There’s not a lot to report on Season 2 just yet, but – barring minor tweaks to the formula – it should continue the template established by Sea of Thieves’ current, inaugural season, offering a three-month-long schedule of content updates and events, built around a fresh battle pass.
Expect another 100 levels of rewards in the free tier – progressed through by completing various activities while out on the ocean – plus a small selection of Pirate Emporium goodies and exclusive cosmetics that can be unlocked by purchasing the paid Plunder Pass.
Beyond that, Rare isn’t saying much just yet, but today’s Season 2 launch date announcement trailer does offers a few hints of things to come.
Alongside the usual cosmetic additions, the trailer teases a new Skeleton Fort world event – signalled by a menacing red Ritual-Skull-like cloud in the sky – plus a new hide-in-a-barrel emote with some serious PvP potential. And Perhaps we’ll also found out exactly who’s setting up stall around Sea of Thieves’ outposts after three months of in-game teases.
Expect Rare to provide a more thorough breakdown of Seas of Thieves’ second season ahead of its launch on Xbox and PC next Thursday, 15th April.
