The first hint at Sea of Thieves Season 4's theme came from Rare's art and models page onwhere they can share the teams work from Sea of Thieves with the community. According to a Reddit post, a model of a Manta ray was added and then quickly pulled.
After much speculation, the developer has finally unveiled Season 4's contents, confirming that we're going deep under the sea.
Players can uncover the secrets of six Siren Shrines, each with its own challenges, or hunt for underwater treasuries that pit them against "an onslaught of undersea enemies." There's plenty of plunder to be found if you succeed, including valuable coral treasures sought by the game's trading companies.
Coral-encrusted message bottles grant new voyages that task you with finding the Breath of the Sea, but you'll also find new Commendations to pursue, alongside 100 levels' worth of rewards available to all players at no cost, and 11 Pirate Emporium items available through the premium Plunder Pass.
