By Heidi Nicholas,
We have just picked up the Haunted Shores achievement list for Sea of Thieves.

There are 2 achievements worth a total of 40 Gamerscore, none of which are secret.

Sea of Thieves Achievements

Name Description Gamerscore
Banisher of the Spectral Flame Defeat the ghost of the Burning Blade 10 times! 10
Scourge of the Damned Defeat 500 ghost ships! 30
Haunted Shores is June's new free update. Aside from the two achievements above, it also adds in a new permanent enemy type: Ghost Ships. Rare's executive producer Joe Neate says these Ghost Ships are more breakable, but will be well-armed with "otherworldly weaponry" including Phantom and Wraith Cannonballs, and will have a much larger crew, "sure to outnumber living pirates". These Ghost Ships reward players with supernatural cannonballs, as well as gold and an increased reputation with the Order of Souls.

There's also new ship parts to be won, such as the Burning Blade Sails, earned by defeating Flameheart's Burning Blade ship ten times. Likewise, defeating 500 Ghost Ships will unlock the Ghost Captain Sails as well as the Scourge of the Damned achievement. Aside from Haunted Shores, June also sees the arrival of new Daily Bounties and events such as The Hunter's Call, which will "boost rewards for deliveries of cooked meat from sharks and Megalodons".


Sea of Thieves is developed by Rare and published by Xbox Game Studios, and was released on 20 March 2018.

The game is available via Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
