The Rare team has announced big changes for Sea of Thieves. With the start of the new year, the makers will only offer seasonal updates for the game. So far, new content has been added to the title every month. A season will last about three months and offer different events. As early as January, the search for a previously lost delivery that will lead you to a shipwreck is due with "Merchant Alliance Voyage".
In addition, fans can look forward to another progression system in which you can unlock a total of 100 levels with various items over the course of a season. There will also be an optional and chargeable "Plunder Pass" which will provide you with even more rewards. A price has not yet been named.

According to Rare, the development of new content for the PvP arena has also been stopped for the time being. Over 97 percent of the players are in adventure mode, which is why the team wants to focus on this area. The arena remains a part of Sea of Thieves. The last monthly update is due on December 9th with the "Festival of Giving".
All readers receive daily news, articles, guides, videos and podcasts about their favorite games free of charge. So far we have financed this site through advertising and kept it as free of clickbaits or paid items as possible, but since COVID-19 this has become increasingly difficult. Many companies are cutting or cutting their advertising budgets for 2020. Budgets that we unfortunately have to rely on if we want to continue to offer PC games free of charge as usual in the future.
For this reason we turn to you now. You can support us as a PC Games supporter so that we can continue to offer our content in the usual form for free, without introducing a paywall or publishing clickbait news like "And you won't believe what happened next …" . Every contribution, large or small, is valuable.
