'Sea of Thieves' (ALL) Smuggler’s Fortune Content Update Adds New Adventures, Premium Store And More

by Rainier on Sept. 11, 2019 @ 2:17 p.m. PDT

Sea of Thieves is an immersive, shared-world adventure game filled with pirates, unexpected dangers and loot for the taking.

Sea of Thieves is a uniquely co-operative multiplayer experience1 set in a shared world that combines the thrill of adventuring together with friends with the unpredictability of emergent play and unexpected threats – both from other players and the world itself.

Be the pirates you want to be, share adventures with friends and set your own rules, roles and goals in a world where every sail on the horizon is another crew of players with unknown intent.

Explore, fight and live the pirate life together in this uniquely fresh and fun multiplayer game. Choose your voyage and decide how you’ll approach adventures in a world where every sail on the horizon is another crew of players with unknown intent.

Sea of Thieves also supports cross-play across the Xbox One family of devices and Windows 10 PCs so that everyone can play regardless of their preferred platform.

Smuggler’s Fortune – the latest monthly update to Sea of Thieves, available starting today – brings players a host of fresh content including new Voyages to complete and loot to claim, unique pirate and ship cosmetics and adorable animal sidekicks.

A prominent feature of this new update is the Pirate Emporium, a premium store that can be accessed from the home screen or from any Outpost in the game. Stocking all sorts of must-have pirate accessories, the Pirate Emporium also introduces a range of utterly charming pet monkeys and parrots to the Sea of Thieves!

New Adventures!

Starting with Smuggler’s Fortune, the Bilge Rats’ Mercenary Voyages will not only be free to accept but will allow you to actually earn Doubloons. This month’s Rag and Bone voyages offer a special twist on Cargo Runs, setting crews on course for Shipwreck Bay to locate hidden crates which need delivering to various Seaposts. But beware: time is of the essence to get these to their destinations, and yours won’t be the only crew heeding the call…

New Cosmetics and Customisations!

Get the pirate look you’ve always wanted with the introduction of the Pirate Emporium and Black Market.

The Pirate Emporium is a new premium store where pirates can acquire exclusive cosmetic items, emotes and pets using a new currency, Ancient Coins (purchasable through the Xbox store or directly in-game). Treat yourself to a loyal sidekick in the form of a pet parrot or monkey. Express yourself through a range of new emotes. Or show off your ship with unique liveries, beginning with the Bear & Bird livery set, inspired by Rare’s beloved Banjo-Kazooie series.

Elsewhere, spend your hard-earned Doubloons on special cosmetics newly smuggled into Duke’s Black Market, including variants of sets that were previously time-limited. This month gives players a chance to grab the Fearless Bone Crusher items, sure to appeal to anyone who missed the original set last year. If gold is all you have, Duke will accept that for some of his other ever-changing wares, starting this month with Deep Ocean Crawler weapons!

New Riches to Find!

There’s more loot at large on the seas than ever before. Increase your pirate fortune by taking down Ancient Skeletons, rare new enemies who carry Ancient Coins that can be spent in the Pirate Emporium. You can also send roaming Skeleton Sloops back to the depths and lay claim to their hoards of treasure. So following hot on the heels of loot being added to Barrels of Plenty and the emergence of the Reaper’s Chest, there are more riches than ever just waiting to be found… or stolen!

The Pirate Emporium and Black Market are both permanent additions to the game, while Rag and Bone Voyages are temporary and will be replaced by new activities when Sea of Thieves’ next update arrives in October.

Smuggler’s Fortune is free for all Sea of Thieves players who have bought the game across the Xbox One family of devices or on Windows 10 PC, or who have access to it as part of Xbox Game Pass. Simply download and install the latest Sea of Thieves update to get access.

Key Features:

  • A unique co-op experience that combines the thrill of adventuring together with friends with the unpredictability of a shared landscape and its threats, both from other players and the world itself.
  • Designed around players working together with shared goals and rewards, where you’ll go on epic voyages in search of legendary artefacts and buried treasure, but in a world where every sail on the horizon is another crew. What flag are they flying, and what do they want?
  • Crew up with your friends and be the pirates you want, choosing your own roles and goals. Explore the world, take on quests, or seek out conflict. It’s your crew against the world, and how you deal with other crews is entirely up to you.
  • Invites players into a beautiful world with a distinctive art style, ripe for exploration and with mythical creatures lurking on islands and under the inviting surface of the sea…
  • Offers an experience that will evolve over time, landing in players’ hands early and growing thanks to community insights and feedback. New ways to play will be unveiled as the world expands and evolves.
