Sea of Thieves – Official Game Guide
Disclaimer – This page will be constantly updated with new guides and content over time.
How Pirate are you? Does your Gamertag strike fear into the hearts of other sailors? What color is your beard? For the first time in a decade, Rare is releasing an original title: the sail-raising, swashbuckling, grog-chugging, booty-looting pirate simulator, Sea of Thieves.
If you feel like you’ve run your schooner aground, or find yourself stranded on a rock in the middle of the sea, we’ll help you find your way back to the nearest grog shop. Here you can find our hand-charted map to action, encounters, exploration, teamwork, and becoming a legend.
Whether you prefer to use a cutlass, pistol, rifle, blunderbuss, or keep your distance on a cannon, this is where you’ll find tips to turn those pesky sharks belly-up, and send your enemies to the Ferry of the Damned. There’s a lot of treasure out there, and just as many ways to lose it. (Articles will be added at a later date)
Trading companies on outposts, intimidating creatures of the deep, legendary captains of ships long ago, this is where you’ll get a hand (or a hook) learning about the history that Rare has hidden throughout the world of Sea of Thieves. (Articles will be added at a later date)
If you already know how to sail, well, we like the cut of your jib. But if you can’t tell port from starboard, bow from stern, or the orlop deck from the poop deck, we’ve got you covered. Having difficulty finding that tiny island? We’ve got the coordinates. (More Articles will be added at a later date)
We know it’s tempting to lock your crew in the brig, or mutiny the crew member who steered the ship into a giant rock and sunk your loot-filled galleon, but maybe if you learned how to work together, you could be sitting on more gold than you know what to do with (buy more grog is the answer, by the way). Here, we’ve got some tips on delegating tasks among the crew and having fun playing your hurdy-gurdy while completely tanked. (Articles will be added at a later date)
Becoming a Legend
Here we’ve compiled tips on cashing in on voyages to earn gold and reputation. Whether you’re selling a chest, escorting merchant cargo, or head-hunting legends, we’ll help you on your way to finding Athena’s Fortune. If you’re more interested in Sea of Thieves as a Robinson Crusoe simulator, skip this section. (Articles will be added at a later date)
