Today marks the launch of Cursed Sails, our second major content update for Sea of Thieves, introducing fearsome enemy Skeleton Ships, the new Brigantine three-player ship, and a new Alliance system. With today's launch of Cursed Sails, we're excited to share with you that our community has reached a new milestone of five million pirates that have played Sea of Thieves thus far on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC.
As the next step on our journey, this free Cursed Sails update brings a range of new features to the Sea of Thieves, including Skeleton Ships and the new Brigantine three-player ship. A personal favorite of us at Rare is the new Alliance feature that allows players to meet in the world, form an alliance and adventure together, but always with the chance that the temptation of treachery could get too much...
We are introducing these features with a three-week time-limited campaign, with new goals and rewards each week. This Cursed Sails campaign and content update will be available free and without charge to 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. If you're unable to take part in the time-limited campaign, don't worry, as all the features introduced with this campaign will remain in the Sea of Thieves world for everyone to see and experience.
