The Haunted Shores update is live for Sea of Thieves and it adds ghost ships, new shanties, and more.
Fleets of ghost ships have invaded Seas of Thieves with the latest free content update, Haunted Shores.
These ships need to be taken on, but beware as they are rather formidable what with the sprits fired from the cannons and not to mention the ghost mines. Should you defeat the fleet, you will be rewarded with loot, but you will also have to take on Flameheart’s ship, Burning Blade. Just be prepared.
New Commendations have been added to the Order of Souls and will chart your progress against Ghost Ships. By progressing through these Commendations, you can earn Ghost Captain Sails and the dreaded Burning Blade Sails.
Alongside the ships, there are new shanties, and now the Item Radial will expand to a new menu allowing you to select which shanty to play. Several new ones are now available including an exclusive shanty for Pirate Legends.
Those who play in Japan, East Asia, South Africa, and the Southeast also have new dedicated servers.
Rare has also updated the non-verbal communication system. The Radial has been redesigned to provide "a much wider range of phrases separated into categories." The top category still provides fast access to chat and alerts, while the second category is for strategy and the third offers "contextual phrases specific to an item or ship interaction."
