlée Island. If you don’t succeed, Guybrush may never be freed…

Tale 3 – ‘The Lair of LeChuck’

The time has come to journey with Guybrush to the scenic, secretive Monkey Island, where a final showdown with LeChuck awaits you in a pirate lair deep underground. But first, there’s the little matter of getting inside… Unravel the mysteries of Monkey Island with Guybrush at your side in the final chapter of this Tall Tale trilogy!

A Living Legend

Your voyage to Mêlée Island will carry you on a quest to locate Guybrush Threepwood, last seen setting course for the Sea of Thieves. Guybrush now believes himself to be the mightiest pirate who ever lived – and everyone else seems to be labouring under this mysterious misconception too. It may take some convincing before Governor Guybrush sees the truth, assuming you’re even granted an audience…

An Uproarious New Journey

Sea of Thieves crews may think they’re used to unusual goings-on, but a trip to Mêlée Island will soon grant them a whole new perspective on piracy. Eccentric locals, shady business partners, surly chefs and surprisingly versatile rubber chickens are just a few of the treats ahead in this love letter to the iconic Monkey Island series.

Familiar Faces and Places

If you’ve ever dreamed of taking a seat in the Scumm Bar or browsing the offers at Stan’s Previously Owned Vessels, The Legend of Monkey Island gives you a chance to explore unforgettable locations via Sea of Thieves’ first-person view. Seek the wisdom of the Pirate Leaders, trade barbs with Murray the Demonic Talking Skull and discover classic vantage points to relive Guybrush’s memories of the past.

Surprises Await You

You’ll need more than the traditional pirate bag of tricks to succeed in saving Guybrush. Battle using Mojo-infused Root Beer, soar across the magnificent vistas of Mêlée Island using speedy ziplines and ready both a sharp blade and a sharp tongue as you master the art of Insult Sword Fighting. You may even need to take on a part-time job…

LeChuck Is Lurking

Guybrush’s old nemesis, the ghost pirate Captain LeChuck, is taking full advantage of his foe’s current predicament – and is keen to cause chaos across the Sea of Thieves now that he has the opportunity. A confrontation with LeChuck seems inevitable, but only Guybrush knows how to reach his foe’s pirate lair deep below Monkey Island.
