New features[edit | edit source]

Ghost Ships[edit | edit source]

Main article: Ghost Ships

Ghost Ships are a new enemy Ship addition to Sea of Thieves. These Ships can currently be encountered during Order of Souls Ghost Ship Voyages or during the new Ghost Fleet World Event. These ships shoot Phantom Cannonballs, powerful Wraith Cannonballs and leave behind Ghostly Mines. They usually appear in large groups, but are in turn quite fragile, only taking a few Cannonball hits to defeat.

Ghost Ship Voyages[edit | edit source]

The Order of Souls now offer a second type of Bounty Voyage, the Ghost Ship Voyage, for any Pirates that are above Reputation Rank 25 with the company. These Voyages see Players defeating Ghost Ships and a Captain's Ship for ghostly Bounty Skulls.

During the Haunted Shores Content Update, Duke will also offer a cost-free exclusive Mercenary Voyage to take on the new Ghost Ships:

Ghost Fleet World Event[edit | edit source]

Main article: Ghost Fleet

Also called the Battle with Burning Blade, this new World Event sees players face Captain Flameheart, the Burning Blade and his Fleet of Ghost Ships. This Ghost Ship Battle will join the other exclusive World Event pool, signified in the world by a massive ghostly Flameheart. The World Event takes place around Islands and spawns a large number of Ghost Ships around it. The World Event ends with a boss wave where players can take on Flameheart's ghostly ship, the Burning Blade and its retinue of Ashen Dragon Ships for plenty ghostly Treasure.

New Shanties[edit | edit source]

Main article: Shanties

Along with the original selection of Shanties, 7 new Shanties are also available, including an exclusive shanty for Pirate Legends! When equipping an Instrument, the Equipment Radial Menu now expands to a new menu allowing players to select which shanty to play.

New Events[edit | edit source]

Main article: Events

Ashen Expeditions – Tuesdays are heating up as crews set sail into the Devil’s Roar! Brave volcanic destruction in the Sea of Thieves' most perilous region and earn double the usual rewards for handing in Ashen Treasure between 00:00-23:59 UTC. The value of all Stronghold items will also be boosted.

New items[edit | edit source]

Ghostly Treasure[edit | edit source]

With the introduction of Ghost Ships, players can now earn new Ghostly versions of regular Treasure for Gold Hoarders, Merchant Alliance and Order of Souls (or Reaper's Bones). These ghostly items are signified by phantoms circling around them when dropped by Ghostly Ships.

Ghost Cannonballs[edit | edit source]

The Ghost Ships shoot three types of new ghostly Cannonballs. Player Crews can also get their hands on these Cannonballs when they defeat the Ghost Fleet World Event and claim the Cannonball Crate of the Damned.

New Cosmetics[edit | edit source]

Ghost Sails[edit | edit source]

Two new Sails Cosmetics have been added to the game, themed after the Ghost Ship Encounters. These Sails can be purchased from Duke during the first month of the update and require the completion of new Order of Souls Commendations to unlock.

New Black Market Cosmetics[edit | edit source]
