Two epic stories await to unfold in sea of thieves as his third time-limited adventure, The Shrouded Deep, and the long-awaited Pirate Legend Voyage, Legend of the Veil, are playable starting today! These connected stories both involve the Veil of the Ancients, a magical artifact that can allow its user to travel between the living world and the spectral sea of the damned.
In The Shrouded Deep, players join forces with Belle and famed Megalodon hunter Merrick, and attempt to summon that great pale leviathan: the Shrouded Ghost. Prepare for a monster hunt that will go down in legend as you seek to free the Veil of the Ancients from the belly of the beast. Next, in the Legend of the Veil voyage, Pirate Legends is called upon to help the pirate lord awaken the mask’s latent power by finding veil stones hidden around the Sea of Thieves.
As with our previous adventures, we’ve given players a glimpse of The Shrouded Deep in a special cinematic trailer, setting up the high-stakes action that will unfold during this in-game event. As the third adventure acts as a season finale for this story arc, it lasts three weeks instead of two, giving players more time to experience the dramatic conclusion.
ghost of a chance
Using key information uncovered during previous Forgotten Adventure Forts, Belle deduced that Captain Flameheart’s plans hinged on a mystical treasure: the Veil of the Ancients. With this long-lost relic rumored to now reside in the stomach of an elusive megalodon, Belle sought out Merrick to help her track down the near-mythical monster. While certainly a capable duo, these two may have bitten off more than they can chew…
For those wanting to catch up on the unfolding story, check out our latest Adventure Awaits story primer on the sea of thieves website. Each adventure is preceded by one of these items, so if “The Shrouded Deep” is your first foray into our time-limited narrative events, you can easily catch up on the story so far with previous primers.
Following the events of The Shrouded Deep, The Legend of the Veil Voyage sees you working with the Pirate Lord on a three-part quest to find the Veil Stones (and possibly Athena’s treasure along the way). This voyage is designed to be replayable with the first two stages chosen at random, while the finale is always the same: a climactic sea battle amid a supernatural storm as you attempt to take down a massive ghost garrison!
While Legend of the Veil is primarily for players who have reached the dizzying heights of Pirate Legend, teammates who have yet to reach that milestone can still join Pirate Legends and experience this multi-step odyssey on their own. Need a quick refresher on how to achieve Pirate Legend status? Simply prove your mettle by reaching Rank 50 with at least three of the Sea of thieves’ Commercial companies.

There’s a monster hunt going on – sound that hunting horn and take on all that lurks in “The Shrouded Deep” today! This time-limited adventure runs from April 21 through May 12, while the Legend of the Veil voyage is a permanent addition to the game for Pirate Legends.
