At the start of the year, almost three years since it was launched, Rare's Sea of Thieves introduced seasonal content, with Season 1 bringing a raft of new content including seasonal progression, a Plunder Pass, new events and much more.
It's exactly the sort of exclusive "you-had-to-there" content that has kept players setting sail and pillaging loot so consistently over the years and with the game set to enter a new season every couple of months it promises to keep the game feeling as fresh as some hearty grog!
And it's coming round to that time again, with Season 2 on the horizon. Here is everything you need to know, so you can command the high seas!
When is Sea of Thieves Season 2 coming out?
After Season 1 was given a two-week extension, the developers announced that Season of Thieves Season 2 will be coming out on 15th April, releasing a short teaser that doesn't give too much away.
One thing that it does reveal is the inclusion of a 'hiding in a barrel' emote, something which you can see for short time during the teaser.
What will be in Season 2?
The developers have remained tight-lipped on what new content will come ashore but there will be plenty for players to get their gold teeth into.
Expect new Trials, limited-time events, and cosmetics to earn through Season 2's Plunder Pass. There will also be the usual bounty showing up in the game's store, the Pirate Emporium.
Will there be a Plunder Pass?
Yes! Each new season will come with a Plunder Pass, Sea of Thieves version of the all-too-common battle pass, increase your Renown level throughout the season and unlock items, with both a free and paid track there is something for everyone.
The Plunder Pass will cost 999 Ancient Coins, around US$9.99.
All content in the Plunder Pass will later be available in the Pirate Emporium.
