From Press Release:
Today is a monumental day for Sea of Thieves. We’re not only celebrating the arrival of Season Three with its raft of new Events, improvements and rewards, but also the epic collaboration that is Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life – an incredible new story campaign that brings Pirates of the Caribbean sailing into the Sea of Thieves.
Like previous Seasons in Sea of Thieves, Season Three comes free of charge to all players and includes 100 levels of rewards to be earned by sailing the seas and steadily increasing your Renown. Time-limited Events can boost your Renown, as can Trials: wide-ranging sets of Deeds refreshed for Season Three as you take on incoming adversaries and Tall Tales. Season Three’s Plunder Pass is available to buy separately, adding all-new premium treasures to the Seasonal reward pool! Learn more in our Seasons Explained and Plunder Pass Explained articles.
Adventure with Jack Sparrow
At the heart of Season Three is Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life – a collection of five carefully crafted Tall Tales forming an original story where Jack Sparrow stars alongside our pirate crews. Players will journey to strange, ethereal realms and dive deep below the waves on their quest to defeat the nefarious Davy Jones, who has pursued Jack to the Sea of Thieves and threatens to destroy the pirate life unless his schemes can be stopped.
Packed with vast new locations, an assortment of dangerous new enemies, secrets to uncover and cosmetic rewards to earn, Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life is an exhilarating experience that we hope players will enjoy diving into alongside the legendary Captain Jack Sparrow.
New Dangers Await
The seas are always changing, and the new enemies you’ll encounter during Season Threearen’t just confined to the latest Tall Tales. Trident-wielding Sirens from the deep, nimble pirate Phantoms and lumbering Ocean Crawlers have awoken throughout the world, meaning that new threats are liable to arise during any journey across the seas. Be ready to think on your feet and learn new strategies to safeguard your life, your ship and your treasure! Cunning pirates can even snare a Trident of Dark Tides from a fallen Siren and wield it themselves, an addition to the usual arsenal which is sure to prove useful when facing these new foes.
Find Eternal Freedom
To celebrate the arrival of Jack Sparrow and his devoted crew, Season Three sees the Pirate Emporium hosting special items themed around Pirates of the Caribbean. The Captain Jack Sparrow Crew Set contains costumes inspired by Jack’s own iconic look along with outfits representing his loyal shipmates, while the Eternal Freedom Ship Collection lets you pay homage to Jack’s seafaring pride and joy. An assortment of new Jack Sparrow Emotes give some classic Sea of Thieves gestures a new lease of life, and last but not least, the faithful Prison Dog finds a well-deserved home within our collection of canine pets.
Elsewhere, players who pick up the Season Three Plunder Pass will unlock extra rewards as they earn Renown, all of which – from the Shining Pegasus Costume and weapons to premium picks from the electrifying Thunderous Fury ship set – are so new that not even the Emporium has them in stock yet!
