During E3 2018, Microsoft teased the Sea of Thieves content updates planned for the summer. Earlier today, Rare announced that the first of these summer updates – Cursed Sails – will be available for free to all Sea of Thieves players from July 31.
According to Rare, Cursed Sails is their biggest update yet and players will now be able to battle terrifying new skeleton ships, set sail in the new three-player Brigantine ship and form Alliances with other players to take on bigger challenges and share greater rewards.
This permanent new content will be introduced into the game through a special time-limited campaign, Cursed Sails. Offering players a range of unique rewards, this three-week campaign will see skeleton ships terrorise outposts and challenge pirates to do battle on the seas. A story-driven side quest will also allow players to investigate the source of the skeleton scourge.
This Cursed Sails campaign and content update will be available free and without charge to all Sea of Thieves players who have bought the game across the Xbox One family of devices or on Windows 10 PC, or who have access to it as part of Xbox Game Pass.
