Shiver me timbers! A giant gap has all of a sudden and mysteriously appeared on one in all Sea of Thieves’ uncharted islands. The outlet was noticed after the most recent update, Black Powder Stashes, which arrived yesterday—although it seems in the mean time to be unrelated to the replace’s new voyages. It might, nevertheless, have one thing to do subsequent month’s replace, which known as Darkish Relics. Or, maybe it has one thing to do with an replace even additional sooner or later. In the intervening time, we simply do not know. Mysterious.
The island in query is positioned on the border of map coordinates I-12 and J-12, unofficially known as “Killer Whale Island” as a result of wreck of Merrick’s ship, The Killer Whale. The island already has some cool options: the shipwreck, an underwater shrine and archway, a cave, and Merrick’s amusing journal (positioned within the crow’s nest of the wreck).
And now, there is a mysterious gap! Maybe it is not as arresting as Fortnite’s wandering cube or giant eyeball, nevertheless it’s nonetheless an intriguing little thriller and makes me marvel if another map adjustments have been made to trace at future adventures.
The outlet was noticed by Reddit member and pirate Jetamo, and I simply jumped into the sport to test it out for myself. In response to the Reddit thread, the circle of stones across the gap may additionally have been added in an replace previous to the outlet—although I can not verify this.
There’s additionally a grave on the island close to a lifeless tree that one other poster says is new. You possibly can see my image of the tree and grave beneath, however once more, I can not say for sure it wasn’t there previous to the Black Powder Stashes replace.
As for the outlet itself, I carried out some half-assed investigation whereas I used to be there: I attempted digging within the gap however solely unearthed some grubs, and I additionally threw a couple of buckets of water into it, however nothing thrilling occurred. Then a galleon sailed over, fired a number of cannonballs at my sloop, missed, then scuttled itself. The crew swam over and climbed on my ship and stared at me in silence for some time as I requested them what occurred after which provided them a trip. Then they attacked me with swords. That is no thriller, that is simply enterprise as normal in Sea of Thieves.
