At last month’s E3, Rare Ltd gave players a tease of the upcoming Sea of Thieves content updates that they have planned for the winter. Today, the team announced that the first of these winter updates – Cursed Sails – will be available for free to all Sea of Thieves players from July 31.
New Content To Include Skeleton Ship AI Enemies and the Brigantine Ship Designed For Three-Player Crews
As part of an ongoing commitment to deliver new Sea of Thieves content throughout the year, Cursed Sails will offer the biggest update yet at no charge for those who own the game or access it through Xbox Game Pass. Players will now be able to battle terrifying new skeleton ships, set sail in the new three-player Brigantine ship and form Alliances with other players to take on bigger challenges and share greater rewards.
This permanent new content will be introduced into the game through a special time-limited campaign, Cursed Sails. Offering players a range of unique rewards, this three-week campaign will see skeleton ships terrorise outposts and challenge pirates to do battle on the seas. A story-driven side quest will also allow players to investigate the source of the skeleton scourge. For a taste of what’s to come, watch the new below:
This Cursed Sails campaign and content update will be available free and without charge to all Sea of Thieves players who have bought the game across the Xbox One family of devices or on Windows 10 PC, or who have access to it as part of Xbox Game Pass. Once it goes live from July 31, simply download and install the latest Sea of Thieves update to get access. And don’t worry, if you’re unable to take part in the time-limited campaign, all the features introduced with this campaign will remain in the Sea of Thieves world for everyone to see and experience.
