[Xbox @ E3 2021] Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean Invades Rare’s Sea of Thieves in Upcoming Season 3 Update

Drink Up Me Hearties, while you can! Come 22 June 2021, Rare will be releasing their Season 3 update for Sea of Thieves, and with it see some new yet very familiar pirates enter the game world. As the cornerstone feature of the latest update, a collaboration event with Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean franchise will take place. The crossover will see Captain Jack Sparrow and his infamous crew arrive from beyond the horizon to spark an epic new adventure.

Unfolding across five tales packed with secrets and side-quests, this new campaign gives players a new story to play either by themselves or alongside their crew. According to Rare, this will be “game’s most ambitious story-driven campaign to date”. 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 just so 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.

Of course, 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.

Players will also be facing 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.

Sea of Thieves aims to immerse players in a fantastical depiction of the pirate life, filled with colourful characters and vibrant locations to explore. The sense of fun, wonder and the imaginative spirit that we hold real affection for in the world of Pirates of the Caribbean always felt like it could be complementary to the world of Sea of Thieves, and we’ve striven alongside the teams at Disney to celebrate this.

The heart of our story explores what it truly means to be a pirate on the Sea of Thieves, and this has allowed us not only to tap into the deeper meaning of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies and the original attraction, but also allow players to go on adventures with Jack Sparrow, learning more about how he sees the pirate life and his place on the Sea of Thieves. This story moves the Sea of Thieves world forwards in unexpected ways, and it’s been a joy to bring these two worlds together, treating both in a way that feels authentic and delightful to experience.
