Sea of Thieves Season Three Flags of Friendship Special Event guide – challenges, rewards, dates

Make alliances, not war.

The Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life expansion featuring a Pirates of the Caribbean crossover will undoubtedly bring a wave of new players to Rare’s online game, so a concern is how the existing playerbase will treat them. Luckily, an event starting off Season Three of Sea of Thieves will encourage players to be friendlier towards each other. Titled the Flags of Friendship Special Event, this event is the antithesis of the Reapers VS The World event from Season Two, and it will offer PvE-related challenges and rewards, with bonuses to players who form alliances with other crews.
