Sea of Thieves is back with a new update as Season Eight draws to a close. The Halo-inspired Infinite Depths collection is now available from the Pirate Emporium thanks to the latest Update 2.7.3 of Sea of Thieves. This collection includes costume, ship set, weapons, and heroic poses. As part of the latest update, further changes to ship combat matchmaking were also made.

Meanwhile, here are other additions, and events that were made available with Update 2.7.3, as detailed on the official Sea of Thieves website:

The Battle for the Sea of Thieves

Matchmaking Improvements

  • Further improvements in this area have now increased the size of the matchmaking pools, allowing players to find more crews who have joined the fight. These improvements work towards reducing matchmaking times and improving the suitability of skill-based matches.

Gameplay Improvements

Athena’s Fortune Emissary Flags

  • In the Battle for the Sea of Thieves, Athena’s Fortune Emissary Flags won from the same Faction battles can now be handed to the Mysterious Stranger in return for gold and reputation. This ensures that players can profit from the same Faction battles as well as rival Faction battles.

Ghost Ship Damage Balancing

  • Player ships colliding with a Ghost Ship during an encounter will now result in reduced hull damage.

Hiding Ship Names

  • Captains now have access to a new setting, providing creators with more control over their Ship’s Crest, Banner, and Logbook. Captains enabling ‘Hide My Ship Name From Others’ will now find the ship’s name is replaced when their ship is viewed by any other player.
  • The existing settings for replacing gamertags, ship names, and Captains’ gamertags have all been renamed to improve consistency.

Outpost Cosmetics

Mauve Majestic Sovereign Clothing

  • The Outpost clothing shops now stock the Mauve Majestic Sovereign clothing set, available to purchase for gold.

New Vanity Items

  • A selection of additional items has arrived at the Outpost clothing shops, giving pirates more options to customize their look. The Cascade Hair, Twin Tails Beard, and Ancient Ward Tattoo can now be purchased with gold.

Update 2.7.3 also brings a new event where players may obtain a free Pancake Puzzler Emote. Be sure to set sail on the Sea of Thieves between February 17th and February 24th, at 10 AM UTC, to receive the free Pancake Puzzler Emote. Sea of Thieves also continues to offer more cosmetics throughout Season Eight through Twitch Drops. Keep an eye on the Sea of Thieves social channels to find out when Twitch Drops for Partnered streamers will be available to receive Eastern Winds Sapphire items.
