Be More Pirate!
Sea of Thieves offers the essential pirate experience, packed to the seams with sailing and exploring, fighting and plundering, riddle solving and treasure hunting ? everything you need to live the pirate life you?ve always dreamed about. With no set roles, you have complete freedom to approach the world, and other players, however you choose.
As a shared-world adventure game, Sea of Thieves immerses you in a new type of multiplayer action. Whether you?re adventuring as a group or sailing solo, you?re bound to encounter other crews ? but will they be friends or foes, and how will you respond?
Reputation is everything on the high seas, and naturally, your aim is to become a pirate legend. How you choose to make your mark within the world is up to you, and your actions and adventures will ultimately shape the tales that others tell about you.
Death Sets Sail
Pirate dominion on the Sea of Thieves is being challenged? by the dead! Skeletons are taking to the waters in grim galleons, united and spurred on by an unknown force. Armed with cursed cannonballs that sow chaos and confusion, the dead make war on the living in Cursed Sails.
The skellies are calling you out, pirates. Answer the call with new ways to fight back, including an Alliance system that lets ships share voyages, experience and gold, plus the new mid-sized Brigantine ship for three-pirate crews. You?ll need every gun you can get for this one!
This free update debuts the daunting new skeleton ships in a time-limited campaign of battles across the Sea of Thieves, along with campaign-only rewards. Players can also take a break from the action to investigate the source of the skeleton scourge, following a tale of greed and madness. Once the bone dust settles, a host of new cosmetic items, the Brigantine, the Alliance system and the skeleton ships will then join the ongoing and expanding Sea of Thieves experience.
Load your cannons, eat your bananas and prepare for battle. The Sea of Thieves needs you!

Beware what lurks below?
Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the Sea of Thieves? suddenly the sharks are getting restless- and hungry. Pirates are reporting frequent attacks and a rise in the sale of peglegs. One drunken bard seems to know the truth, leaving behind grog-addled clues on his journey.
In this time-limited campaign, find him and follow his trail of riddles and rumors to call forth and combat a deadly new foe that hungers in the deep. Work with other crews to take on the Hungering One, using new features like the speaking trumpet and flag system to communicate and coordinate at a distance. Join the hunt together and share a shanty on the new drum instrument. Or, tell your own tale with a choice of tattoos and scars, letting you be the pirate you want to be.
Now?s the time for true pirates to take to the Sea of Thieves and hunt down the deadliest catch of all!
Set in a glorious piratical world of exotic islands, hidden treasures and dangers both natural and supernatural, Sea of Thieves offers something for everyone, no matter how they like to play:
- A world of exploration ? set sail upon a vast, open ocean, venturing into new regions and discovering the secrets of unspoiled islands and sunken ships. Hunt for treasure by following maps and untangling riddles, and learn to expect the unexpected...
- A world of excitement ? engage in ship-to-ship crew battles with cannon, pistol and cutlass, pursuing rival ships through raging storms. Sail in pursuit of deadly bounties or ferry cargo through hostile waters. Clash with the skeletal remains of cursed former pirates and beware undersea menaces that lurk beneath the waves!
- A world we sail together ? whether you?re playing alongside friends, matchmaking to find a crew or setting out as a ?lone wolf? pirate, you?ll have hilarious, memorable encounters in a world where every sail on the horizon is a crew of real players.
- A world of achievement ? on your quest to become a pirate legend you?ll amass loot, build a reputation and customize your ship (and yourself) with your hard-earned rewards.
