Sea of Thieves’ latest update is here, bringing with it the appropriately Halloween-y Festival of the Damned – alongside a variety of limited-time treats, new face paint, and, most importantly of all, coloured ship lanterns.
All told, the Festival of the Damned is one of Sea of Thieves’ simpler Bilge Rat Adventure offerings – which, for those unfamiliar, is the name given to Rare’s bi-weekly mini-events that come between large-scale content updates.
Essentially, this latest event is themed around death. There’s a new Well of Fates to be found on the Ferry of the Damned, and its flame will change colour depending on the form of grisly demise that brings you aboard the ghost ship. Get killed by a shark, for instance, and a blue flame will be yours. These coloured flames can then be carried back to the land of the living – and used to light beacons hidden across the world.
