Sea of Thieves Season 10 is making waves in the gaming world with its exciting new feature: Safe Seas mode. Scheduled to kick off in October, this season is set to roll out in multiple installments, offering players a host of new experiences and challenges.
In a recent Xbox Wire blog post, the introduction of Safe Seas was unveiled, promising a more serene and solo-friendly environment in the often tumultuous seas of this pirate-themed online game.
Sea of Thieves, known for its high-stakes pirate adventures, has not been without its fair share of griefers. Season 10 aims to address this issue by introducing Safe Seas, a mode tailored for those who prefer a more tranquil and solitary gaming experience.
The Xbox Wire blog post describes it as “intended to offer a gentler introduction to Sea of Thieves for new players, as well as providing a quieter map for existing players looking to pursue their own solo adventures.” With Safe Seas, players can peacefully engage in activities like fishing and Tall Tales without the constant threat of interference from other players.
All applicable Commendations can be earned in this mode, offering plenty of goals for players to strive toward without the need to constantly watch for enemy pirates on the horizon.
Despite the focus on solo play, Safe Seas still allows players to team up with friends to embark on adventures. This mode is set to be introduced in December, coinciding with the renaming of the classic way to play as “High Seas.” However, there are a few important caveats to be aware of.
Firstly, rewards for completing various tasks will be reduced in Safe Seas. Trading Companies will offer less gold and reputation for treasure handed over, although Seasonal Renown remains unaffected.
There’s also a rank cap of 40 in this mode, preventing players from achieving the coveted Pirate Legend status, and voyages on behalf of the Athena’s Fortune Trading Company are off-limits. PvP elements like The Reaper’s Bones, the Emissary system, and Faction battles will also be unavailable.
Sea of Thieves Season 10 promises even more exciting content for players. Upon its launch in October, the season will kick off with shared progression within Guilds, allowing multiple players to collaborate in unlocking unique rewards. In November, competitive questing will make its debut, where all players on the same server will receive identical quests, sparking a race to see who can complete them first.
In sum, Sea of Thieves Season 10 is set to make the high seas a more accommodating place for players who prefer a quieter, solo experience, while still offering the option for group adventures with friends. With Safe Seas on the horizon, players can look forward to a more serene and stress-free pirate life.
