The latest update for Sea of Thieves is now live for all players on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. Fort of the Damned encourages players to seek out this fearsome fortress and take on our most exciting Skeleton Fort challenge yet to earn huge rewards including a guaranteed Chest of Legends.
Let's take a look at what's new in the Sea Of Thieves October update!
The Fort of the Damned
Dark forces have seized Old Boot Fort, using ancient magic to bring forth an evil that transforms it into the Fort of the Damned, overrun with sinister Shadow of Fate Skeletons.
Pirates must undertake Voyages to find Ritual Skulls, claim the Flames of Fate then band together to take down the Fort. Sloops, Brigantines and Galleons: it's time for ships to raise their Alliance flags, work together and answer the call!
Fort of the Damned is the biggest update to Sea of Thieves' popular Skeleton Fort feature since launch, offering players action-packed new challenges and massive rewards. The new Fort can be activated on demand as long as the in-game requirements are met, allowing players to take on this new challenge as often as they want. It's a permanent new addition to the game that will remain available beyond October's update.
Skeleton Pets in the Pirate Emporium
The Pirate Emporium is stocking new items for the spooky season including some supernatural additions to the pet range: the Skeleton Cockatoo and Skeleton Marmoset. But hurry, skeleton pets will only be available for the duration of the Fort of the Damned update and will return to the mists once the November update is released. Grab them before they go!
Story-driven action RPG Children of Morta is now available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
Children of Morta sets its story in a distant land but copes with themes closer to our daily lives that one would expect. It is a story of simple emotions we all know so well and value more than sometimes we dare to admit: love and hope, longing and uncertainty, ultimately loss and sacrifice we are willing to make to save the ones we care the most for.
Embark on the adventure of an extraordinary family of heroes. With the Corruption spreading through the land, guardians of the Mountain Morta have to stand up against the ancient evil. But... it's not a story about saving the universe. It’s a story about a valiant family standing together while the world around them is being devoured by darkness.
Obsidian Entertainment's new single-player sci-fi RPG “The Outer Worlds,” (@OuterWorlds) is now available on Xbox One and included with Xbox Game Pass.
In The Outer Worlds, you awake from hibernation on a colonist ship that was lost in transit to Halcyon, the furthest colony from Earth located at the edge of the galaxy, only to find yourself in the midst of a deep conspiracy threatening to destroy it. As you explore the furthest reaches of space and encounter various factions, all vying for power, the character you decide to become will determine how this player-driven story unfolds. In the corporate equation for the colony, you are the unplanned variable.
In keeping with the Obsidian tradition, how you approach The Outer Worlds is up to you. Your choices affect not only the way the story develops; but your character build, companion stories, and end game scenarios. Build the character you want with optional flaws based on your own game experience. Keep getting attacked by Raptidons? Taking the Raptiphobia flaw gives you a debuff when confronting the vicious creatures, but rewards you with an additional character perk immediately.
