'Sea of Thieves' Lets You Lead A Pirate's Life And Join Forces With Captain Jack Sparrow In Season 3, Now Available

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

In a monumental crossover of Sea of Thieves and Pirates of the Caribbean, Captain Jack Sparrow and his crew arrive in Season Three to spark a new adventure on the Sea of Thieves.

Unfolding across five incredible tales packed with secrets and side-quests, this new campaign gives players a lovingly crafted story to play solo or with their crew.

Players will go on a quest to free Jack Sparrow from his prison and witness the power of the world's greatest pirate treasure, which Jack happens to have stolen. Jack is being pursued by his old enemy, the notorious Davy Jones, and their arrival on the Sea of Thieves will ultimately spell disaster if Jones and his forces aren't stopped.

These iconic characters are much more than cameo appearances, and the developers have crafted a compelling original narrative that explores what makes each world special.

New adventures bring new environments and challenges. As the story progresses, players will battle Davy Jones alongside Captain Jack Sparrow and have the chance to explore memorable locations from both universes – not only extending to Sea of Thieves and Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise but the famous park attractions that have been thrilling people for decades.

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!

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!

Unveiled last week, the gameplay trailer for Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life provides a tantalising look at this crossover adventure to whet the appetites of players preparing to download the update, as does the special behind-the-scenes Xbox broadcast that offers sightings from two of the brand new Tall Tales.

The Season Three update including Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life will be available for free to all Sea of Thieves players who have bought the game on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows 10 PC or via Steam, or players who have access to it with Xbox Game Pass.

Players will face grave danger from deadly new enemies wherever they sail. Terrifying Phantoms will require swift reflexes to deal with, while Sirens swarm beneath the waves and wield devastating new weapons of their own. Even the decks of ships might not be safe if there are lumbering Ocean Crawlers around, and these new threats will be appearing all around the Sea of Thieves in future updates, not just during players' adventures with Jack Sparrow!

The Sea of Thieves: A Pirate's Life update is the cornerstone of Season Three, now available and free for all players who have purchased the game on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S or PC, or have access to it via Xbox Games Pass.
