Sun, Sand and Sea of Thieves

For those of you who were planning to get away for the summer, but had your plans scuppered by our collective situation – don’t worry, there’s a whole other world for you to explore from the safety of your sofa! If you’re stuck on land with nowhere to go, the ‘Summer of Sea of Thieves’ event kicks off today, inviting you to dive in and take a challenge-driven tour of our beautiful ocean regions.

From meeting the local pirate populace to attempting explosive aerobatics, this event serves up 10 challenge sets, each containing four goals, plus one more for Pirate Legends with some special tasks to tackle! You’ll have until the event ends on September 30 to pick and choose which of the wildly varied goals you want to complete, based on your play style and the rewards on offer.

There are glittering piles of gold and Doubloons up for grabs, plus rare cosmetics and player Titles – including a highly prized ‘Legend of the Sun’ Title to be bagged by those heroes who fully commit to this event’s adventurous antics and risky requests.

Turn Your Garden into a Galleon

It’s not just your in-game summer experience that we’re aiming to improve: thanks to a new summer-themed set of merchandise soon to land in the official Sea of Thieves store, you’ll be able to enjoy the sunshine in true pirate fashion. Deckchairs and towels will be on offer for those of you who want to sunbathe in style, and you’ll even be able to keep hydrated with your very own Sea of Thieves water bottle.

Head to the Sea of Thieves store later to this month to pick up the first of your pirate poolside accessories, and make sure you’re quick about it! Wouldn’t want things to get salty if you miss out…
