Sea of Thieves How to Change Character Appearance

To change your character’s appearance, follow these steps:

  1. Load up the Main Menu.
  2. Rather than going into a game, head into the Pirate Emporium store.
  3. Go to the “Pirates” tab at the top.
  4. Select the “Pirate Appearance Potion” and pay the Ancient Coins involved.
  5. Exit and log back into Sea of Thieves. You will be presented with character creation identical to the first time you played, only now you’ll keep your progress from before.

This is a notable change for the series; prior to now players could only change their appearance either through superficial cosmetics such as clothes, hair and make-up, or were forced to delete their character and begin again with a fresh one.

In addition to the Pirate Appearance Potion, Rare has also announced a list of other updates we can expect to see in the newest update.
