It feels only yesterday when Rare first released Sea of Thieves, and now the developer is celebrating 1,000 days since the game’s launch with a nostalgic trailer and several rewards for the players. This celebration takes place shortly after the last giveaway was announced for the Festival of Giving.
Speaking of, the Festival of Giving was announced last week, and it’s touted to be an event that provides players with a deluge of prizes and rewards. Developer Rare states that during this festival, players will be able to acquire a variety of items by simply doing different challenges beginning this January 20, 2021.
In addition to that, Sea of Thieves will be hosting both new and returning events during that time, even fan-favorites that took place during past updates. Since the event is called the Festival of Giving, pirates who are wealthier than others will be commended and rewarded for giving to those who aren’t as lucky.
Of course, players can expect Twitch rewards to be offered as well to those dedicated viewers of the platform.
With that in mind, it is truly beginning to look a lot like Christmas, as Sea of Thieves prepares for the holiday season by offering players one-of-a-kind gifts to enjoy. The action-adventure pirate game is now celebrating 1,000 days since its release back in 2018, and it appears that developer Rare is more than willing to show appreciation to its fans via a variety of goodies.
Asides from that though, the developer dropped a nostalgic trailer on YouTube that recounted the different major events that took place in-game from day 1 through day 1,000. As a part of the celebration, Sea of Thieves players who log in to their account in the upcoming days will be given commemorative cosmetics.
According to the game’s official website, this celebration will run from December 13, 2020 through December 16, 2020, so players should definitely check their account within this time period to claim the different presents.
Those fans who enjoy the lore of Sea of Thieves will be thrilled to know that a new audiobook for the game’s novel, Athena’s Fortune, is on its way. It will be narrated by actor Toby Stephens, who some players might know as Captain Flint in the Black Sails TV series.
Another exciting announcement is that developer Rare will be releasing an official Sea of Thieves version of the Monopoly board game. There’s a bunch of other merchandise available on the Rare Store, so dedicated fans may want to check that out.
In other news, Rare has recently decided to make a significant change in the way it releases updates. Going forward, new content will be released following a strict schedule. For instance, Sea of Thieves players can look forward to big things in 2021, as the developer will be releasing major updates via separate seasons.
Similar to other popular titles, each season will have its own battle pass, which is known as “plunder passes” in Sea of Thieves. This new change will be first introduced to its players via Season 1, which will run for three months starting January.
Naturally, players can expect all kinds of new content and activities to enjoy. The developer has yet to reveal what it has planned for Season 1, but we can’t wait to learn more about it.
