Welcome in the New Year with a wealth of new additions in Sea of Thieves’ first free monthly content update of this decade, Legends of the Sea! Now live for all players across Xbox One, Windows 10 PC and with Xbox Game Pass, Legends of the Sea shines a spotlight on player immortalizations, sends adventurers in search of all-new Reaper’s Chests and introduces a fresh yet familiar face.
the Legends of the Sea
Umbra, the skillful
scribe who escaped the clutches of Captain Bronzebeard, has made her way through
the Devil’s Shroud with a plethora of new Commendations in tow. Players may
have noticed certain etchings and recognizable names dotted around Sea of
Thieves’ world that refer to the accomplishments of players from the community.
With Umbra’s assistance, these can now be located and interacted with to earn
exclusive Commendations, Titles, tattoo sets and Doubloons!
scallywag Duke has made his return as leader of the Bilge Rats, and despite
looking slightly the worse for wear, he has a list of Gilded Voyages for
pirates to tackle. Players can also choose to deliver their rewards to an
excavation site for double gold rewards at the cost of the reputation reward. Head
over to The Reaper’s Hideout to find this excavation site dug deeper than ever
before, where the Masked Stranger will claim your loot hauls for some extra
There’s also a new set
of Ashen Tomes ready to be collected, with accompanying Commendations and Xbox
achievements. And Duke’s return means new sets of cosmetics for pirates to
parade themselves in, including the Aristocrat Ship Set and new variants of the
Parrot Clothing Set and Corsair Sea Dog Set!
Sporting a gold decal,
the new Reaper’s Bounty Chests work in much the same way as their Doubloon-awarding
counterparts, except these ones reward brave buccaneers with 25,000 gold! The
beacon emitted from Reaper’s Bounty Chests has a golden hue indicating its
contents, and is trackable on the ship’s map like any other Reaper’s Chest.
As per Duke’s request,
all Reaper’s Chests and Bounties are now to be taken to The Reaper’s Hideout,
making for a more high-risk turn-in.
