While arguably the most exciting, dogs arent the only addition in Sea of Thieves September update. Theres also a new and permanent voyage being added for Gold Hoarders, which Rare says well hear more about at a later date.

The studio also says theyll continue to add new features, quality of life improvements, and bug fixes every month, with a focus on expanding the “range and visibility” of live events. “Our aim is to have something unique for players to do throughout the month and not just looking towards the next monthly update,” executive producer Joe Neate said. Mind, you still have until September 30 to get new loot and titles from the Summer of Sea of Thieves event (opens in new tab).

For many, Rare just announced its most important Sea of Thieves (opens in new tab) update: dogs. Woofing, circling, huggable good boys and girls. Thats right – not only can you pet the dogs, you can hug them. It might not be the most piratey thing to do, but what kind of monster could resist?

Sea of thieves: Everything you need to know about dogs

Sea of Thieves continues to grow with the team at Rare providing content updates and additions. Now, as part of Gamescom, Rare has shared that Sea of Thieves is getting dogs in the next update. Cats joined as pets earlier this year and now anyone who wants a dog will also be covered. Like with cats, there will be various breeds of dogs to choose from.

This update will arrive at some point in September. Joe Neate, Producer at Rare, talked with IGN about Sea of Thieves, saying that currently “20 to 30%” of the audience comes from Steam. Neate also says that there are “huge plans” for the future of the game and that the next year is the “biggest one yet” with big surprises in store.

Earlier this year, Rare revealed that Sea of Thieves has over 15 million players, with over a million copies sold on Steam since it launched via that platform on June 3. Rare has confirmed there will be Xbox Series X enhancements for Sea of Thieves, though we dont have any details at this time.

Xbox Game Pass gives you access to over 200 games for one monthly fee. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate also adds Xbox Live Gold to the package so you can play online with your friends. Right now, you can purchase a three-month subscription for a great price.
