Sea of Thieves content expansions detailed

TODO alt text

If you've spoken to me about anything in the last few weeks, it's likely that I somehow found a way to mention to you that I really like Sea of Thieves. Rare announced Friday its content plans for the game through the rest of 2018 includes six free content updates plus weekly events. The initial launch will be a timed event, but once the new threat is added to the world it will be a permanent fixture.

The Xbox and PC exclusive, Rare-developed game, recently surpassed two million players - in part, because it's a part of Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass platform - and now the developer behind the title has revealed plans for five major content updates over the course of this year. The weekly events may also bring in new mechanics, but they will also focus on giving players unique goals to achieve that shake up the gameplay.

When it releases in early May, The Hungering Deep will feature a new enemy which crews will need to discover and defeat as part of a unique event. Executive Producer Joe Neate and Design Director Mike Chapman would not go into specifics but explained a "new AI threat" will be introduced to the game along with a new item, new unlocks, and new ways to bring crews together in the game world. Those events will introduce new mechanics, new ways to play with things like new hidden treasures, trading companies, and other things that enhance the world.

Three more major content updates will arrive in the fall and winter for Sea of Thieves.

Looking further down the line, this summer will see a couple of updates with the Cursed Sails and Forsaken Shores updates. "As we've always said, launch is just the start for Sea of Thieves, and we are going to grow and evolve the game with feedback from our community". Up first is "The Hungering Deep" in May, which will introduce a new threat for players to deal with. The developers have stated regularly that one to four player crews is what worked best for the map and servers, so breaking that isn't likely.
