Sea of Thieves ‘long awaited and a little late The season 7 update is almost here, and Rare is detailing its big new Captaincy addition in a new trailer.
In case you haven’t heard, Sea of Thieves will let you buy and own ships when season 7 goes live on Thursday, August 4th. We’ve known that ever since Rare unexpectedly revealed the new feature back in non-E3 times, but now we know exactly how operation of them all, including train prices and how you can customize them.
First things first, buying a sloop will give you 250,000 gold, while brigantines will cost 375,000 gold and galleons will cost 500,000 gold. Once you become a proud shipowner, you can decide to name your ship and display it prominently. However, it’s best to think twice about what you want to name your ship, as renaming it will cost you money in real life.
Ship ownership not only gives you a durable ship to carry you across the servers – it also opens up tons of new customization options. While the old loan ship only allowed you to customize the exterior of the ship, you can now also embellish areas of the house. For example, you can customize the interior furniture like the Captain’s bed, table, rug, and drapes, and add trinkets like pictures and trophies to the walls. Just make sure to move them back into place as they shift around due to intense battles.
All of these decorations will stay on your ship from session to session, but so will any damage you take on your adventure. Thankfully, you can get it restored by Scarlett in exchange for gold instead of patching all the holes yourself.
There’s a new progression system that includes different Milestones that you can unlock by participating in all aspects of the game – from the number of days you’ve spent at sea to the number of times you’ve repaired the ship your boat – and that will give you even more ways to customize your boat.
Season 7 will also add new special cruises exclusively for captains designed to give you more control over how you play. For example, some Captain’s Journeys will be short and sweet, tasking you with finding treasure on one map, while others will involve a number of different and time-intensive activities. than to complete.
The new Sovereign Company will make life easier for Captains by giving them a single location to do all different types of loot, so you can finally stop asking teammates where you are supposed to sell Crate of Fine Teas. Can you tell me I’m particularly excited about this feature?
In the end, Captain’s Logbook records everything you and the crew did during your session, but if you are sunk by another crew they will be able to steal your log and sell it at Reaper’s Hideout for gold and fame.
That includes it for Captaincy’s features. I’m excited about how it can make progress even more rewarding by allowing you to keep your own customizable ships in sessions instead of scuttling them at the end of the night.
