Season 8 of Sea of Thieves is launching November 22nd. And it’s a big one.
In this season players will be able to do opt-in player versus player, or rather crew versus crew, combat. Every new ship will be equipped with the Hourglass of Fate, which let’s players choose between two factions. The Guardians of Fortune or the Servants of the Flame.
Ships will submerge under the sea to prepare for battle (ready your cannons!). When the ship re-emerges from the water it’ll be close to the enemy ship. And the update has a slight battle royale touch too, as you’ll be designated a PvP area which you can’t leave. If you do, your ship will sink and the opposing team will gain experience in their Hourglass of Fate.
Season 8 of Sea of Thieves will go live on November 22nd on Xbox and PC. And as always, it’s a free update.
