Becoming a Pirate Legend - Progression in Sea of Thieves - Official Walkthrough
Rare and the Sea of Thieves team took part in a live stream event to provide fans and players with more detailed information about how progression will function in the game. They want to "challenge how players experience a multiplayer game".
The goal with Sea of Thieves was to create a new kind of multiplayer experience – one that challenged perceptions of what multiplayer can be, and gives players a unique and fresh experience. Xbox and Rare believe so passionately in the magic of multiplayer, and we’re working to create an adventure that breaks down barriers between gamers playing together. We want to give potential pirates freedom over how they play, the goals they choose to take on, and ultimately the adventures they have together.
How to Become a Pirate Legend
Becoming a Pirate Legend is the core objective of Sea of Thieves, and players can build their legend by accruing reputation for their exploits and adventures. Reputation is acquired from a set of trading companies, rewarding players for advancing their interests on the high seas. These trading companies offer quests for players to pursue, offering successful brigands reputation and gold as well as improved titles, ranks and cosmetic items used to represent themselves to friends and foes.
As players progress within a trading company, they earn access to more varied and unique quests that promise unforgettable adventures and rewards. Once players build their reputation with each trading company, they will unlock their status as a Pirate Legend.
