The Seabound Soul is the name of the November 2019 Monthly Content Update, released on November the 20th. The Content Update is divided into two major elements: The Seabound Soul Tall Tale and the Ashen Treasures Mercenary Voyages. In addition, the update introduces the accidentally officially leaked Fire element, new Arena Commendations and items and of course, new additions to the Pirate Emporium and Black Market.

The Seabound Soul Content Update was preceded by the Fort of the Damned Content Update and followed by the December Festival of Giving (2019) Update.

New features

The Seabound Soul Tall Tale

Main article: The Seabound Soul

The crumbling remains of a once-proud Galleon, the Blackwyche, gave Shipwreck Bay its name. Now a ghostly voice calls out from the wreckage. Journey to Shipwreck Bay and seek the captain’s journal in the heart of the Blackwyche to uncover a secret history of binding and betrayal…

Ashen Treasures

Main article: Ashen Treasures

Duke has heard rumours of skeletons gathering ancient Ashen Tomes and keeping them under heavy guard. They are going to great lengths to protect the mysterious pages within, locking the Tomes inside Ashen Chests and keeping the Ashen Keys in isolation. This level of organisation is worrying – something big is brewing!

Time-limited Mercenary Voyages

Ashen Treasure


Main article: Fire

The seas just became a lot more hazardous as this month’s update introduces fire! Whether you’re cooking, sailing through a storm or locked in fierce combat with a rival player or skeleton crew, the threat of your ship (or yourself) bursting into a brilliant ball of flames is now ever-present. You have been warned...

Arena features

Main article: The Arena

Stocked with Firebombs – Looking to cause some havoc in The Arena? Ships will be stocked with firebombs for those pyromaniacs on your crew, and respawning ships will even receive a restocked supply!

Arena Ship Customisation – You will now see a ship customisation chest in the Sea Dog Tavern where you can customise your ship’s wheel, cannons, capstan, and figurehead for the next contest. Your team colour will still be represented on the sails, hull and flag so that you can see rival crews.

Other features

Interactive Campfires

Main article: Campfire

Players can now build and light campfires found on islands across the Sea of Thieves. You’ll need wood in order to rebuild a campfire and your ingenuity to light it. Once lit, you can cook away to your heart’s content, as long as you keep it supplied with wood – but be warned, the smoke emanating from a campfire can be seen by other crews. Protect that Splashtail!

Water Barrel

Main article: Water Barrel

There is now a handy Water Barrel on each ship. Head to the middle deck of the Galleon or bottom deck of the Brigantine and Sloop to find it! Run up to it and interact, pumping some water into the barrel so you can grab it for your bucket to help deal with those fires.

Ammo Crate

Main article: Ammo Crate

Portable Ammo Crates can now be found washed up across the Sea of Thieves. These can hold a stack of 50 ammo for your guns and can be carried to the Ammo Chest found on your ship or on an island to restock the Ammo Crate supply.

Collector's Chests updates

Main article: Collector's Chest

Players will now be rewarded with a Collector’s Chest that contains gold and artefacts inside once they complete any Riddle Quest. This change allows us to increase the rewards players get for completing Riddle Maps to bring them more in line with the rewards players receive for completing X Marks the Spot Voyages. Gold inside the Collector's Chest can be taken immediately and is awarded to the whole crew, but any artefacts found inside are vulnerable and need to be returned to your nearest Outpost!

Players have been scouring the world and uncovering Collector’s Chests, washed up on beaches and even hidden in shipwrecks. Those empty Collector’s Chests will now be packed full of rewards, with a chance to find a range of valuable reward items and even gold that can be collected straight from the chest into your crew’s wallets. They can even be found in Forts, Skeleton Ships, Krakens and Megalodons. Head out there and hunt them out!

Collector’s Chests packed full of rewards and gold have now been added to the vaults of Skeleton Forts. The Fort of the Damned (Raid) even receives a full Collector’s Chest with a range of valuable rewards in addition to all the previous Fort rewards!
