Sea of Thieves, the online pirate game by Rare Studio under Xbox, has been available since 2018 and boasts a staggering player base of 30 million people. After 5 years of service, Rare has announced the introduction of a new mode called Safer Seas, catering to solo players (PvE) or those who prefer playing exclusively with close friends in separate servers. No longer will players have to worry about the interference of others as they fish or quietly sail their ships alone.
The Safer Seas mode comes alongside the content update of Season Ten, distinct from the previous mode now referred to as High Seas. One significant difference is that solo players will earn less in-game currency and reputation (as the risk is comparatively lower) and will have access to less content than the High Seas mode, which remains the main focus of the development team, aiming to create a social experience. The update will also introduce a Guild system and an event called Skull of Siren Song, where players can compete for a unique treasure only available in that server.
The Season Ten update is set to release on October 19th for both PC and Xbox platforms.
TL;DR: Sea of Thieves, a popular pirate game, is introducing a new mode called Safer Seas for solo players or those wanting to play with close friends in separate servers. This mode offers less risk, rewards, and content compared to the main High Seas mode. Season Ten update, featuring a Guild system and the unique Skull of Siren Song event, launches on October 19th for PC and Xbox.
