Rally your allies: it's time to take the fight to the Dark Brethren and help bring home a celebrated Hunter in Sea of Thieves sixth time-limited Adventure! Venturing into the Sea of the Damned is a risky undertaking even without a band of renegades lying in wait…

A Hunter’s Cry’ (August 18th – September 1st)

  • Keeping Merrick captive in the Sea of the Damned, the Dark Brethren will stop at nothing to retrieve the vital information he holds.
  • Speak to Larinna to begin this new Adventure, then approach the Pirate Lord who will use the Veil of the Ancients to open a path to the Sea of the Damned, allowing your rescue attempt to begin.
  • To stand the best chance of success, crews should unite and rely on each other to breach the Brethren’s defences. Revealing the route to the top of the Twisted Sea Dog Tavern and overcoming the Phantom resistance will require a combination of sea and land combat, strength and agility, puzzle-solving and teamwork!
  • The Pirate Lord can't keep the gateway open indefinitely as threats from the Sea of the Damned will break through to the Sea of Thieves, so crews must strive to rescue Merrick quickly and efficiently.
  • Pirates who fully complete the Adventure will earn an exclusive Title and a cosmetic reward to serve as a Memento of their quest.

Captains of Adventure

Ship and Pirate Milestone Balancing

  • Following player feedback and internal review, the requirements to progress the Classes of certain Ship and Pirate Milestones have been adjusted. Read more about the changes here.

  • Captains can now consistently discard Voyages from the Captain’s Bookshelf.
