New Events, ways to play and rewards are all coming with the release of Season Two, available now as a free update for all players on Steam. Season Two comes free of charge to all players including 100 levels of rewards to be earned, with a purchasable Plunder Pass also available to boost the pool with additional premium rewards. As in the previous Season, you work your way up through the levels by living the pirate life, achieving things in your own way and steadily increasing your Renown. You can gain extra Renown by completing Trials: themed sets of Deeds that cover almost every imaginable action in Sea of Thieves, refreshed for Season Two! Season Two Showcase The Forts of Fortune have arrived, marked by an ominous new form of Skull Cloud looming in the skies over the Sea of Thieves. These encounters provide an even more rigorous challenge than other Skeleton Forts, with extra explosive potential and ever fiercer foes as the waves of resistance keep coming. Guaranteed Athena’s Treasures and other high-level loot await any crews who can conquer this gauntlet. If you fancy your chances against the undead hordes, keep an eye (and ear) out for the tell-tale signs of this rare encounter emerging as you sail! Should you prefer trade to battle, Season Two also brings in new Merchant Alliance Trade Routes. Emissaries can earn their fortune by buying Commodity Crates as cheaply as possible at Outposts, then selling them at another Outpost where those Commodities are highly sought-after. The Merchant Alliance now sell Resource Crates too, so stocking up on bananas, wooden planks and cannonballs has never been easier! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/37295600/e393c7ba37f4968c8b98bc6a1a3bd58eb4f32080.jpg To attract more pirates to their cause, the Trading Companies are rolling out brand new rewards for those Emissaries who place highly in their Emissary Ledgers. Not an Emissary yet? They’ll send out a Mysterious Note when you’re eligible to purchase their Emissary Licence and set sail under their Flag. All this along with Season Two’s dramatic time-limited Event, Reapers vs. the World – pitting The Reaper’s Bones against the other Trading Companies in an epic game of Emissary cat and mouse – and more Twitch Drops on the horizon from our Sea of Thieves Partnered streamers! Pirate Emporium Plunder With a new Season comes a new Plunder Pass, packed with Pirate Emporium items to boost the pool of rewards available via Seasonal progression. Picking up the Plunder Pass adds these premium items to the obtainable rewards for Season Two, including unreleased items like the Black Phoenix Figurehead, Sails and Flag, along with the Popcorn and Backflip emotes. For those looking to hit level 100 this Season, the Plunder Pass is an enticing accoutrement to your adventures! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/37295600/6d0e68ce5d46fff09b546654c59f2586ac7556fb.jpg Also new to the Pirate Emporium this ...Steam Global Top Sellers for the Week ending 11 April 2021Apr 10, 2021 - SteamDB * OUTRIDERS; * It Takes Two; * Forza Horizon 4; * Sea of Thieves; * Horizon Zero Dawn™ Complete Edition; * Halo: The Master Chief Collection; * Valheim; * Valve Index VR Kit; * Euro Truck Simulator 2 - Iberia; * The Binding of Isaac: Repentance; View more information and data on SteamDBSea of Thieves Sale April 8th-12thApr 8, 2021 - Community Announcements{STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/37295600/6e3107a9a49078bb32be6ec7c0ec8284aa54b830.jpg Sea of Thieves is 50% off on Steam from April 8 to 12, and players who purchase the Sea of Thieves: Animal Arsenal Edition will receive a pack of goodies to help them get started on their pirate adventure.

There's not a lot to report on Season 2 just yet, but - barring minor tweaks to the formula - it should continue the template established by Sea of Thieves' current, inaugural season, offering a three-month-long schedule of content updates and events, built around a fresh battle pass. Expect another 100 levels of rewards in the free tier - progressed through by completing various activities while out on the ocean - plus a small selection of Pirate Emporium goodies and exclusive cosmetics that can be unlocked by purchasing the paid Plunder Pass.

New Voyages, Events, rewards and ways to play are all packed into Season One, available as a free download today for all players on Steam. As with all of our previous content updates, Season One – including all 100 levels of rewards – comes free of charge to all players, with the brand-new Plunder Pass available for additional purchase to gain early access to premium rewards. You can read more about the introduction of Seasons and the Plunder Pass in more detail below, but we’re delighted that all pirates will be able to play everything a Season brings regardless of whether or not they pick up the Pass! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/37295600/280676752327e0e22e91e3062acedc65414f6f5c.jpg Season One Showcase Seasons in Sea of Thieves are, designed to run for around three months at a time, and bring a brand-new layer of progression to the game. Making your way up through each of the 100 levels in Season One will unlock a reward each time, from gold and Doubloons to cosmetics and even Ancient Coins to spend on goods in the Pirate Emporium! Ascend through the levels by increasing your Renown, which can be done naturally by sailing the seas and doing all the things you’d normally do. Renown is designed to ensure you won’t walk away from a session empty-handed, as you’re constantly being rewarded for play rather than being dependent on cashing in loot. You can also raise your Renown in leaps and bounds by completing Trials: themed sets of Deeds that cover almost every available activity in Sea of Thieves, from visiting every island in a region of the world to vanquishing Ashen Lords and sea monsters. So whether you prefer to casually earn Renown naturally throughout your adventures or seek it out through Trials, progression in Seasons adapts to fit your playstyle. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/37295600/2b77a6dd303afa75d374fb5367287bc9d4baaec6.jpg Season One also launches with Lost Shipment Voyages, a new way to engage with the Merchant Alliance. These Voyages turn you into a seabound detective, seeking clues to precious deliveries that went down with the ship out there somewhere along the trade routes. Retrieve the Cargo Manifests to earn Merchant Alliance rewards and reputation, but find the key to the Captain’s cabin and you can also recover treasures from these written-off wrecks! If you enjoy these new undersea undertakings, don’t worry: Lost Shipment Voyages are set to remain in the game as a permanent feature. With all this plus Season One’s first time-limited Event – taking down undead marauders for their Soul Fragments, securing the Order of Souls weapon set in the process – and more Twitch Drops treasures on tap from Sea of Thieves Partnered streamers, our latest content update delivers an enormous number of new gameplay opportunities that players can pick and choose from as they see fit. Pirate Emporium Plunder Meanwhile, one of the Emporium’s headline items to accompany...Rare gives detailed breakdown of Sea of Thieves' new Seasons updates and battle passJan 26, 2021 - EurogamerSea of Thieves is launching its new seasonal content schedule and battle-pass-style progression system this Thursday, 28th January, and, in preparation, Rare has served up a handily informative breakdown of everything in store, hopefully answering any lingering questions pirates may have before raising anchor and setting sail later this week. Each season will last approximately three months, and each will begin by introducing a fresh dollop of content (in Thursday's case, a new voyage-type for the much-maligned Merchant Alliance), ongoing live events, and most notably, a new 100-level progression system. Rare says Sea of Thieves' new three-month content release schedule will allow it to "craft more meaningful experiences...and return to a more predictable rhythm of release." However, it also notes the game will continue to receive smaller monthly updates, delivering bug fixes, quality of life improvements, and new stock for the Pirate Emporium. Read more Sea of Thieves Plunder Pass introduces game's take on a seasonal battle passJan 26, 2021 - ShacknewsAs Sea of Thieves has continued to get better and better over the years, there has been no lack of adventure to explore, but it was a little sporadic. Coming in 2021, Rare is preparing to organize its content updates into seasons, the first of which is right around the corner this late January 2021. With it comes another staple of similarly season-arranged games: A battle pass of sorts. Sea of Thieves is getting what it calls a “Plunder Pass” to offer players an optional premium track of rewards to collect in the new season. Rare recently announced and explained the concept of the Sea of Thieves Plunder Pass in a blog post on the game’s website. The Plunder Pass can be bought with 999 Ancient Coins, which can either be earned in game by defeating Ancient Rare Skeletons found in your adventures or purchased through the Pirate Emporium or Microsoft Store. Much like other battle pass offerings, it will feature a 100-level track of rewards for players to earn, featuring items and cosmetics that will be available early with the pass. Instead of making items and rewards truly exclusive to the Plunder Pass, Rare is simply offering items that Plunder Pass owners can own early access to where others might have to wait to get their hands on them later. Despite being mostly similar to other battle pass set-ups, Rare promises that the Plunder Pass will never bar the player from seasonal content in the game, the first season of which is coming on January 28, 2021. The Plunder Pass will launch at the same time, but it’s entirely an optional feature. Even so, seasons and the Plunder Pass mark an interesting turn in content organization for Sea of Thieves coming into 2021. We’ve seen plenty of cool additions to the game including pets like good doggos, Tall Tale adventures, and the ongoing development of custom servers. With the launch of seasons and the Plunder Pass in Sea of Thieves, get ready for a new and exciting era of the game. We’ll share more updates as Season One goes live pretty shortly. Sea of Thieves' inaugural battle pass season launches next weekJan 21, 2021 - EurogamerSea of Thieves' previously revealed battle pass will launch its first season of player progression and rewards next Thursday, 28th January. The battle pass - intended to offer a "tangible sense of progress", even when engaging in shorter sessions according to Rare - will feature 100 progress levels (with associated seasonal rewards) that can be unlocked through exploration, adventuring, and combat. There's also talk of pirate trials "that celebrate...existing content and encourage you to play in new ways". Notably, this new seasonal model also marks a shift in development strategy for the multiplayer pirate game. Instead of delivering new content on a monthly basis, as it did previously, Rare will now release new features every three months, at the start of each new season.

Scores of skeletons smashed. More bunches of bananas cronched than we can possibly count – it’s been a wild ride across the waves in the 1000 days since Sea of Thieves hit shelves and storefronts for players around the world to enjoy! Here’s a small selection of the many and varied ways in which pirates have spent their time upon the seas: {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/37295600/f85bf4c00d1b39ec3865b280a69a89c771df9b82.jpg Naturally, we weren’t about to let such a marauder’s milestone pass without using it as an excuse for a good time and a few giveaways. Let’s begin with the game itself: as Sea of Thieves’ 1000th day falls on December 14th 2020, any players who log in and play between December 13th and December 16th (10:00 UTC) will receive a commemorative 1000 Days Eyepatch emblazoned with a red Roman numeral ‘M’. (Who says pirates have no appreciation for history?) And players who’ve been with us from the beginning will receive a very distinguished golden ‘M’ edition eyepatch, to thank them for being loyal looters since the start. The red eyepatch will be delivered to players within 72 hours of logging in, while the golden version will arrive next week after the window has closed and eligible pirates have been identified! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/37295600/6b73ff39a0b3e9be7070eafdf4468a4baa5e29d9.jpg And that’s not all we have to announce… you asked, we listened, and the Sea of Thieves: Athena’s Fortune novel is getting its very own audio book treatment! Read by accomplished actor Toby Stephens (Black Sails, Lost in Space) and making full use of music and effects taken from the game, Athena’s Fortune chronicles the intertwined origins of the infamous Pirate Lord and Bilge Rat leader Larinna, who’s recently become well-known to players by taking up her in-game post outside the tavern. We know a lot of fans old and new have been requesting a spoken rendition of this Tallest of Tales, so it’s a great pleasure for us to announce the enhanced, unabridged Athena’s Fortune adaptation on our 1000-day milestone. It’ll be available to stream and download early next year, free of charge on selected services. Until then, you can feast your eyes upon a sample of the audio book’s snazzy cover artwork, created by artist Iolanda Zanfardino, at the top of this post. Speaking of Athena’s Fortune, that legendary Galleon’s golden nameplate is one of many new treasures now available to pre-order from the Rare Store – an ideal way to transform any home into your very own Tavern of Legends and stay safe and warm during the winter months! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/37295600/6e9807b5ed20b496529138dfde8b17ba945c2d9e.jpg We’ve also added a trove of new games and puzzles to keep you entertained, including official Sea of Thieves Top Trumps, an ocean battle jigsaw and the very exciting Sea of Thieves X Monopoly Limited Edition, which sees the classic game lovingly wrapped up in familiar Sea of Thieves locations and adventures.
