Confirmed Features in Sea of Thieves

A lot of the features we could see in various Trailers and Teasers for Sea of Thieves are not yet in the game. We took the time to compile a list of all the confirmed things that will most likely be in the final game.  Please comment down below with your ideas, thoughts, and suggestions and maybe we will see them in the game at some point!


Those are the different kinds of weapons that are confirmed to be in the game. We could see them in Trailers or have the Concept Renders, so there is definitely models for them.

  • Scoped Musket/Sniper Rifle
  • Explosive Gunpowder Barrels
  • At least 4 Different kinds of Swords
  • The Savage Broadsword


As you can see, there is a ton of different Outfits and Customization Options. Keep in mind that most of these clothes are part of a full set, so even if they wouldn’t add any cosmetics on top of that (Which they will), we would already have a huge collection to choose from.

What you will be able to customize:

  • Clothing ( All different Parts separately)
  • Tattoos
  • Beards
  • Peg Legs
  • Hook Hands
  • Eye-Patches
  • Hats
  • Possibly Hair?

You will be able to choose from one of the many base Character Model Presets and then customize it. Complete Character Creation like in Sims is not supported.

Ship Customization

While we don’t know what customization options there will be, Ship Customization is confirmed. The Sails, the color of the Wood and other Parts can be changed. If there will also be the possibility of Gameplay-changing customization hasn’t been confirmed just yet. Seeing the various types and looks of Ships is a great feature and will support the idea of Players becoming Legends. Each Crewmember will be able to contribute their unlocked Ship Parts to create a Ship that represents each member of a Crew.



The devs confirmed multiple times that the Kraken is coming to Sea of Thieves. We could not yet see him outside of Wallpapers and Concepts yet, so it’s hard to tell what exactly he will look like. It’s pretty safe to assume that he will be a huge monster that grabs your Ship. In our opinion, the Kraken should be a challenge that requires a coordinated Crew and lots of Teamwork to overcome. Defeating it should give the players access to cool cosmetics and titles to show off their achievements!



The Spyglass is something we have been waiting for for quite some time, but in the recent Trailers, you can see that it is finally working!

Trading Companies

We wrote a whole article and overview about them that should explain them in a bit more Detail Trading Company Overview.

Skeleton Lords

We could already see something similar to them within the Order of Souls Trading Company, but the ones from the pictures above look a lot more special and threatening. We are excited to see how exactly they will enhance our experiences!


Reefs have been announced in the latest Sea of Thieves Progression Trailer.They seem to act similar to Shipwrecks and every new reason to explore adds a lot to the game so we are really excited for them!


Events like in-game Raids for multiple Crews or Community and Seasonal Events have been confirmed and will take place regularly. We don’t currently know how exactly these Events will look like. However, we can be sure that they will add exciting variations to the Gameplay.

More Instruments


While we don’t really know what types of Instruments aside from the Fiddle are yet to come, we are sure that there is a lot more to come. Playing all the different Music Instruments at once and listening to the epic sound they produce together is a really cool experience and we are looking forward to all the new possibilities that come with different Instruments.

Wildlife and Animals

With the introduction of the Merchant Alliance, we will also see a lot of new animals in the game. Whether we will be able to have them only as cargo or as some kind of pet companion is unknown. Either way, we appreciate any new form of life in the Sea of Thieves, so this is a great feature.

Text Chat and Various Settings

We know that normal Text Chat is coming to the game as well as a lot more customization in the Game’s settings. While you can expect this with every AAA Game it’s still a very welcome addition that will allow for easier Communication.

Your Ideas?

We have surely missed a lot of the smaller confirmed features and a lot of them are just not publicly known yet. Rare’s marketing approach has been to try to hide new features for as long as possible so far. This makes it hard to really predict how the game will turn out at release.

Tell us your favorites in the Comments down below! What else would you like to see in the game at release?
