Sea of Thieves is basically a pirate simulator. Exploring towns, raiding, looting, etc. Just a few months ago, it was made available on Steam. Not only that, but it also got a crossplay feature. Read more about it here. Now, Sea of Thieves is getting its new DLC called Vaults of the Ancients. And guess what? It is coming very soon too. By soon we mean less than a week soon. September 9, 2020 is when this new DLC is releasing for Sea of Thieves. Let’s see what new are we getting in terms of content with this new DLC.
The developers already showcased some of the content that will be coming with this update in last week’s gamescom IGN stream. Like the addition of dogs and a new voyage. Now, an absolutely new video was uploaded by the developers regarding the new update. Take a look at it here:
The video goes into complete detail about the new quality of life changes, the plot regarding the new content, and even some Mysterious notes. Mysterious notes have been introduced to recommend players on what to do. These are basically notes that would be brought to you at the start of the session so you can decide on what to do. Let’s talk a bit about the plot, since that is what we believe is the most interesting part of this new DLC.
Aaron Nilesen, Game Designer of Sea of Thieves gave us a huge deal of information regarding the content. According to him, after the events of Shore Of gold, the Gold Hoarders needed a place to store it all. And, as you might have guessed it, the Ancient Vaults are where they stored it. The company is concerned about the safety of these vaults, so they have tasked us (the players) to go and find the keys to unlock the vaults. Since you are a pirate, you might not want to return the key. In which case, you would unlock the vaults for yourself and gain access to immense wealth and riches. However, there is another treasure hidden in these vaults, that the Gold Hoarders never wanted for us to find. A Secret Treasue! To find that you would have to find certain medallions in a limited time frame and then gain access to a puzzle solution. Using the puzzle solution on a secret vault, you would get access to the highly mysterious treasure.
Sounds really interesting, right? Well, it did sound so for us at least.
