Yesterday, Sea of Thieves celebrated its first anniversary. During the year that passes, the game received four major updates, and now everyone should get ready for the Anniversary Update, which is set to arrive at the end of April. This massive update — the biggest so far — promises to take Sea of Thieves to a whole new level.

Yesterday, Rare's executive producer, Joe Neate, revealed that Sea of Thieves has been around for a year already and a major update that celebrates this milestone will be unleashed on April 30. The Anniversary Update will come after the four major updates, nine time-limited events, and over 30 game updates that were delivered since the release of the game.

According to Neate, the upcoming update is the biggest content update that Sea of Thieves ever received and will come for free to all players on April 30. Described as "a game changer that takes Sea of Thieves to a whole new level," the update will bring the following highlights:

  • The Arena — a new competitive game mode
  • The Hunter's Call — a new trading company that brings more ways to play and progress towards Pirate Legend
  • Tall Tales - Shores of Gold — a collection of quests that invites players "to embark on an epic adventure of love, honour and betrayal"

In addition to the above, Sea of Thieves Anniversary Update will also come with new Mercenary Voyages, new weapons, Sea of Thieves-themed Gamerpics to personalize Xbox Live pages, a special package for those who reached the Pirate Legend status in the first year (a Golden Legendary Tankard, a Golden Legendary Hurdy Gurdy, a Golden Legendary Blunderbuss together with Golden Legendary ship customisations including a sail, hull and figurehead), and more.

The three highlights mentioned earlier will be previewed on Mixer, Twitch, and YouTube starting April 10. For more details, feel free to take a closer look at the official announcement.

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.
