Sea of Thieves players can now sail into the game to take part in the Cursed Sails update, the game's second free update since launch. In the latest Developer update, Executive Producer Joe Neate takes the helm to talk Cursed Sails that brings skeleton ships, the Brigantine, Alliances and everything else you can expect when you log in.
Cursed Sails will introduce all the things above and more, with some items being campaign-based (time-limited) and some being content-based (persisting in the game).
Permanent content includes the new Brigantine ship for players and the threat of future skeleton ships as enemy encounters. Skeleton-themed items (such as the lantern and speaking trumpet), clothing accessories and instruments will remain for sale in shops for those who unlock them. The Hunter outfit and items will be available in shops for all players. Ghost ship decorations will remain available, for those with Legendary status. Finally, the new Alliance system will remain in place to let pirates form future fleets.
Time-limited campaign content includes a series of set battles against the skeleton armada, alongside an investigation into the cause of the attacks. It also includes the chance to unlock skeleton-themed ship decorations, a skeleton scar and special sails for the three regions.
