It’s time once more for the buccaneers of Sea of Thieves to get their news in video form. That’s right, it’s time for another news bulletin video, which offers word of several things arriving to the piratical sandbox over the course of this month.

First off, the game’s next update is due to arrive on March 18th, bringing some new items to the Pirate Emporium like the Sea of Sands ship set, weapons, and costumes, as well as some new pets. The update will also bring a free emote for everyone and some new Dark Adventurer goodies for Pirate Legends. This update, incidentally, will be the last one before the game launches its next season.

After that on March 20th, Sea of Thieves will be celebrating its third anniversary with some free sails for those who login between March 18th and 25th, an additional emote reward for Xbox Game Pass subscribers who login between March 18th and 21st, and some limited edition t-shirts available at the Rare Games Store for those who want to celebrate in real life. March 18th will also mark the first issue of a free comic miniseries that recounts the tale of Sir Arthur Pendragon and his rise as the Champion of Souls.

Finally, there will be a Vault Raiders event running between March 25th and April 15th, with a new Gold Hoarders weapon set up for grabs for players who take part, and one last set of Season 1 Twitch Drops available between March 19th and 23rd.

A game I’ve tried to love for years cos it has a LOT going for it, but once you strip everything away it’s a gank box, pure and simple. Unless you really enjoy being killed repeatedly by people just because they can, rather than for any other reason, have at it. Would be fantastic with a PvE server.

Yep unfortunately. They really need PvE or private servers that let you just enjoy the game without PvP. But they’re probably afraid of doing that because they use PvP to pad the content and they know too many folks would likely stop giving PvPers content. Plus they have a vocal PvP community that whined about Alliances for the longest time.

Agree, like all PvP games they want to funnel as many uninterested targets in front of the PvP nut cases. Who then go on a slaughter rampage and think they’re amazing when all they were doing was killing people who had absolutely no interest in fighting and, to be honest, find PvP just a bit lame.
