For the two-plus years since the release of Sea of Thieves, many of the game’s reoccurring fans are well accustomed to the structure for new content being injected into the treacherous waters that lie ahead. Periodically, developer Rare welcomes a new title update which includes welcoming additions like animal companions, new questlines, or just general in-game cosmetics to spend you hard-earned gold on.

But entering 2021, the team decided it is best to rework how content is handled with season being introduced to Sea of Thieves. While its own take on monthly updates did the game its justice – especially after the game’s initial launch – Sea of Thieves is taking the approach alike many other ongoing online experiences on the market already.

The transition was scheduled to take place sometime in January with more detail to arise. That timeframe is now and Rare uploaded a new video on Tuesday to address how everything will operate under season for Sea of Thieves. You can watch the trailer in the video below:

“The plan is for a Sea of Thieves Season to last approximately three months,” Executive Producer Joe Neate pens in the blog post. “Each Season will add new content to the world – for example, in Season One a new Merchant Alliance Voyage becomes a permanent part of the game – and we’ll also introduce new Events and challenges throughout the Season to keep you entertained.

“This is all content you can enjoy alongside organic Seasonal progression, which we’ll get to shortly. Seasonal content is free for all Sea of Thieves pirates to play, and its progression system offers a treasure trove of rewards to earn as you progress through levels of Renown – rewards ranging from in-game currency through to cosmetics, emotes and even Ancient Coins to spend in the Pirate Emporium!”

While seasons are to be the new foundation for how content is harbored for Sea of Thieves, Rare does elaborate that monthly updates are not being removed completely. Instead, the smaller increments will then welcome more time for the development team to dedicate its efforts to bug fixes and other well-needed adjustments to better the game’s quality of life.
