The newest season for Sea of Thieves will bring with it an entirely new update called A Pirate's Life, which includes new enemies, Tall Tales, and Jack Sparrow! This update full of pirate's booty will start on June 22, 2021. Many players are wondering exactly when the update will start, so they can be ready to explore the new content as soon as it's ready. The official Twitter account for the game has provided the answer!
For those of us unfamiliar with BST, this Tweet is saying that the Sea of Thieves: A Pirate's Life update (and Season 3) will start at 4 am CST. There is no solid fact for how long the downtime will last, but there is evidence that this update will have a lot of new content, so it may take a while for the servers to come back online. If history predicts, the servers will be offline for about two hours.
That's all there is to know! If you're in the US and want to play as soon as the game is ready, you'll have to wake up early!
