Sea of Thieves Introduces Skeleton Forts

By Rebecca Smith, 4 months ago
Rare's multiplayer pirate sandbox Sea of Thieves has several features that they call "emergent systems", such as storms and shipwrecks. The latest video in their Inn-side Story series of developer diaries sees Senior Designer Andrew Preston and Senior Software Engineer Tom Berry talk about another emergent system in the game: skeleton forts.

Sea of Thieves

There are multiple skeleton forts located throughout the game's world, but only one of these will be active at any one time. How will you be able to tell which one it is? It's something to do with the giant and intimidating skull cloud with glowing eyes that you can see hovering above the active fort. Take a look at the video to see what you can expect.


Will you try try to take the fort on your own with your crew or will this be the start of a budding friendship with other players? You have until March 20th, the game's release date, to decide.
