Shrouded Spoils, the next downloadable content for Sea of Thieves will launch on Wednesday. A lot of new content (both cosmetic and gameplay mechanics) will alter the Sea of Thieves experience going forward. One of the most significant additions is fog, a new weather condition set to cause havoc for your pirate crew.
New threats ahead
Fog is meant to minimize visibility but also provide a way for your crew to sneak up on others. Enemies can also use the fog to their advantage. New adversaries include a different skeleton sloop that sails the seas trying to hunt you down. These vessels have varying degrees of behaviors that can ignore you or attack the ship head-on. Speaking of skeletons, six additional skeleton forts will be scattered throughout the world.
If you thought the Kraken and Megalodon were tough, get ready for a greater challenge. Shrouded Spoils features an updated Kraken with new attacks that are sure to test even the most seasoned pirates. To make matters worse, the Kraken will make more frequent appearances, so always be on your guard.
More activities and customization options
Outside of the gameplay tweaks, Shrouded Spoils contains a bunch of cosmetics upgrades, commendations for Pirate Legends, and brand new Merchant Alliance items to collect. With new customization options, you’ll be able to make your ship stand out among the others on the open seas.
Get ready to make new memories
