As Microsoft’s first party open world pirate adventure game reaches its first year publishing anniversary, studio developers are dropping some boosted benefits to reward players who have stuck by as Sea of Thieves found its footing and relatively flourished.
If you’re on the final straight toward Pirate Legend, you may momentarily cease the chest-stashing, skeleton-bashing grind and rejoice: Sea of Thieves’ inaugural Gold and Glory event unfolds this weekend, offering gold and reputation boosts as part of its first birthday celebrations.
The ‘Gold and Glory Weekend’ festivities begin today, Friday March 15th, 2019 and last until Monday, March 18th, 2019 where players will find trading companies dolling out ridiculous amounts of gold and reputation when pirates rerun chests, skulls, animals and more.
The weekend offerings should be of great interest to those pirates that are teetering edge of greatness awaiting their ‘legendary’ pirate status as Sea of Thieves developers entice players with crunch time bonuses for hitting 50 in all Trading Companies prior to the games one year anniversary next Wednesday, March 20th, 2019.
As of now, it is unclear if the double-bonus handouts extend into the Pirate Legend Athena Voyages, but ideally, the weekend allowances should be game wide.
After the weekend festivities and the first anniversary celebration of the game next week, the SoT crew will be back in the lab retooling its Pioneers initiative and offering a repackaged version called Thieves Insider Programme.
The Insider Program is as advertised, it’ll be a way for fans and players to sign up to test proposed features for the game, long before they are made public.
As with most testing efforts, participants will be under NDA during their time in the Insider Program and to encourage further cooperation SoT developers will be rewarding participants with additional in-game rewards to be used in during their public gameplay.Further reading: Microsoft, Sea of Thieves
