Everyone, happy Talk Like A Pirate Day! We’re delighted to reveal on this most special day that the next Sea of Thieves On September 30, the Community Weekend will kick off with sailing fun. This Season’s event has all sorts of fun lined up for players keen to maximize their looting returns, and, for the first time, will be introducing a brand new feature to the Sea of Thieves: Pop-Up Plunder.

However, this event already begins with a different flavor – You can also find out more about the following: that’s because again, in a Sea of Thieves first, we’ll be using Twitch to power the Community Emissary Grade! While in previous events pirates have been able to increase the Community Emissary Grade by using a hashtag on Twitter, it’ll be watch hours that power up the in-game multiplier this time – with big ol’ boosts to gold, reputation, Seasonal Renown and The players have the power to show allegiance.

All anyone needs to do to help raise the Community Emissary Grade is tune in to their favorite streamer in Twitch’s Sea of ThievesThe celebrations will include the awarding of a new category. When the group reaches Grade 5, the greatest boost is unlocked. Players receive 2 1/2 times more rewards. Simple!

To mark Community Weekend’s switch from Twitter to Twitch, we’ll be living our own best pirate lives over on the official Sea of ThievesTwitch Channel during opening hours. Join a sea of familiar faces streaming live from Rare’s on-site Tavern from 10am UTC on Saturday, September 30, when there will be Community Weekend challenges, mid-sail giveaways, and general livestream chaos to enjoy. Each minute of watching the stream will be counted towards your Community Emissary Score. You can also find out more about the following:Twitch Drops are a great way to earn them.

Over the course of this weekend, you can swipe through a variety of new Twitch Drops products. Sea of Thieves! Tuning in to the streams of your favourite streamers will allow you to win Eastern Winds Ruby Sturdy Boots as well as Gilded Phoenix Cutlass and Eastern Winds Ruby Bejewelled gloves. Each reward will be available as soon as it becomes available. You can unlock them by simply watching any stream. Sea of ThievesCategory for at least one hour.

That’s not all, though – if the community manages to get Sea of Thieves into Twitch’s top 10 categories (by viewing figures) at any point over the weekend, an extra-special Twitch Drop will be unlocked: the Obsidian Ship’s Crest, a reward which will be exclusive to Sea of ThievesIn the near future, Community Weekends are planned. This makes it an incredibly rare and high-value item to have in your inventory, ready to be equipped to any Captained ship – so it’s worth doing everything you can to make this outrageously cool item available for everyone! Make sure your Sea of Thieves Twitch Accounts are linked in advance so that you can benefit from the bonuses.

Heading into the virtual world of the Sea of Thieves itself, there’s lots to see and do. Then, you can continue the game. Port Merrick picture wall from our Fifth Anniversary Community Weekend ended up a smash hit for selfies, we decided to bring back a themed picture wall… to every Outpost, for your convenience! These picture walls will also display the Community Emissary Grade flag, so at a glance you’ll know how well everyone’s collectively progressing through the Grades.

The flag won’t be the only thing that changes as players level up through the Grades, however. Pop-Up Pillage, an event that debuts in the Community Weekend weekend, will see special caches buried throughout the game world. Every time the community hits a new collective Emissary Grade, we’ll sneak a spot of precious loot onto all servers at specific locations – with clues to the whereabouts of these locations being seeded on Sea of Thieves’ official social media channels. There will only be one prize per server, and each prize will only be discoverable for an hour before it disappears, so you’ll have to be swift to secure your stash.

The loot at these special spots will vary, with a roulette of items you could uncover! But it’s a game worth playing when packed Collector’s Chests, Chests of Legends, suites of Siren Gems and even Chests of Fortune are all on offer – so may the odds be ever in your favor. Even after the community hits Grade Five, we’ll continue to periodically drop terrific treasures into the world until the end of the event, just because we can. But the only guaranteed Pop-Up Plunder item will be Grade Five’s first treasure – an item particularly rare and Wondrous…

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Community Weekend without a couple of freebies. Players logging in during the weekend can expect their inventories to be furnished with a very regal purple and yellow Community Weekend Flag, plus a cheeky Touch Grass Emote that’ll have everyone gleefully reaching for their favorite foliage-based pose time and time again. For those who like to get even more bang for their buck, the Sea of Thieves merchandise store will also be running a 30% off promo, with the discount applicable to lots of lovely pirate swag. Just use SOTCOMMUNITYWEEKEND at checkout to score yourself some cut-price treasures.

Last but not least, every Sea of Thieves Community Weekend is all about the unstoppable community spirit of our wonderful pirates. We’ll be celebrating and spotlighting players throughout the weekend who showcase the best of #BeMorePirate, and running a Crew Couture-themed fashion competition with the return of #StyleOfThieves – but, most importantly, we’ll be raising a toast to all buccaneers who join in and tell us their best sailing tales with the #SeaOfThievesCommunityWeekend hashtag. This event is about us giving back to you, so we want to see your spoils, stories, selfies and more on every social media platform available.

We hope you’re excited to see in October with a plethora of piratical plusses on the Sea of Thieves. For those of you who can make it – we’ll see you on the seas!
