Picture this: you’re sailing the salty oceans with your scurvy mates when, suddenly, a skull appears in the clouds above, serving as beacon toward a fortress full of undead guarding the key to unlock untold fortune. But you’re not the only ones who can see the signal, and rival pirates all over the seas turn to meet the challenge at once.
Check out all the details on Sea of Thieves’ quests, guilds, and more.
That’s the idea behind Sea of Thieves’ Skeleton Forts, which are seen across the map but only become active on certain occasions, naturally drawing player crews toward them with a highly-visible skull cloud. You fight waves of skeleton guardians on the beaches and in the forts, culminating in a battle against a much tougher captain.
