Sea of Thieves Gets Firebombs for Christmas

By Rich Stanton on at

Sea of Thieves’ substantial post-launch support continues with free update ‘The SeaBound Soul’, which arrives November 20 and introduces that well-known pirate weapon: FIREBOMBS! 

There's something inherently funny about a boat in the middle of a sea catching fire, like the elements are just having a laugh. Firebombs can be thrown or loaded into your cannons, explode on impact, and set things on fire, on top of the water. Here’s the trailer for the update: 

The update will also include a new Tall Tale, the extended quests that some consider the best bits of the game, this time sending players off in search of a legendary ship called the Ashen Dragon.
