Free the residents of Golden Sands Outpost from captivity in this time-limited event...
Time to stage a daring prison break as Sea of Thieves’ second story-driven Adventure, ‘Forts of the Forgotten’, goes live! Rally your crew, rendezvous with Belle and set sail for the Sea Forts pulled through from the Sea of the Damned by Captain Flameheart. Expect heavy resistance from a Phantom phalanx as you battle through these ghostly fortifications to rescue the missing inhabitants of Golden Sands Outpost!
Sea of Thieves’ plans for 2022, including this suite of new Adventures designed to let players take part in an ever-evolving story within the world, were laid out in our Preview Event earlier this year. As with the first Adventure, ‘Shrouded Islands’, we offered a look at the cinematic trailer for ‘Forts of the Forgotten’ ahead of time, teeing up the action that’s set to unfold over the course of this two-week in-game event.
Spare a Fort...
During the events of ‘Shrouded Islands’, the defeat of the Soulflame Captains weakened the barrier between the living world and the Sea of the Damned, allowing Flameheart to summon Sea Forts – initially insubstantial, now very real – into the Sea of Thieves. Meanwhile, despite the sinister fog around the islands starting to recede, Golden Sands Outpost still lies in ruin. Luckily, Belle has a lead on the location of its inhabitants, but it’ll take some brave crews to set them free...
If you want a full breakdown of the state of play before jumping into ‘Forts of the Forgotten’, don’t forget that we have a dedicated story primer on the Sea of Thieves website – ideal for those who may have missed out on taking part in ‘Shrouded Islands’! Each Adventure will be preceded by one of these primers, so you’ll always have a way to brush up on the story so far before heading out on your mission.
Ready for action? Raise your anchor and assail the ‘Forts of the Forgotten’ today! Expect more exciting Adventures throughout 2022, and keep your eye on the horizon for Legend of the Veil – the story-focused, Pirate Legend-exclusive Voyage arriving later in Season Six!
