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.
