Sea Of Thieves is sailing on into Season Nine, with Rare's latest update now live for all of you pirate adventurers out there. This looks like a biggie, with the team adding plenty of new content like expanded voyages, new Chests of Fortune, seasonal rewards and more.

Much of Season Nine's new content is detailed in the deep dive video we've included up above, as the team takes you through the latest Sea of Thieves additions. Details on what's coming to the game's Pirate Emporium and Plunder Pass can also be found within Rare's latest SoT blog post.

Season Nine coincides with some new editions of the game as well, five years on from its initial launch. The 'Sea of Thieves 2023 Edition' is now live on Xbox Game Pass, while a Deluxe Edition is also available to buy from the Microsoft Store. Here's what's now included in the Game Pass version of Sea of Thieves:
