Sea of Thieves Season 9 has Set Sail
Yesterday Rare announced that season nine of Sea of Thieves is available for free with Gamepass across Xbox Series consoles, Xbox One and Windows. It still surprises me the amount of love Rare has put into this game over the years. It’s never been one to resonate with me personally that much, but the fan base is there and they keep the content coming as well.
Season 9 introduces Chests of Fortune, valuable chests that can only be found within a conquered Fort of Fortune. Players that can overcome the challenge of hunting one down can turn them in for pieces of the new Fates of Fortune ship set. Players can also earn pieces from this set from The Reaper’s Bones by turning in Reaper’s Chests and Reaper’s Bounties. The symbol of the ultimate treasure hunter, the Fates of Fortune range of cosmetics will continue to expand in future updates, with Chests of Fortune moving around the world to be earned in different ways.
Additionally, Season 9 introduces a range of quality-of-life updates to enhance the experience on the seas. Players can expect updates to World Events, both in making events such as the kraken and the megalodon more common occurrences while also scaling these events more effectively to match different crew sizes. Doubloons can now be spent on new Pirate Legend-exclusive voyages, and ship captains will find an expanded Captains Logs that contain blow-by-blow accounts of their most recent exploits. For everything players can expect from Season 9, you can find the full release notes on the Sea of Thieves website.
