Sea of Thieves Upcoming Cursed Sails Content Update Detailed

Prepare yourselves for some Cursed Sails.

Microsoft and Rare announced Sea of Thieves’ second free content update, Cursed Sails, and it comes with permanent and time-limited content for pirates to enjoy.

The studio released the new information on their the game’s official website, and it is quite a lot. First of all, it brings new “terrifying skeleton ships” with crews of skeletons set to take revenge on the living. Your mission is to protect the world from these attacks, once each region is called out upon for an attack by the skeletons. Not only that, permanent content includes the new Brigantine ship, as well as new weapons, new legendary ship cosmetics, new clothes and some items available in the shop will be permanently available to the player if purchased.

Cursed Sails will introduce all the things above and more, with some items being campaign-based (time-limited) and some being content-based (persisting in the game).
Permanent content includes the new Brigantine ship for players and the threat of future skeleton ships as enemy encounters. Skeleton-themed items (such as the lantern and speaking trumpet), clothing accessories and instruments will remain for sale in shops for those who unlock them. The Hunter outfit and items will be available in shops for all players. Ghost ship decorations will remain available, for those with Legendary status. Finally, the new Alliance system will remain in place to let pirates form future fleets.
Time-limited campaign content includes a series of set battles against the skeleton armada, alongside an investigation into the cause of the attacks. It also includes the chance to unlock skeleton-themed ship decorations, a skeleton scar and special sails for the three regions.
Cursed Sails update comes to Sea of Thieves on July 31st.
