Sea of Thieves Season Eight Live Now

It’s hard to believe just how far this game has come and how many people are still playing it loyally. Available today is the launch of season 8 of Sea of Thieves.

Season 8 introduces the ability to engage in ship-to-ship PvP combat on demand. Using the new Hourglass of Fortune, players can declare loyalty for one of two Factions, and in the process opt-in to engage players of the rival Faction in Pirate vs Pirate battles for Allegiance, Treasure, and exclusive rewards. As players can emerge victorious in successive battles the potential for greater rewards grows alongside the risk of being targeted themselves in equal measure.


In addition to PvP on demand, Season 8 comes with 100 levels of free rewards to earn and the latest  Plunder Pass available for separate purchase. The Season also introduces two new PvP focused Milestones for Captains, allowing players to represent themselves based on their exploits in battle with other pirates.

I think it’s really about time I hit the high seas again and check out all of the new content that’s available, it’s been a little while and they are always updating things and adding new stuff.

As always the new content is available for free to folks on Gamepass, for the full details of what’s there check out the full blog post HERE

Married and father of 3 children he has been gaming since the ripe age of 6 when he got his first NES system and over 30 years later he is still gaming almost daily. Kevin is also co-founder of the Play Some Video Games (PSVG) Podcast network which was founded over five years ago and is still going strong. Some of his favorite gaming series includes Fallout and Far Cry, he is a sucker for single player adventure games (hence his big reviews for Playstation), and can frequently be found getting down in one battle royale or another. If it's an oddball game, odds are he's all about it.
