For a game that got assaulted at launch for not having enough content, Sea of Thieves has really tackled its critics by providing a steady stream of content. The team at Rare has done an amazing job of adding more and more experiences to their pirating world. If you thought things would go a little quiet after the big update for the anniversary of the game, then you’d be wrong as the team has just added a new update and promised similar monthly additions going forward.
The latest update for Sea of Thieves adds Black Powder Stashes voyages. These can be obtained from Duke in any Tavern. There are two different types of voyages, Reaper’s Black Powder Runs and Black Powder Smuggler’s Runs. These missions will send you all over the map collecting these explosive barrels. Once collected you can trade them in with the Order of Souls, Gold Hoarders, or Merchant Alliance to raise your level. You may want to beware, though, as your cargo will be eminently combustible and you won’t be the crew carrying them. All of this means that there could be a few exploding ships on the Sea of Thieves.
You can check out the trailer for the new update below –
