Rare teases bounteous booty for 2021
Those buckleswashers at Rare have just announced the final Sea of Thieves news of the year, teasing a fine haul of booty for 2021.
The new year will bring a battle pass-style progression system and a season system, and the team will focus their efforts on the most popular mode, Adventure, which means the Arena mode will probably receive a little less developer love. It's not going away, but there won't be anything new for it either.
Landlubberly: The new content model will cast off in January, with seasons lasting 3 months. Each season will offer a “new experience or way of play.”
X marks the spot: The first season will introduce a new voyage for the Merchant Alliance trading company offering a mystery on the high seas involving a lost shipwreck and its booty. New Pirate Emporium stock will appear each season, and there will be regular live events.
