Sea Of Thieves Updates Detailed, Will Bring Free New Content

Ismael LynchApr 14, 2018

Summer will bring two more content updates with Cursed Sails, which will bring a new type of ship to the game for players to use, and Forsaken Shores, which opens up more of the world for players to pillage.

The studio added that the previously announced ship captaincy mechanic and the microtransactions based pets have been delayed to prioritize development of the upcoming content updates. With the event model, Rare says that there will be rewards that can only be earned by playing the game during the event window.

In Forsaken Shores, players will be introduced to a perilous new part of the world to explore and plunder.

While these updates still seem somewhat sparse, it's great to see that Microsoft is working towards responding to most of Sea of Thieves early criticism. This will also signal the start of weekly events in the game. Those big updates will be supplemented by regular weekly events with new goals and rewards. One example mentioned by Rare is underwater caves and reefs where an NPC could send players on a quest to find lost treasure. The first update will be called "The Hungering Deep" and will arrive in May. The initial launch will be a timed event, but once the new threat is added to the world it will be a permanent fixture. Expanding the number of ships from the current solo, two-man, and four-man options have been requested frequently from the community since the days of the beta.

The Hungering Deep brings a new AI threat to the world, that crews will have to work together to discover and defeat as part of a unique event. A weekly events program will also be introduced in May, giving players new ways to play with weekly events and rewards. Perhaps in time the developers will make steps to remedy this, but for now they have spurned their chance to capitalise on one of the most fantastic game concepts of the past few years. Unfortunately, Rare was even more secretive with these as it did not reveal even the names.
