Sea of Thieves Has a Really Cool Easter Egg For Retro Fans
There’s a really cool easter egg for retro fans in Sea of Thieves, but finding it is no easy task.
Spoiler Warning! If you don’t want to be spoiled on this easter egg, we recommend backing out now. Otherwise, please proceed at your own risk!
Specifically, the newest content drop for Rare’s Sea of Thieves, A Pirate’s Life, features a Monkey Island easter egg that’s quite expansive. A Pirate’s Life is the new story campaign in Sea of Thieves and it’s comprised of five Tall Tales that center on Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean.
As a result, there’s easter eggs galore both in reference to the Pirates of the Caribbean films and the famous Disney rides. But it’s not just Disney — this collaboration also gave Rare the chance to show some love to a somewhat forgotten (or at least, it’s not been seen in a very long time) series also owned by Disney by way of Lucasfilm Games: Monkey Island.
The Monkey Island series is a point-and-click adventure series all about pirates: specifically the likes of Guybrush Threepwood. In Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge, Captain Kate Capsize was introduced to the series and the Sea of Thieves easter egg centers on these two characters.
The actual Monkey Island easter egg can be found in the first Pirate’s Life Tall Tale titled “A Pirate’s Life” and finding it is no easy task. Head to IGN’s How to Find Monkey Island in Sea of Thieves guide for an extremely-detailed breakdown of everything you have to do in order to reach this Monkey Island easter egg.
Once you finally do reach the easter egg, you’ll find yourself standing before the wreckage of an old ship named The Headless Monkey. Keep your ears open here because the music transitions from the Pirates of the Caribbean-inspired score playing in this Tall Tale to a rendition of the main theme of The Secret of Monkey Island.
That’s not all, though. If you step aboard the shipwreck, there are five Headless Monkey journals to discover written by Captain Kate Capsize and in them, she talks about what happened to her glass-bottomed boat, why Guybrush Threepwood went to the Sea of Thieves, and how she ended up in the Sea of the Damned.
These journals are quite the fascinating read for fans of Monkey Island wondering what some of their favorite characters are up to these days. If you’d like to read each journal for yourself, IGN’s How to Find Monkey Island in Sea of Thieves guide page has a full transcription of all five journals, as well as the location of each.
That’s not all, though. IGN’s Sea of Thieves guide has full walkthroughs for all five Pirate’s Life Tall Tales, tips and tricks, answers to all your questions, and more.
