Rare have revealed brand new details on the next monthly update coming to Sea of Thieves, dropping a fresh Ships of Fortune trailer at the Inside Xbox event on April 7.

The Xbox event was certainly highly anticipated, after being announced just a day before it was set to air, and it delivered a bunch of new trailers for not just the pirate game, but also Gears Tactics, Grounded and more.

Where Sea of Thieves is concerned, though, it looks like there’s a boatload of new content coming to the Xbox exclusive title – with the monthly update rolling out on April 22. There’s a lot to unpack, so let’s jump right into it.

Sea of Thieves Ships of Fortune update: What’s changing?

Emissary missions and The Reaper’s Bones

As revealed in a new trailer, above, a host of new Emissary quests are landing in Sea of Thieves for the month of April, with players able to represent different trading companies. The trailer stated: “Working on their behalf will see you rewarded with exclusive cosmetics and helping you to progress in the newly expanded reputation system.”

As well as the trading companies to pick from below, there has also been another PvP option added – The Reaper’s Bones.

Pirates waited a long time to get their beloved pets in Sea of Thieves and Rare have stepped up their game again, adding cats to the game.

These will be available to purchase in-game and can follow you in your travels across the high seas, or sleep next to you as you do all of the hard work.

Other changes

Sea of Thieves will also be adding a brand new revive feature, giving players an opportunity to rescue members of their crew should they be taken out by enemies. Other changes include new emotes, fresh cosmetic sets for ships, and more.

The game will also be moving to crossplay in the near future, after announcing it would be moving to Steam, meaning Xbox players will soon be able to link up with PC users, too.


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.
