Game studio Rare has officially revealed Season 2 of popular video game Sea of Thieves and it could just open a whole new world to its fans.
Season 2 offers a lot of new events, ways to play, and rewards for players to discover and encounter. This is now available to download in a free update for everyone with Xbox Game Pass and across Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.
Season 2 comes free of charge to all players including 100 levels of rewards to be earned. There is also a purchasable Plunder Pass that can boost the pool with additional premium rewards. Just like the previous one, players will need to earn their way up through the levels and increasing their Renown. Gaining it can be done by completing trials, which are themed sets of Deeds.
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!
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 License 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!
Also new to the Pirate Emporium this month: the opportunity to strike fear into all who sail the Sea of Thieves with the Dark Warsmith collection, comprising a full ship set, a terrifying all-in-one pirate costume and a bundle of red-hot weaponry. Players who want to show off their skills with a blade can do so with the new Dagger Tricks Emote Bundle, but remember – our pirates are trained professionals, don’t try this at home!
Sea of Thieves is now available on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
