Sea of Thieves is commemorating the scary season in its recently launched Fate of the Damned upgrade, and while it presents a series of appropriately ominous brand-new trips and cosmetics, it’s the really long-awaited arrival of an in-game occasions tab that’s filled me with specific glee.
As part of the brand-new upgrade, those all set for some perky Halloween experience can gather brand-new Fate of the Damned trips from Larinna outside any station. These will assist gamers throughout the ocean to discover the fates of her missing Bilge Rates team. There’s a various trip weekly throughout of the Fate of the Damned occasion, and a choice of associated benefits.
Completing any Fate of the Damned trip will, for example, unlock the ominous Face of Fear cosmetic product, and brand-new weekly seasonal Challenges, along with the event-long Slayer of Fate Challenge, bring their own benefits. The latter awards the Soulflame Lantern, and a choice of Soulflame Weapons wait for those that handle to finish Sea of Thieves’ weekly seasonal difficulties. Additionally, Pirate Legends that handle to polish off the entire lot can open the Soulflame Captain and Crew outfits from Larinna.
There’s a lot more going on over the next couple of weeks, nevertheless, consisting of the impending Ghoul & Glory Weekend, using double gold and credibility, plus the return of Fort Nights on Fridays, which bring enhanced Stronghold benefits.
The finest news of all though (as far as I’m worried, a minimum of), is that Sea of Thieves’ complete calendar of upcoming occasions, and a total record of a gamer’s existing development in each, can now be discovered straight in-game, by means of the brand-new Events tab. No longer is a spur of the minute hop to the Sea of Thieves site needed to keep an eye on whatever going on worldwide.
Elsewhere in today’s Fate of the Damned upgrade, there are brand-new Aristrocrat and Wild Rose products offered from Larinna, while premium Pirate Emporium additions consist of the appropriately scary brand-new Soulflame Ship Collection, plus skeletal feline and pet dog family pets. The latter enhance in 2015’s skeletal bird and monkey family pets, which likewise go back to the shop for Halloween.
