Sea of Thieves adds fiery new boss battles in today’s Ashen Winds update

Rare’s multiplayer pirate adventure Sea of Thieves has just received its latest monthly helping of fresh nautical goodness on Xbox One and PC, this time in the form of flamethrower skulls and fiery new bosses as part of today’s Ashen Winds update.

This month’s additions might not be quite as dazzling as the wonderfully cinematic ghost ship battles introduced in June’s Haunted Shores update, but the four new Ashen Lord boss battles do at least promise to bring more challenge and variety to the oceans.

These new encounters can be initiated by visiting islands marked by a fiery tornado cloud on the horizon, with a battle against either Captain Grimm, Red Ruth, Old Horatio, or Warden Chi awaiting those that make the trip.
