Sea Of Thieves has dropped anchor on Steam

Oh I'm so jealous of all the new players who're going to get to experience Sea Of Thieves for the first time. Today, Rare's excellent loot huntin', ship shootin' pirate sandbox opened its doors to Steam players. So, Sea Of Thieves is no longer exclusive to the Windows Store, after two years, and what's more, it has cross-platform play and progression between Steam, Windows and…

Sea Of Thieves finally adds checkpoints to Tall Tales

The newest Sea Of Thieves update docked yesterday, and though it hasn't got quite as much big new stuff as last month's, Lost Treasures is bringing a whole heap of mini-events to earn bonus loot for your pirates. More importantly, there are also tons of quality of life changes being introduced, the first of which are the long-awaited checkpoints for Tall Tales.

Sea Of Thieves hits Steam’s shores next month

It's been a long, arduous voyage through the storms of "being a Windows Store exclusive", but finally, Sea Of Thieves is making landfall on Steam's shores. Rare's lovely little piracy sandbox will drop anchor on June 3rd, letting former Windows sailors carry their progress over to the new vessel with full cross-play between Steam, Windows and Xbox. With two years of updates under its belt,…

Feature: Back with a bang

Podcast: the triumphant return, and Gears Tactics vs XCOM: Chimera Squad

We've been away from podcasting for a while, ever since Bungus Humongous (who used to record and edit it) fell off his skateboard and exploded into a pile of coins. But now we're back! And because we all need a chat with mates at this difficult time, we're just having a nice chat about the games we're playing every week. This time: Gears Tactics vs.…

Sea Of Thieves has a dedicated photography subreddit and it’s really lovely

So often I find myself caught staring at the gorgeous land and sea-scapes of Sea Of Thieves. The views in this game really catch you off guard - sometimes it's a sunset peaking over the waves after you've just emerged from the hull of your ship, others it's the moody sky reflecting off the water as a finally storm passes. If you find yourself grabbing…

Sea Of Thieves has a great bug that flings ships into the air, so I rated their techniques

Sea Of Thieves has a very good bug that can make ships spontaneously yeet themselves into the sky. Sometimes it occurs at outposts, presumably when another player's boat is trying to spawn exactly where yours is docked. Other times it happens when you ram your ship into something and get it a bit stuck. The game is usually pretty good with course correction when these…

Sea Of Thieves players are immortalising their real-life pets with its new cats

I know I won't shut up about it, but Sea Of Thieves got cats for pets yesterday. And as if they weren't brilliant enough, pirates are now welcoming these furry friends aboard their ships to remind them of their real-life kitties. For some players, the four-legged crewmates are a sort of memorial, too, naming their in-game cats after pets that have passed on, so they…

Recruit a kitty as your first mate in Sea Of Thieves’ Ships Of Fortune update today

New pets, a dastardly PvP faction and fresh ways to earn extra gold and reputation headline the shiny new things waiting for you right now as part of Sea Of Thieves' April update. This is a big one folks, I don't think there's been an update with this amount of stuff since Tall Tales were introduced for the game's anniversary last year. There's none of…

Soon you’ll be able to revive your mates in Sea Of Thieves

The winds are always changing, which is especially true in Sea Of Thieves where they always seem to be blowing right into your face instead of the direction you're attempting to sail. Rare have posted a video explaining some new pirate features coming later this month in greater detail. Your crewmates will be able to revive you when you drop to 0 health instead of…

Sea Of Thieves’ April update will bring cats in adorable pirate outfits

Sea Of Thieves' Ships Of Fortune update is just around the corner, inviting players to join up with their favourite trading companies to earn loads of extra gold and reputation. For the more "traditional pirates" amongst us, a brand new trader has emerged that I think you're going to like - The Reaper's Bones. These are the evil-looking folks that have been hanging out on…

Sea Of Thieves is setting sail for Steam

After two years on Microsoft's janky Windows 10 Store, Sea Of Thieves is now officially headed to Steam. Rare last night announced that a Steam release for their multiplayer pirate sandbox is "coming soon", and yes Steamers will be able to play with pirates on the Microsoft Store as well as Xbox One. I know many grumbled about the gaping lack of things to do…

Sea Of Thieves shipwrecks are great and I can’t believe players used to ignore them

I adore the shipwrecks in Sea Of Thieves. There's just something so thrilling about pulling up besides one and diving in to claim some sunken treasure. Maybe it's the fear of sharks lurking about, ready to strike, or perhaps it's the excitement of never knowing what sort of booty these lost vessels might contain.You'll understand then, dear reader, why I'm baffled to learn I'm in…

Beware this gnarly Sea Of Thieves bug that could wreck hours of questing

There are many ways to lose quest progress in Sea Of Thieves, whether it be an attack by the kraken or fellow pirates, but a bug is definitely the biggest bummer way to go home empty-handed. There's a nasty new respawning bug that can set you back hours in the final Tall Tale quest in the Shores Of Gold story. Rare are aware of the…

Tread carefully over flame traps in Sea Of Thieves’ next update

We didn't start the fire. It's always burning since the wheel's been turning. Oh yes, the flames rage on in Sea Of Thieves. Last month's update added that flamin' angry chest and ashen skeletons and whatnot. Next week, the silly pirates game is getting another update and yup, things are still hot around here. This time 'round it's fire traps, a knockback bomb, and new…

Chain shot cannonballs are coming to Sea Of Thieves and they look brutal

The next addition to the Sea Of Thieves arsenal is going to be a doozy - they're introducing chain shot cannonballs to take out your enemies' masts. These projectiles are pretty self explanatory, they're basically two cannonballs connected by a chain. When you hit a ship hull with these you aren't going to do huge amounts of damage, but if you nail the capstan, masts…

Listen to the screams of the man who voiced the angry chest in Sea Of Thieves

This week, Sea Of Thieves introduced some very angry treasure chests - appropriately named Chests Of Rage. These chests are pretty needy, if you don't pay attention to them they blow up, engulfing everything around them in fire, and letting out a hearty scream as they do so. As it turns out, that scream is the voice of none-other than the game's award-winning composer, Robin…

Sea Of Thieves’ new flaming chests are live in today’s update

Sea Of Thieves' monthly content update has dropped anchor and it's a hot one. We already got a look at some of the changes from Rare's Crews Of Rage preview and now it's all officially live. There are hot potato chests that explode, sizzling skeletons, and a lot of other stuff that's too hot to handle.

It's nearly time for the monthly Sea Of Thieves content update and Rare have shared a few details on what to expect for February. In their commitment to everything being on fire all the time now, a new flaming variety of cursed chest will threaten your deck with flames. They are also finally (finally) letting pirates change their faces.

Feature: The hurdiest of times, the gurdiest of times

How to reason with a kraken in Sea Of Thieves

Let us cast our minds back to pirate times now, as we embark on brand new adventures set in the sober nautical history simulation called Sea Of Thieves. In this intermittent chronicle, we'll be following the story of Captain Bartholomew Humungus, played by Nate, as he attempts to go down in history by completing the legendary 12 Labours of Pirate Hercules (which tasks Nate has,…
