  • Set sail in search of legends with January’s free Sea of Thieves content update

    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.

    Seek Out
    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
    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!

    Yourself Gilded

    That charming
    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!

    Reap New

    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.
