Rare has released Vault of the Ancients, a big, free update for Sea of Thieves. Tons of new content, rewards, explorable areas, and even some furry companions, have joined the game.
The news was originally announced on Xbox Wire, and an accompanying trailer was provided to show players everything that has been added. A short list of these features can be seen below:
- Vaults of the Ancients is the latest Sea of Thieves monthly update, coming September 9 and free for all players across Xbox One, Windows 10, Xbox Game Pass and Steam.
- New Treasure Vault Voyages let players seek hidden keys for the Gold Hoarders, then decide whether to tackle the Vaults’ challenges themselves!
- Dogs finally join cats, parrots and monkeys in the Pirate Emporium, allowing players to pick up a canine sidekick for their adventures.
The full release notes are also available on the official Sea of Thieves release notes that also details several gameplay improvements, quality of life additions, and performance updates. Sea of Thieves last received their Ashen Winds update back in July, which was a banner month for them, as they surpassed over 15 million players.
