Yesterday, Sea of Thieves received its fourth free major update so far. This update, called "Shrouded Spoils," improves some of the new content added at the end of September by the "Forsaken Shores" update, but it also comes with a few new elements.

The highlights of the "Shrouded Spoils" update include the following:

  • a fog that can appear suddenly and hide various dangers both at sea and on land
  • improved skeleton ships, as well as a new "Battle of the Devil's Roar" skirmish
  • cannons, wheels, and capstans that can be used to customize the ships
  • new Pirate Legend Commendations for Athena Levels 1-10
  • six new skeleton forts
  • new Merchant Alliance items, including Mermaid Statue Gems, the explosive Mega-keg, and the Crate of Ancient Bone Dust
  • increased spawn rate for the Kraken
  • new Megalodon variants

Just as the three previous such updates, "Shrouded Spoils" is freely available to all Sea of Thieves players who purchased this title on Windows 10 or across the Xbox One family of devices.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
