Sea of Thieves is about to get Captaincy! What does this mean for those who are not familiar with pirate language? You will now be able buy and customize your ship. This ability will be available in the game's seventh season. It launched on August 4.
Even if you’ve made it rich in Sea of Thieves and are loaded to the gills in gold, you can only purchase one of each type of ship: the Sloop, Brigantine, and Galleon. In the teaser video, we can see that the Sloop sells for 250,000, the Brigantine for 325,000, and the Galleon, which is for four people, at 500,000. Once one of these vessels is yours for the keeping, you can give it a name, and it’ll appear on a wooden plaque on the ship’s crest. If you really want to put your fingerprint on it, you can customize the captain’s cabin, right down to the design of the table, chair, and carpet.
New trinkets can be used to display your accomplishments at sea. We don’t yet know how many trinkets are available, but the video shows items that can sit on shelves or hang on walls. Each item can be placed however you wish. Be aware: Each item is physics-based. This means that they will slide in storms, and when under attack. After an expedition, it is possible to have to pick them back up and adjust the way they are hung.
Each time you return to your ship, it’ll be just as you left it – including damage sustained. You can make it new again by spending some gold in a shop to repair the damage and paint it.
The seventh season brings you more opportunities with the introduction Milestones, a new progression system which tracks your progress across a variety of fields. If you cook 25 provisions, you’ll unlock a Milestone. Earn 30,000 gold as an Athena’s Fortune Emissary, and you’ll unlock another. You’ll receive unique rewards with the Milestones, including ship customizations.
Within this season, players will come across a variety of other new things, such as Captain’s Voyages to undertake, over 100 levels of rewards to earn, and plenty of secrets to unearth. And shortly after this new content hits, Sea of Thieves’ next time-limited Adventure ‘A Hunter’s Cry’ arrives on August 18. Details on this story-based quest are scarce at the moment, but we don’t have long to wait to find out what treasure or mystery we’ll be chasing.
