  • UK: 10am (GMT/UK)
  • Europe: 11 am (CST/Western Europe)

From here, we can expect the servers to go offline for a few hours and the season to start when it returns.

As this is the biggest update to Sea of ​​Thieves in some time, it is unknown how long the servers will be down. However, since previous updates had downtimes of a couple of hours, we estimate that the new season will play two to three hours later than the previous times. So for the UK this would be around lunch time.

To clarify, this is just an estimate on our part, and it could be sooner or later depending on how things go. Also, wait for an update to arrive, which you will also need to download before you can start playing.
