Microsoft’s beautiful open world pirate adventure, Sea Of Thieves, brings its newest content update for free on July 31st, but… what is it? Here at The Loot Gaming, we’ve got you covered.
Besides the threat of real-world players circling around the sea, players now must be cautious of pirate ships belonging to A.I. skeleton crews, the fleshless remains of former pirates who have come up from the depths of the sea in search for treasure. Your treasure. They are referred to as fortress-like ghost ships and will bring new challenges to the game, more importantly, it’ll offer more things to do and new experiences to enjoy.
In Rare’s blog post, they mentioned that they hope to terrorize Outposts and call out defenders to face them on the tides. This could mean that the semi-safe haven outposts where players turn in items for rewards may become even less safe and make players and their treasures even more vulnerable.
One of the bigger additions and one fans have been clamoring for, crews of three can now use a ship specifically designed for three players. Joining the largest Galleon and the smallest Sloop is the new mid-tier Brigantine. Joining this update is also an Alliance system set to encourage crews to willingly work together to get treasure and share rewards.
These constant updates will help this game in the long run, we loved the game but felt it’s severe lack of content hurt it. Also, keep in mind that these events bring timed rewards but the new pirate A.I. ships will remain a permanent fixture. It will also be available to those who play on Xbox Game Pass.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on the state of Sea Of Thieves and what you hope the future will bring for Rare’s open world pirate game.
