Sea of Thieves celebrates 5 years with Season 9 launch and new Deluxe Edition

Posted by:Robert Collins

Pirate-themed online action adventure game Sea of Thieves turns five years old on March 20. And to mark the occasion developer Rare has released a new Deluxe Edition to coincide with both the anniversary and the launch of Season 9.  Let’s break it all down below.

What to expect in Sea of Thieves Season 9

The ninth season brings 100 levels of progression and rewards to be claimed by increasing Renown. The optional Plunder Pass adds even more bounty to be had throughout the season. Also added in Season 9 are new Chests of Fortune—which can only be claimed by conquering a Fort of Fortune—and Fates of Fortune cosmetic set pieces.

Those who’ve achieved Pirate Legend status (all 1 million+ of you) can embark on new Voyages that will, of course, lead to new bounty. But all Sea of Thieves players will reap benefits from the new season with figurative boatloads of improvements, which you can check out in the release notes.

All-new Sea of Thieves: 2023 Edition

Celebrate five years since Sea of Thieves’ launch with this special edition of the game, which includes a copy of Sea of Thieves itself with all permanent content added since launch, plus a 10,000 gold bonus and a selection of Hunter cosmetics. The Hunter Cutlass, Pistol, Compass, Hat, Jacket and Sails will ensure you cut a formidable figure as you set sail for adventure!—From the Xbox Store description.
