Rare have added a brand new Gears of War inspired ship set to Sea of Thieves and if you would like to know how to unlock it, you’ve come to the right place. 

The game’s developers have introduced a number of cosmetics to the game inspired by some of Xbox’s others franchises, including exclusive Banjo Kazooie content, a Halo ship, and more.

Sailing around the high seas in style is tough enough already, with many new features for ships costing players thousands of coins to purchase. It can take a long time to save up your in-game currency, too, with quests and treasure hunts the best way to build up your character’s worth.

But, not to worry… This brand new set ready to be collected and it’s absolutely free of charge!

Banjo Kazooie and Halo designs have landed in SoT previously.

While the Banjo Kazooie and Halo packs have been and gone, there’s still a chance for you to pick up your Gears of War set in Sea of Thieves.

The game’s developers have posted a brand new trailer for it, as seen below, showing off the new jet black sails featuring the game franchise’s iconic logo.

To grab your very own Omen ship set, all you have to do is jump into the pirate game between November 13 at 10am PST (7pm BST, 1pm EST) and November 22 at midnight PST (9am BST on Nov 23, 3am EST).

Once you have done that, the cosmetic pack can be redeemed in-game and will be available for selection next time you jump onto your huge Galleon.

Other features that set this Galleon apart from the rest is its striking red and black color pattern around the bottom, coupled with a huge gear based at the front of the vessel – which will no doubt go down well with fans of the video game series. Grab your own now!

This new addition comes just days before the expected announcement of the Sea of Thieves monthly content update, where Rare will no doubt add even more surprises to the mix. Once we know more about that, we’ll be the first to let you know!


Summit1g defends actions on Sea of Thieves after being labeled “toxic”

Popular Twitch streamer Jaryd ‘Summit1G’ Lazar has hit back at a report and claims that he was toxic on Sea of Thieves after breaking up servers where players wouldn’t interact in PvP. 

For the most part, playing Sea of Thieves can be a fun and enjoyable experience. You hop aboard a ship with a friend or two and sail the seas in hopes of completing quests picking up loot that you can sell on.

However, there are plenty of players who try to ruin that – typically through bombarding your ships with constant attacks. As a streamer, Summit has dealt with his fair share of this too, but he’s been able to fight back. 

Previously, he’s put people on blast on Twitter for not playing the game the right way, and while he hasn’t played Sea of Thieves for a while, he’s come under fire for his previous behavior. 

Microsoft StudiosSome players have big issues with the Sea of Thieves community.

Summit’s supposed “toxic” behavior was highlighted in a recent article after streamers quit the game due to harassment from other players. As he started up his October 4 stream, the leader of the 1G squad fired back – tearing into how some players aim to keep servers to themselves in a bid to farm coins. 

“Motherf**ker, you don’t talk about how they get those servers going in the first place – on Discord, through harassment themselves. They will stomp a ship out until they leave the game and get on their ship, you feel me? They don’t talk about all that stuff though,” he said, addressing the article. 

He turned his attention to the players who try to ruin these servers, adding: “Then, they sit on their servers where it’s supposed to be a give and take experience, pirates that take, and pirates that find, and it’s a big circle of we need each other but they sit in their circlejerk farms avoiding all aspects of fear.”

Summit added that playing like that is “not how the game should be played” so after those players took things to Discord in a bit to communicate and organize, he and his pals used “streamer benefits” to find out about them, as well ultimately infiltrating the servers.

He added that he’d never verbally abuse anyone in a racist or sexist way, but just trash-talked if someone else started on him.“We’d only talk s**t if they talk s**t, we’d only give it if they gave it,” Summit continued.  

“And if they’re giving it, they’d take it. They’re fine, they’re big boys, but what we’re talking about here is ridiculous. So, I just don’t understand why it’s a bad thing for one side to do it but not a bad thing for another side to do it.”

Plenty of his fans and Sea of Thieves players backed Summit’s cause to frustrate the players who keep servers to themselves in a bid to coin farm.

The game has undergone plenty of changes in recent months, but it’s unknown if he’ll return to it on a full-time basis as he once did.
