Last week's E3 also represented something of a high water mark for the series with news that the game was to get its first crossover, and with none other than Captain Jack Sparrow and the blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise, it's a match made in pirate heaven, with that treasure trove of content part of Season 3 aka A Pirate's Life, set for release on 22nd June.

To mark the occasion the developers Rare are offering players free cosmetics available through a series of Twitch Drops. There are three items to collect including an Ebon Flintlock Pistol, Onyx Tankard and Obsidian Wheel.
