The tides are turning in Sea of Thieves as Rare, the game’s developer, gears up to unveil a brand new player-versus-player (PvP) challenge: the Skull of Siren Song voyage. Set to make a splash on November 16, 2023, as part of the game’s Season 10, this latest addition promises to ramp up the excitement and competitive spirit among players.
The Skull of Siren Song voyage introduces a unique and dynamic PvP experience. For the first time, crews will find themselves racing against each other in a quest for a coveted treasure. The voyage begins when a ghostly note appears pinned to the mast of every crew’s ship, signaling the start of this thrilling race. The objective? To find two crucial items: a chest and the key to unlock it, guided by maps handed out by Captain Briggsy.
But the Skull of Siren Song is more than a mere race. Once a crew unlocks the chest and retrieves the titular skull, their ship’s speed will dramatically decrease, adding an intense layer of strategy and risk to their voyage back to an outpost to complete the mission.
This new voyage builds upon the innovations introduced in Season 10. Earlier in the season, Sea of Thieves expanded its social features, allowing players to form guilds and share ships, fostering a more collaborative environment. The Skull of Siren Song voyage, however, shifts the focus back to competitive play, offering a fresh and action-packed experience.
