Rare's pirate adventure sandbox Sea of Thieves is getting a new content update very soon. Season 4 for Sea of Thieves brings new undersea Shrines for players to explore. These continued updates are ensuring that for many players, Sea of Thieves stays one of the best Xbox games available, with new rewards and challenges available with every new Season.

Season 4 of Sea of Thieves also features a wide variety of new cosmetics for players to unlock through commendations. Players won't be waiting long, as Season 4 is set to begin on Sep. 23, 2021. You can check out the trailer for Sea of Thieves Season 4 below:

Shrines will be marked on player maps with this update, with a distinct "shimmer" on the ocean giving away the location for anyone peering at the waves. Shrines also provide a particular puzzle for pirates to solve, as the treasure has to be taken back to your ship, though use of Merpeople statues to store it all can aid in solving this problem.

Sea of Thieves is continuing to grow, with its biggest month ever in June 2021, with over 4.8 million active players thanks to the launch of a crossover story with Pirates of the Carribean, fittingly named A Pirate's Life.
