Sea of Thieves Haunted Shores Update is now available for download

Microsoft and Rare have announced that the June free monthly update for Sea of Thieves, Haunted Shores, is available for download. This update is now out for all Sea of Thieves players across Windows 10 PC, Steam and with Xbox Game Pass.

In Haunted Shores, players will have to sink the phantom fleets as they’re summoned through the rift between worlds before facing off against Flameheart’s flagship, the infamous Burning Blade.

This update also introduces a whole new type of encounter, Haunted Shores. Players can engage carefully to avoid their Phantom Cannonballs, the ghostly mines dropped in their wake.

Furthermore, the Order of Souls now offer permanent new Voyages for pirates at rank 25 and above.  For the duration of the Haunted Shores update, your old friend Duke will also offer an exclusive Voyage.

The Sea of Thieves Haunted Shores Update also adds new Commendations. By progressing through these Commendations, players can earn the Ghost Captain Sails and the dreaded Burning Blade Sails.

Not only that, but a total of 40 gamerscore is available to earn from this update. These achievements will remain in the game indefinitely.

Lastly, the Sea of Thieves Haunted Shores patch brings a number of gameplay improvements. For instance, it improves Non-Verbal Communication and Non-Verbal Radial Keybinds. It also enhances Barrel Inventory Mouse Navigation.
