Sea Of Thieves Into The Wilds

Sea of Thieves is starting the year strong with a new limited-time adventure, improved matchmaking, and shorter PvP queues. From now until February 2, Sea of Thieves players can join in on a new PvE adventure, 'The Secret Wilds'. This new adventure continues where the last one, ‘The Rogue’s Legacy’, left off; so players won’t want to miss the story's continuation.

This new update is also improving the matchmaking system that was first introduced in Season 8 as part of the game’s new PvP. One way matchmaking has been improved is the addition of same-faction battles when matchmaking is taking too long. This means that there should always be a battle available for players. Rare has also increased the number of PvP arenas from 6 to 50. This will hopefully allow for greater variety in competitive game modes.

Interested players can check out the video below for more information on new cosmetics and emotes, like the new Minotaur-inspired outfits or the Lunar New Year dragon costumes for a player's pets.
