In ~ the moment, we just don"t know. Mysterious.

The island in question is situated on the border the map coordinates I-12 and also J-12, unofficially dubbed "Killer Whale Island" due to the destructive of Merrick"s ship, The Killer Whale. The island already has some cool features: the shipwreck, one underwater shrine and archway, a cave, and also Merrick"s amusing journal (located in the crow"s swarm of the wreck).

And now, there"s a mysterious hole! possibly it"s not as arresting together Fortnite"s hike cube or large eyeball, however it"s still an intriguing little mystery and renders me wonder if some various other map alters have been made to hint at future adventures.

Climate a galleon cruised over, fired numerous cannonballs in ~ my sloop, missed, then scuttled itself. The crew swam over and also climbed on my ship and also stared at me in silence because that a while as I asked castle what happened and also then offered them a ride. Climate they struck me with swords. That"s no mystery, that"s just business as normal in Sea that Thieves.
