After much speculation, and more than a year since the last instrument was added, Sea of Thieves is finally getting its next instrument in the form of the long-teased Banjo.
Spotted by the eagle-eyed journalists at Shack News, the Banjo was ‘accidentally’ in the Arena build playable at last week’s Gamescom event.
And by playable, it was literally playable.
The build isn’t final, and while it did also contain pets (which are confirmed to be releasing in the September 11th update), there’s no confirmation on exactly when the Banjo will release.
With the Hungering Deep introducing the Drum back in 2018, the Banjo will make the fourth instrument playable in Sea of a Thieves – and with the promise of new shanties coming soon, it sounds like it’s needed!
