Sea of Thieves Cursed Sails free update coming July 31
The upcoming free campaign and content update for Sea of Thieves is called "Cursed Sails" and will go live on July 31. The three-week campaign will bring skeleton ships to challenge players on the seas and bring terror to outposts. Fortunately, those who will not be able to take part in the campaign will be able to enjoy the new content in the future as well.

Sea of Thieves has been around for a while, so the time has come for its first summer update. Scheduled to arrive on July 31, the free update for Sea of Thieves called "Cursed Sails" will debut as the biggest update that this title has received so far.

In addition to the new AI-driven skeleton ship enemies, the update also promises to bring a brigantine ship for three-player crews. According to Joe Neate, Executive Producer at Rare, "Players will now be able to battle terrifying new skeleton ships, set sail in the new three-player Brigantine ship and form Alliances with other players to take on bigger challenges and share greater rewards."

The new content that comes as a part of the update will be introduced through a special time-limited campaign that is scheduled to last for three weeks. However, all the features that come with this campaign will be available for Sea of Thieves players who won't be able to join the fun during the time frame mentioned above.

Cursed Sails is a free update for all those who purchased the game across the Xbox One lineup of devices or on Windows 10 PC, but those who gained access to Sea of Thieves as part of Xbox Game Pass can enjoy the new content for free as well. For more details on the things to come, feel free to check out the video below.

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.
