Season Five provides a wide variety of exciting tools for pirates across the Sea of Thieves to use.
For you gold hounds out there, you now have even more options to discover treasure. The new ability to bury treasure allows pirates to design player-created maps. Pirates can then share these maps via the Quest Board found on every Outpost and Seapost.
For you pirates who love to roleplay, you can now sit and sleep in various locations throughout the Sea of Thieves. Yes, we know what you are thinking. You can now officially sit in the Captain’s Chair aboard the Galleon!
And if sitting and sleeping weren’t enough, you can also roll dice! So why not wager a bet with a friendly crew over how best to split the Skeleton Fort loot you just earned?
For pirates who just love some good fun, there’s the new Whisper ability, Cannon Rowboats, Fireworks, Rats, and more!
Below you’ll find guides on each of the new features added to the Sea of Thieves. You’ll also find guides to unlocking the Party Boat and Midnight Blades cosmetics, as well as walkthroughs to Buried Treasures commendations.
The time has come! You can now live your pirate life to the fullest with the ability to bury treasure! However, the buried treasure maps you create can be used by crews other than your own. So you’ll have to protect them from sneaky pirates looking to find where you hid your loot!
So you can create buried treasure maps as you sail the sea, but did you know you can also share those maps with other pirates? Check out the Quest Board the next time you visit an Outpost. You can post your player-created maps to share with others. You can also take a few maps from the Quest Board to go on a hand-crafted adventure designed by your fellow pirates!
It’s time to light up the sky pirates! The next time you celebrate with your crew, why not shoot a few Fireworks from your ship? While Fireworks are all fun and games, you can instead send a Signal Flare into the sky for more serious matters. We’ll tell you all about where to find Fireworks and Signal Flares, as well as how to use them.
Another level of immersion has been added to the game with the new ability to sit and sleep! There are now hundreds of spots throughout the Sea of Thieves for your pirate to sit, relax, and take in the moment. So the next time a beautiful sunset is on the horizon, why not find a great place to take in the view.
You can now gamble for treasure with the ability to roll dice! New emotes allow your pirate to roll six different types of dice. You can earn these new emotes by progressing through Season Five. So what are you waiting for? Set sail and earn yourself some dice!
