Online multiplayer pirate adventure Sea of Thieves is celebrating its one year anniversary of with a massive 2.0 Anniversary Update. The Sea of Thieves Anniversary Update adds a new competitive mode, a new story-driven adventure, and a new Trading Company that’s all about fishing and cooking.

The Anniversary Update is live now for Windows 10 PC and Xbox One.

The Arena is a new competitive mode that allows pirate crews to jump straight into matches against other crews. The update adds six Arena locations, each of which can have two different layouts. Competing in the arena will earn commendations and unlock new titles to show off to your fellow pirates.

New story missions arrive as a series of Tall Tales, called Shores of Gold. The series of adventures add several new elements, including skeleton lords, Enchanted Tools, and Collector’s Chests that can store your valuables.

The Hunter’s Call is the new trading company that’s more interested in fishing, hunting, and cooking than the typical pirate activities. Climb the ranks of the company by catching impressive fish, taking down dangerous beasts and whipping up some fine cuisine.

The Anniversary Update also adds a number of quality of life improvements and updates. See the full 2.0 patch notes here.
