Rare has launched a new free update, dubbed Haunted Shores, for the pirate sandbox Sea of Thieves. This update brings in the form of phantom ghost ships. Such ghost ships are often more aggressive than their ancestor and at enemies ship, they can fire wraiths.

Such frail yet dangerous ships are protecting Captain Flameheart, aboard the flagship of Burning Sword. Players will win special Damned prizes and cosmetic bonuses from the experience.
Players can wage a two-way battle with the ghost fleet. The first is noticing Captain Flameheart’s skull in the skies; this demonstrates he’s targeting an island, and gamers can move forward to protect it from his armada. The second is level 25 or higher with the Order of Souls, which will require players to buy a trip to find and avoid a fleet of ghosts.
Sea of Thieves has been there for a few years now but its latest Steam update has opened it up to a whole new user culture. Rare has also published a new player guide to help beginners learn their sea legs quickly.
Finally, the upgrade to the Haunted Shores carries lots of fresh loot to purchase with it. There are a variety of new emotes, including a free one, a complete Blighted Set of ship apparel, and animal costumes. The Treasure Curse Collectors are a lot cuter overall.
Expect another major Sea of Thieves update soon, till then enjoy the latest content for Haunted Shores.
