Season One: Official Sea of Thieves Content Update

时长 2:44

In addition to the new Event we have another haul of Pirate Emporium treasures and assorted quality of life fixes to offer, so read on for the traditional bullet-pointed breakdown as Season One’s third and final month gets underway!

Game Events

For those seeking something a little more focused than the intentionally wide-ranging Trials, each Sea of Thieves Season brings fresh time-limited Events offering their own rewards. Find out about this month’s new arrival alongside some of your favourite recurring Events!

Pirate Emporium

The latest Emporium restock adds the Sea of Sands collection alongside the Reaper’s Mark Sails, back to celebrate our anniversary. There are Gold Curse pets, nutty emotes and plenty more to browse too, while the Plunder Pass stays in play for enriching Seasonal rewards!

Known Issues

Ranged and Melee Weapon Hit Detection

  • In areas of intense action, players may find themselves firing shots or landing strikes that do not cause damage to their targets. While improvements continue to be delivered during our content updates, this remains a key priority for the team.
