Or tomorrow, sometimes it's hard to figure out conversions and all that. But hey, you're an Aussie games site and that's why we come to you? Okay fine, after server maintenance and the update the rollout of Shrouded Spoils should go live overnight at roughly 1am AEST. Making it a mix of tonight and tomorrow. Anyway, this a big one because in addition to the new and expanded weather system this update brings many of the most wanted items to the world.
Including the ability to further customise your chip with different canons and wheels. Very cool. Plus the world is expanding with six new Skeleton Forts alongside Skeleton Ship improvements and the introduction of a Skeleton Sloop. Even the Kraken is getting a re-design alongside giving players actual reward drops and commendations for taking out any of the big threats - including the Meg. Which is also getting an overhaul with new visual variants.
And all of this is wrapped up in the new weather effect, fog. Which not only adds an eerie quality to sailing between islands but adds to the challenge of dealing with unfriendly pirates and other threats. Oh, and the Merchant Alliance are getting more items out in the world to find in addition to the re-appearance of special Mermaid Statues holding treasure.
Shrouded Spoils is the fourth content expansion so far for Sea of Thieves, in what has been a pretty impressive bit of post-launch support from Rare and Microsoft.
