Xbox News: Confront The Herald of the Flame in Sea of Thieves’ Eighth Adventure, Live Until October 27


  • Fight to disrupt the prophecy of Flameheart’s return in Sea of Thieves’ latest time-limited Adventure, live from October 13 to October 27.
  • Seek out the dangerous Herald of the Flame, then ready your weapons to thwart a ritual that threatens the Sea of Thieves.
  • Sea of Thieves is available free for all players with Xbox Game Pass and across Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows 10/11 and Steam

Even in the wake of his historic defeat, Captain Flameheart has loomed large over the Sea of Thieves. Fleets of his Ghost Ships roam the open ocean and attack anyone they encounter, while the infamous warmonger himself continues to mastermind his nefarious schemes from the shadows.

Despite lacking a physical form, Flameheart has remained a consistent threat to the pirate life, and there are those who would seek to bring about his full rebirth. Having discovered an Ancient prophecy concerning a Time of Resurrection, Belle believes that The Reaper’s Bones will seize the opportunity to return their lord and master to the waves.

A Stitch in Time

The main architect of Captain Flameheart’s rebirth is described by the prophecy as the Herald of the Flame, and Belle has her suspicions that this refers to none other than Stitcher Jim – a lifelong villain and manipulator who once served among Flameheart’s most devoted followers. Jim, however, has not been seen since the climax of the ‘Heart of Fire’ Tall Tale, and it’s uncertain what role he will play in events now unfolding.

To be certain that she’s hunting the right man, Belle is requesting that pirates follow Stitcher Jim’s trail through the volcanic Devil’s Roar – a normally turbulent region that has fallen oddly silent in recent days. Establishing Jim’s current allegiance, ahead of an inevitable confrontation between the Pirate Lord’s allies and those faithful to Flameheart, might just mean the difference between victory and defeat.

Fire Fighting

Whether or not Stitcher Jim is destined to serve as the Herald of the Flame, it’s clear that battle is brewing and this Adventure looks set to culminate in a clash of epic proportions. Flameheart’s undead forces are ferocious, but Belle’s recent actions have seen a number of courageous Ancients pledge their blades to the Pirate Lord’s side, ready to fight alongside crews and forestall Flameheart’s resurrection if they possibly can.

Ahead of the fight, any pirates needing to reacquaint themselves with key players like Belle and Flameheart should look no further than our most recent instalment of Adventures Ahead – articles that recount recent story events for anyone seeking a quick refresher. The search for Stitcher Jim is already underway, so you can join the hunt by speaking to Larinna between now and October 27…
