But it’s not just a range of permanent new game features being introduced, there’s also a very special time-limited campaign too.

Keep your ears to the ground in the taverns, as a group of adventure-seekers calling themselves the Bilge Rats have already heard a few juicy morsels about something stirring below the waves. Dare you seek out the truth?”
So, when is this new content coming? Well the dev team hasn’t revealed any set times for the content rollout just yet, but fans on the games official Sub-Reddit believe it will arrive at around 9am BST, as per most game updates so far.
