Sea of Thieves Merchant Alliance guide: How to level up fast and find your goods
ALL Cursed Cannonballs RANKED (Worst to Best) Sea of Thievesseason episode
Accompanying our team-selected Game of the Year awards for , individual members of the PC Gamer team will each discuss one of their favorites from the last 12 months. We'll post a new personal pick alongside our awards until ends. In my last pirating session with Captain Livingston, we loaded our crow's nest with at least 10 chests—according to our pirate rules, that's where you have to put loot—and of course were attacked by a kraken on the way back to port. It was a scary fight because we had so much to lose, but all we did is aim our cannons at its tentacles and run below deck now and then to repair. When we finally killed it and limped to an outpost, completely out of cannon balls, we carefully approached at half-sail to anchor as close to the buyer as possible, easing the next bit of work: carrying each chest off the ship one-by-one to sell it. The whole thing felt too laborious, as if we really were working and, somehow, all our map reading, chest digging-upping, and tentacle shooting was mining bitcoin for someone.
S oon after the online pirate adventure Sea of Thieves was released in March, it had become a war zone. The game sees small groups of players board ships and setsail on the open ocean in search of treasure, but every time you spotted another boat, the result would be a fight to the death, cannons blazing and swords swirling. Games developer Rare had hoped that some encounters would be peaceful and cooperative, but the innate competitiveness of the online multiplayer arena seemed to have won out. Player ships made their way to Shark Bait Cove to receive a time-limited challenge from a hoary old monster-hunter who had lost both legs to a gigantic sea creature, and now wanted players to work together to find and destroy it. So they did. Then they went off together to track down and slaughter the terrifying Megalodon. It was the scenario Rare had dreamed of.
A Sea of Thieves Merchant Alliance guide will be handy to give you a few tips as you chase chickens and round up pigs to make a fast buck. While Sea of Thieves might tell you to just scout a few islands and grab some animals, there's more to it than that. Especially if you want to make life easy. You have to find an island with animals, have the crates, coops or baskets to carry them in, and even make sure you have the right breed. Out guide covers it all and means you'll be levelling up with the Merchants and making gold quickly and easily.

Players who have been eagerly awaiting the introduction of cursed cannonballs into the wild can finally begin toying with their enemies thanks to Sea of Thieves version 1. This patch has a whole lot of changes coming to the world, including a drastic overhaul of the way barrels function, a new Bilge Rat adventure, and a new emerging threat in the form of skeleton ships. While this adds an additional step to gathering supplies or filling a ship, it allows barrels to contain more than one item. Rare has stated they are listening to community feedback, so we could see further refinement of this new system.
Sea of Thieves: how Rare silenced the cannons and brought peace to the seas
Following an extended four week run , the Sea of Thieves Cursed Sails event has come to a close. But to spice up the three-week break until Forsaken Shores hits the deck , Rare has introduced a brand new Bilge Rat Adventure with this week's 1.
Sea of Thieves is still full of potential
So far, Rare has been relatively quiet about the unfortunate but mostly hilarious incident. However, during an in-game Sea of Thieves developer livestream yesterday, executive producer Joe Neate finally explained just how things had managed to get so lewd. According to a falteringly straight-faced Neate who was being dogged by a lime green skeleton player with a telescopic dong at the time, making for two priceless bugs in a single livestream , Rare accidentally overwrote a number of animations for two of Sea of Thieves' eight body sizes when compiling its latest build. One of these was the animation that plays when pirates hold out an equipped spyglass, resulting in the game thinking that players were actually carrying a treasure chest. When everything combined, affected players attempting to wield the spyglass were rendered with their clenched arms proudly apart, giant telescopic appendages thrusting toward the sky. Rare has confirmed that the bug will be fixed in Sea of Thieves' next update, scheduled to arrive tomorrow - so enjoy it while you can. It also includes a heap of other additions, and changes - oh, and has inadvertently given players glorious spyglass dongs.
