Sea of Thieves Adds a New Figurehead Celebrating Banjo-Kazooie’s 20th Anniversary
Sea of Thieves’ regular weekly update has arrived, bringing a special limited-time figurehead to celebrate the 20th birthday of Rare’s platform classic, Banjo-Kazooie.
The Bird and Bear Figurehead, doesn’t feature the iconic duo directly, but instead pays homage via a wood-carved grizzled brown bear, paired with an avian blue and red shield. It’s a relatively subtle cameo, but one that sits well with the Sea of Thieves’ distinct piratical aesthetic.
This limited-time Bird and Bear figurehead will be available from the shipwright at all outposts throughout July, and will cost 1,998 gold.
Also, in today’s Sea of Thieves update, there’s few new stuff – mainly as it comes midway through the game’s current Gunpowder Skeletons limited-time event. It does, however, offer some improvements to the game (ships now rock in response to cannonball impact for added immersion, for instance), as well as bug fixes, all detailed in the latest patch notes.
Next week’s update should bring a third limited-time Bilge Rat Adventure (The Sunken Curse, which follows on from Skeleton Thrones and Gunpowder Skeletons), while Cursed Sails – Sea of Thieves’ second major content update, adding the three-man Brigantine, a roaming ghost ship AI threat, and more – is expected to arrive toward the end of July.
