Festival of the Damned Begins in Sea of Thieves

By Rebecca Smith, 15 days ago
The Forsaken Shores event has now ended in Sea of Thieves and the latest Bilge Rat Adventure has begun. Festival of the Damned asks players to honour the Ferryman, the man with the task of bringing all of the deceased pirates back to life. Alongside the new adventure is patch 1.3.2, which also makes changes to the mechanics of the Eye of Reach weapon, rowboats, and the rewards players gained from The Devil's Roar.


The Well of Fates, a sacred part of the Ferry of the Damned, has been revealed. Here players can find the Flames of Fate, which change colour depending on your manner of death. Capture the flame in your lantern and return it to the land of the living where you can choose to use it to light your ship lanterns or light the beacons belonging to the Bilge Rats. Every completed commendation rewards Bilge Rat Doubloons, and there are titles to be earned. Accompanying the event are limited time cosmetics to earn, which can be seen here.

The full patch notes can be seen in the spoiler below, including the aforementioned changes to the Eye of Reach, rowboats, and player rewards. Have a read before checking out the latest developer update video, where Senior Producer Drew Stevens gives a quick overview of the update.
