Today Rare revealed the content coming with Season Five of the popular online adventure game Sea of Thieves.
The update that comes on December 2 will bring lots of new goodies mostly tied to the Holidays (on top of a few linked to Pirates of the Caribbean in the Pirate Emporium) and quite a bunch of features, including fireworks, the cannon rowboat, and the ability to bury treasure creating your own mini-quests that other adventurous pirates can solve (earning you reputation).
Yet, perhaps the biggest addition is also the simplest… sitting, on top of laying in bed. Roleplayers will also get a set of dices with a variety of options for the number of faces.
You can check it all out in the trailer below.
If you’re unfamiliar with the game, you can read the official description below.
