Being a Pirate Is Alright to Be

Sea of Thieves events are getting some sweet boosts in a brand-new update that's going live today. The Sea of Thieves Lost Treasures Update is now available and it's giving us a lot of cool activities to keep up busy in the summer months ahead.

If you haven't been keeping up with Sea of Thieves, the fine folks at Rare have been hard at work cranking out new content for players to enjoy. Although the game had a bit of a shaky start, it seems that they've managed to stabilize and keep a decent pace in recent weeks.

Now, an all-new Lost Treasures update is here. While some changes have surely come to the game, a major focus of this update is enhancing the event experience in Sea of Thieves.

What's Changing with Sea of Thieves Events?

One of the bigger highlights in the Lost Treasures update is the enhancements to Tall Tales. Tooltips will now appear on the map to show you where you will start your adventure and a new checkpoint system will let you play through these missions at your own pace without worrying about losing progress. If you've already played through all of the Tall Tales, there are hints of some new rewards — even for people who have already beaten them.

Sea of Thieves is more or less an MMO, and daily bounties are finally giving players a little more content to chew through. These bounties will be "mini objectives" that might require you to take down a specific target, find a certain piece of treasure, or traveling to somewhere far away on the map.

You might not be down for the daily grind, though, and Rare has you covered! There will be weekly and one-off Sea of Thieves events available, too. As an example, the Fort Night event will be available every Friday this month, increasing the returns on all Stronghold treasures taken from Skeleton Forts. On the flip side of the coin, the Reaper's Rewards event has some new emotes that you can score.

You can read about the changes to Sea of Thieves events for all the fine details. If you don't already own this game, you can get it on the Microsoft Store for $39.99 or your regional equivalent. Otherwise, you can add it to your Wishlist on Steam and wait for it to release there.
