The Sea of Thieves period 8 launch day has actually been established for November 22, Rare has actually introduced.
In a tweet (opens up in brand-new tab), Rare introduced a stream that’ll expose the material in the brand-new period along with the cumulative choice made by the Sea of Thieves neighborhood in the present Adventure, Return of the Damned. That stream will certainly occur on Sea of Thieves’ main Twitch channel (opens up in brand-new tab) on Friday, November 18 at 8am PT / 11am ET / 7pm GMT, a day after Return of the Damned finishes its run.
Although all we have is the launch day now, it’s risk-free to presume Sea of Thieves period 8 will certainly be enormously affected by the choice of the Return of the Damned, which asks gamers to select in between exterior siding with Belle or the Servant of the Flame. If extra gamers elect to side with Belle, the long-prophesized return of Flameheart will certainly be prevented and also Pendragon will certainly be conserved, most likely ending up being the primary bad guy of period 8. On the various other hand, if Servant of the Flame obtains even more ballots, Flameheart will certainly be reanimated finally to come to be the brand-new period’s main villain while Pendragon will certainly be condemned to a dark gap.
In enhancement to a brand-new huge poor, anticipate Sea of Thieves period 8 to introduce a number of brand-new gameplay and also lifestyle functions, brand-new Adventures and also Mysteries, a brand-new Plunder Pass, lots of brand-new incentives to unlock, and also possibly a lot more.
Notably, we understand from a recent podcast appearance (opens up in brand-new tab) from Sea of Thieves innovative supervisor Mike Chapman that “Season 8 is focused firmly on PvP” although “that feature set will have a knock-on effect to PvE, in a way that we actually hope will take some of the heat off PvE players.”
