In the sense that many players already enjoy Sea of Thieves, developer Rare continues to experiment with additions that will make players see more reason to continue playing the live service experience. For one, the game continues to offer free content throughout its lifespan with monthly updates and new periodic season taking its place. But there is also full-on title updates that bring new things to the game.

This past June Rare welcomes Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life which featured Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow to the game. The add-on being a free experience for Sea of Thieves owners to take on, game owners joined in by the boat load according to the developer. By the end of June this year, Rare shared that it met the highest number of concurrent users ever – roughly 4.8 million users.

During a new announcement from Tuesday’s Xbox Gamescom Livestream, the next event for Sea of Thieves features Gearbox Software’s Borderlands in a new ‘Mayhem’ event that is live now. You can watch the reveal trailer in the video below:

“Larinna and the Bilge Rats have been working to get pirates co-operating and clearing out threats in recent times, so now it’s time to interject some more traditional Bilge Rat activities: accomplishing tasks through piratical pandemonium! In the Making Mayhem Event, it’s your job to enliven the Sea of Thieves by looting, shooting and blowing things up…” Rare gives for the overview of the event.

“Larinna has laid out two flavours of Challenge to let you build Favour with the Bilge Rats: Minor Mayhem Challenges are bite-sized tasks like blasting a shark with a Gunpowder Barrel or torching skeletons with a Firebomb, while Major Mayhem Challenges are more lucrative but demanding acts like looting all the gold piles in a Treasure Vault or tearing through a Tall Tale. Earn enough Favour and you’ll be rewarded with parts of the Mayhem ship set – the envy of looters and shooters the world over!”

“Complete Major and Minor Mayhem Challenges to earn Favour with the Bilge Rats. Earn enough Favour and Larinna will reward you with parts of the Mayhem ship set.” This is not the first crossover event with Borderlands for sure. Previously, Pandora ripped part of Fornite’s first map back in its Mayhem event in 2019. You can read the full report by heading here.
