You can become a ghost or a skeleton by participating in Sea of Thieves’ new faction PvP in Season 8.
Today Microsoft and Rare revealed the content and features of the upcoming Season 8 of the popular Game-as-a-Service title Sea of Thief.
The biggest new feature is faction-based PvP, which gives you (temporarily) a site for on-demand battles between the Guardians of Fortune, loyal to the Pirate Lord and his allies, and the Servants of the Flame, who have sworn to Flameheart can choose.
Speaking of which, today we also learned that Flameheart’s faction won the battle that started with the final adventure and resulted in Pendragon being banished to the Sea of the Damned.
After optionally choosing your side via the Hourglass of Destiny, you can continue your adventures or actively hunt down and sink enemy ships.
You can also go head-to-head with an enemy ship using the war map on your captain’s table. Your ship will literally dive under the sea as you are transported to an open world battlefield where you face off against your opponent. If you leave the area before your enemy is defeated, you will sink, but if you win the duel, the Hourglass of Destiny will become more valuable.
When you’re ready to end the fight, you can sell your hourglass at an outpost for gold. Fighting also earns you allegiance, which you can use to level up your faction. Multiple wins in a row increase your win streak, and when you reach four you become a faction champion and are marked on the map for enemies to challenge.
Defeating an opposing faction champion will earn you slightly more allegiance and a lot more hourglass value than usual, and you’ll earn even more allegiance if you fight with treasure on board (the more treasure, the more allegiance).
Of course, you can earn unique rewards by building up loyalty levels, and at 100 you can gain access to secret areas of Athena’s Fortune Tavern or the Reaper’s Lair.
In addition to a number of exclusive rewards found in these areas, you can undergo a ritual to become undead (either a ghost or a skeleton, depending on the faction).
You can find the video below and see all of the above. The new season starts on November 22nd.
Sea of Thieves is currently available for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Cloud Gaming. You can also download it through Game Pass.
