Rare Releases New Teaser for Upcoming 'Cursed Sails' Update for Sea of Thieves

The second major content update for Sea of Thieves has received its first teaser video alongside a release date slated for the end of this month.

July 17, 2018

We’ve known for a bit that Rare’s second major content update for Sea of Thieves was scheduled to arrive at some point this month, but now we know for sure when to expect it.

Rare revealed today that the next update for Sea of Thieves entitled Cursed Sails will be arriving on the final day of this month — July 31. As for just what this new update will entail, Rare described it as so:

Cursed Sails sees the dead setting sail for war against the living, so sharpen your steel, stock up on bananas and prepare to meet terrifying skeleton ships in battle!

While that might not be too much information, Rare also released a new teaser trailer for Cursed Sails that shows the skeleton armies taking to the high seas. This new video doesn’t show anything in terms of gameplay but instead is a good tone piece for what Cursed Sails will bring.


The latest trailer for Cursed Sails can be found at the bottom of this page. When this update rolls out on July 31, it’ll be available on both platforms that Sea of Thieves resides on, Xbox One and PC, for free. For more on Sea of Thieves, be sure to check out our review from earlier in the year.
