Sea of Thieves gets daily bounties, Tall Tales checkpoints and more in latest update


Another month means another batch of piratical activities on the Sea of Thieves, and today’s Lost Treasures update – a somewhat lower-key offering than usual – brings a number of quality-of-life improvements such as Tall Tales checkpoints, plus a quivering heap of new limited-time events and recurring challenges, designed to encourage regular returns.

Tall Tales checkpoints (revealed to Eurogamer last month) are probably the biggest game-changer this month, enabling players to quit a session and resume an in-progress story episode at a later time. Crucially, it means pirates won’t be forced to restart, losing hours of effort as a result, if an enemy crew decides to pillage mission-critical items mid-way through an adventure.

Newcomers should also find it a little easier to navigate their way through Tall Tales thanks to a few new additions to the ship’s onboard map; Rare has now implemented tooltips for certain icons, guiding players in the right direction to begin their next quest.
