Sea Of Thieves' Crews Of Rage Update Adds A Furious Ship-Burning Chest And Viva Pinata Cosmetics
New tomes are also available now.
Sea of Thieves' latest update, Crews of Rage, sends players off on a quest to collect some particularly dangerous treasure. Go and visit Duke and he'll send you off on new bounties that will involve tracking down the Chest of Rage, which contains the souls of trapped pirates that are desperate for release.
As seen in the video below, the Chest of Rage needs to be kept cool, as the anger it contains threatens to burst forth. If you don't occasionally wet it with a dip in the ocean or a bucket of water, it'll flare fire in all directions--which can be absolutely hazardous if you're on your boat.
Alternatively, you can purposefully make the chest angry by shooting it and use those flames to your advantage, attacking enemy skeletons.
The mysterious Masked Stranger will buy the chest from you, so you don't need to carry it around and placate it forever.
There's plenty more that has been added to the game with this update. The final five Ashen Tomes have been added, which you can find for the Bilge Rats. Finding them all will unlock some firey cosmetics for your ship. In fact, a lot of new cosmetics are being added to the game, as well as new weapons and cursed pets.
Perhaps most excitingly, for long time Rare fans, Viva Pinata themed ship cosmetics have been added to the game. You can now celebrate Rare's Xbox 360 creature-management games by adorning your ship in bright colors.
Sea of Thieves has been the most successful new IP on Xbox this generation, and was one of the major attractions of Game Pass when it launched. While the game had a rocky launch, which was reflected in reviews, improvements have been made in the nearly two years since.
