Sea of Thieves’ July 31 Cursed Sails update adds creepy skeleton ghost ships and a three-man vessel

Who doesn’t love a good ghost ship story? I’m a sucker for them, so Sea of Thieves’ Cursed Sails, the game’s second major update, definitely has my eye. According to the new trailer and blog post, players are getting that promised new ship, some new story lore, and the three-man Brigantine, along with the hinted-at multi-boat alliance system and the NPC skeleton ships that will be popping out of the sea to wallop your crew as the “emergent threat” they are. Nothing like watching a ship helmed by skellies literally dive into the depths and drag everything with it. Reddit is freaking out (in a good way) over the crab sighting too.

“Cursed Sails will change things forever on the Sea of Thieves, as the sails you see cresting the horizon are no longer guaranteed to be other players making their own way through the world. The decks beneath those masts may now be manned by skeletal marauders returned to the seas from their restless graves. All that sustains these grinning terrors is a thirst for battle that leads them to terrorise Outposts and call out defenders to face them on the tides…”

The update launches on July 31st; you can watch the preview trailer down below. Arrr!

Sounds promising potentially, though after the Hungering Deep it’s one of those things where I don’t expect anything beyond what they actually show/say.

as jose and creub have finally joined me and burgertron in the game, i’m super excited for this update as well as checking out in particular the 3man brigantine which may fill a critical role in easing some of the tendinciy to go afk between islands due to not much needing to do on the sloop (i’ve been doing the piloting instead often times lately on the sloop but burger is so much of abetter pilot and me the better gunner that it ends up working against us – which is fine, we both like switchign it up in pvp who guns and who pilots.)
