Sea of ​​Thieves: Season 2 starts soon - that's what you can expect

Sea of ​​Thieves

Sea of ​​Thieves fans won't have to wait long for Season 2 to start. As the Rare team has now announced, the new season starts on April 15, 2021.

In line with the announcement, the creators have also published a short teaser, which does not yet reveal much about the content of Season 2 . In the video, for the time being, players only get a glimpse of new cosmetic items and another skin for a ship. Another highlight is an emote that will be available in the pirate game from next week. Accordingly, players will soon have the opportunity to conjure up a barrel and hide in it. This would make it easier for crews to plan ambushes and surprise opposing pirates in the future. Below we have included the Sea of ​​Thieves Season 2 teaser (buy now € 37.95).

Earlier this year, Rare introduced fundamental changes to the game. In the future, new content will only be added via seasonal updates. Previously, Sea of ​​Thieves was always expanded with additional content on a monthly basis. Among other things, the creators also introduced a Plunder Pass that will provide you with new items every season. In just under three months, players can unlock a total of 100 levels. In addition to a free version, there is also a premium model of the Plunder Pass with further exclusive rewards. More details on Season 2 should be available soon.

Sea of Thieves Season 2 has a new emote that lets you be a sneaky sailor

Sea of Thieves is bringing new booty with a second season pass dropping next week.

Rare teased the arrival of the new plunder pass in a short video. It didn't show much, except for a damn nice-looking red ship set and some new cosmetics. More interestingly, though, was a new emote that lets you hop inside a barrel.

As a potential tactic for hiding from your fellow pirates, I don't know how useful it'll be. People have ship layouts pretty memorised at this point, and I feel like a rogue barrel is going to stick out like a sore thumb. It might fare better elsewhere, but I think there'll be some eagle-eyed pirates seeking out fake barrels for a while. Using them to prank your friends by scaring them shitless, though? The new emote is going to be priceless.

I fell off Sea of Thieves pretty hard, but a fresh season may tempt me to come back. After all, I'm sure my buds miss me constantly playing the accordion absolutely pissed off my face. Wonder if I can play my instrument while hiding inside a barrel.

Sea of Thieves Season 2 will release April 15. Rare introduced battle passes to the game back in January, shifting away from previous monthly content updates.
