Sea of Thieves gamers are getting their first take a look at the much-anticipated Season Ten this week, with a brand new video showcasing Uncommon’s plans for this bold ‘Tremendous Season’. With Season Ten due for launch on October 19, this content material breakdown provides an early alternative to seek out out what new options you may anticipate to be having fun with later this yr and when every replace is scheduled to reach!
In contrast to former Seasons, the content material for Season Ten might be launched in instalments over a number of months. First up is the introduction of a brand new approach to play and share progress with your mates: Guilds. Launching alongside the brand new Season on October 19, this development system is designed to assist gamers type significant bonds past their fast crew and unlock a collection of rewards alongside the best way.
As soon as a Guild has been shaped by a Captain pledging an owned ship, as much as 24 gamers can crew as much as work in direction of shared targets. Members of a Guild will have the ability to sail on different gamers’ pledged ships, full with all their chosen cosmetics, and progress their Ship Milestones even when the vessel’s proprietor is offline. By doing so, they’ll assist to contribute to the shared Guild Popularity and unlock model new cosmetics for all their Guildmates to get pleasure from.
With customizable names, branding, and mottos, Guilds might be customized to mirror their members and produce everybody collectively below the identical banner. By means of the brand new system, pirates will have the ability to extra absolutely categorical themselves and their play types, and create a wider community of buddies than has beforehand been potential with the usual four-person crew system.
The second main Season Ten replace can be supposed to convey gamers collectively, although in a barely much less collaborative method! A brand new kind of world occasion is ready to reach in November, as unusual ghostly notes begin showing pinned to ships’ masts with instructions for finding and retrieving a helpful new artefact often known as the Cranium of Siren Tune.
There’s a catch, although: this distinctive Voyage is obtainable to all gamers crusing the seas concurrently. All crews who settle for it’ll share the identical treasure maps, pointing them to the identical chest and key crucial to assert the Cranium. Being the primary to achieve a dig spot will depart you in possession of one of many two parts, nevertheless it’s ineffective with out the opposite half and as quickly as you dig it up, it’ll emit a beacon for all different crews to see and provides chase. Declare each chest and key for your self, nonetheless, and also you’ll be rewarded with this highly effective historic artefact.
Difficult because it could be, unlocking the chest and getting the Cranium is just the primary a part of the battle. As soon as aboard, the Cranium will place a curse in your ship to scale back its crusing velocity, giving these enemy crews time to catch up and attempt to declare the prize for themselves. If you wish to the be the one handing it in and strolling away with the gold – and the glory – you then and your crew might want to man these cannons and battle your approach again to land!
A New Solution to Play
Simply as we hope that the Cranium of Siren Tune will encourage aggressive play, we acknowledge that for some gamers, a quieter, extra unbiased expertise might be preferable. That’s why, in December, Season Ten’s third main function will introduce a wholly new sport mode that grants gamers the flexibility to sail the Sea of Thieves alone or with a crew of buddies, inside their very own personal sport session.
Safer Seas is meant to supply a gentler introduction to Sea of Thieves for brand spanking new gamers, in addition to offering a quieter map for current gamers trying to pursue their very own solo adventures. Should you’re hoping to get some peaceable fishing executed, or full just a few Tall Tales with out interference, Safer Seas is the right alternative. All relevant Commendations might be progressed on this sport mode, so there’s rather a lot to work in direction of without having to control the horizon for enemy gamers.
On the identical time, the diminished dangers of Safer Seas imply that the rewards you may earn might be correspondingly decreased from the primary sport mode, which is able to turn into often known as Excessive Seas. Buying and selling Corporations will supply much less gold and repute for treasures handed in (though Seasonal Renown might be granted as regular), and the rank 40 cap signifies that Pirate Legend standing can’t be attained whereas in Safer Seas, nor can Voyages on behalf of the Athena’s Fortune Buying and selling Firm be undertaken. Another difficult and PvP-focused elements of the sport will even be out of attain, akin to The Reaper’s Bones, the Emissary system and Faction battles.
Whereas Excessive Seas will stay the first and most aspirational approach to play Sea of Thieves, Safer Seas provides a complimentary approach to discover and study extra concerning the pirate life in a extra predictable surroundings. Our hope is that this broadens Sea of Thieves’ attraction and encourages ever extra gamers to seek out their sea legs, earlier than graduating to the Excessive Seas and proving themselves as Pirate Legends!
