This month’s update ‘Ships of Fortune’ is all about Factions and Fighting. The new update brings a host of upgrades to the factions players are all well acquainted with, Gold Hoarders, Merchant Alliance, Order of Souls, and Athena’s faction.

The New update brings the role of Emissary to factions. By becoming an Emissary, that faction will provide boosted rewards and a new range of fun cosmetics. Becoming an Emissary will require “a significant donation”, and then players will be able to earn one of five Grades via that faction’s standard gameplay loop. If a player has a high Grade, selling loot to that faction will come with a significant multiplier for an even bigger cash-out and new cosmetics. For instance, Emissaries of the Order of Souls will be able to earn new, spooky ships.

That all sounds great, but the real update is in the form of a new faction! The new faction is called The Reaper’s Bones. The Reaper’s Bones will target Emissaries of other factions, leading to more PvE combat (is that REALLY possible?).

The arena has also received a bit of an update, looking to inject some life into a system that has seen a lag as of late. Players won’t be battling over a variety of treasures now; instead, there will be one chest and one cash-in location. Each match will now last 15 minutes, down from 24.

Lastly, a few more exciting, small-scale changes (this is the stuff I love!). The first is bringing a small window where crewmates can resurrect a downed crewmate. Think revival in The Division. This means players won’t always have to wait to break out of Davey Jones Locker on the Ferry of Souls. Lastly, but certainly not least, FREAKING CATS will be added to the market. Wildcats, Ragamuffins, and Maus will be available for purchase.

Sea of Thieves’ Ships of Fortune update is set to launch on April 22 for all players across Xbox One and PC. It is a free update; Sea of Thieves can also be play via Xbox Game Pass.
