The Spring Update includes the new Cursed Captain class as well as new items to explore. In addition, players can leverage some sweet discounts including 50% off on Switch, 50% off on PS4, and new sales to be announced on Thursday, May 27th.
Walking the plank between life and death, the Cursed Captain is the undisputed commander of the high seas.
