Sea of Thieves is switching to seasonal updates and a battle pass


Big changes are coming to Sea of Thieves in 2021. Instead of monthly updates, the new year will see a shift to seasons, which will begin with a major content update and will run for roughly three months. The first season will begin in January with the launch of a new Merchant Alliance Voyage in which you’ll “piece together clues across land and sea trying to locate a lost shipment out there in the world—a lost shipwreck waiting to be found.”

Each new season will include “featured and live events,” along with new rewards for players, quality of life patches, updates to the Pirate Emporium in-game store, and Twitch Drops reward events. A new progression system will also be introduced that will give players the opportunity to earn up to 100 levels of “Pirate Renown” per season, with various in-game rewards unlocking along the way.
