The sixth season of Sea of Thieves concludes with a new adventure called Lost Sands, which starts on May 26.

Developer Rare has revealed this in a new trailer. It is the fourth part of the Season 6 story and is unique in that it gives players the chance to choose an in-game faction with permanent consequences for the game world, and in particular the Golden Sands island that takes center stage this season .

One can choose to join the Reaper’s Bones, leaving the site in ruins. People who don’t join that are in favor of rebuilding Golden Sands. The adventure ends on June 9 – then it should become clear which faction has gained the upper hand.
