The official trailer can be viewed below, and it shows off an underwater ruin that seems to be where a lot of the update will be focused.
There definitely looks to be plenty of new types of loot and chests as well, as one shot from the trailer features treasure chests glowing with what appears to be underwater wear and tear. One player in the trailer even has a golden crocodile hat, and some new ship cosmetics can be seen as well.
Going underwater for season four does make a lot of sense, as the Pirates Of The Caribbean crossover event A Pirate’s Life involved quests that saw players exploring the ocean depths, and it even introduced an air bubble mechanic as well.
One eagle-eyed Twitter user said they wonder “if the new voyages will be discovered through bottles rather than purchase from trading companies,” as the start of the trailer shows off an NPC standing next to a new bottle design.
