New Storyline, Side Quests, Locations and More
As a result of an unlikely partneship between Rare and Disney, the DLC is regarded as the “biggest and most impactful” one Sea Of Thieves has ever received. The new adventure brings to the game tons of new content players has always dreamed of, including new tales and quests. To demonstrate that, Rare developers revealed we can expect a new storyline that ranges between 8 to 12 hours of gameplay.

Hence, enemy players won’t be able to ambush your ship while you’re on one of the new special locations. Two of them are the Sea Of Damned and The Suken, which brings new secrets and enemies.
Despite not allowing PvP in certain moments, the new campaign won’t be a cakewalk. While vising those new areas, you’ll meet brand new enemies who reside in the sea. Disparetely from the well-known skeletons, the new Ocean Crawlers are able to board the ship and attack your crew. Therefore, you should watch the water closely! It should be made clear the Crawlers will appear on the rest of the map as well.

The main one, Jack Sparrow, will be one the first AI companions ever featured in Sea Of Thieves. He will stroll arround the deck of your ship and let you know when the vessel is running out of supplies. Despite the fact you can’t control Jack, you’ll be allowed to disguise just like him. Sparrow’s skin is available for everyone, with no real currency needed, in the restocked emporium.
Along with him, the story introduces a new character, the Cursed Captain, a skull who’ll give hints and share details of the lore with the team.
