'Sea of Thieves' Updates Detailed in Wake of Fan Complaints

As we move into summer, we'll see the release of two new content updates: Cursed Sails and Forsaken Shores.

The Hungering Deep will be the first content update to be released in Sea of Thieves and is now scheduled for some time in May.

Sea of Thieves has been out only three weeks for the Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs but pirates have been intensely interested in new content for the open sea multiplayer title.

Rare plans to launch regular content and weekly events that will add major features, including items, mechanics and expanded goals. The former will introduce a new ship type, the latter will introduce a new part of the world with new AI threats unique to that area of the world. It sounds like this threat isn't something you and your friends will be able to handle alone, as Rare says "crews will have to work together to discover and defeat this threat as part of a unique event".

The game will also begin to see weekly events starting in May with new rewards to be won.

Sea of Thieves Executive Producer Joe Neate and Design Director Mike Chapman have taken to the airwaves in the latest Inn-side Story.

The Hungering Deep is due in May and will add "a new AI threat" to the game world. The only hint given is that it will introduce new rewards and new mechanics.

"This summer we'll debut Cursed Sails, which will include a new ship type, and Forsaken Shores, which will introduce players to a new perilous part of the world to explore", reads the blog. The goal is to "bring areas of the game that haven't been into play yet" and reward players with "something tangible" when they, for example, manage to find a skeleton throne in a hard to reach location. Based on feedback since launch, Rare changed the priorities for both Pets and Ship Captaincy which had been previously announced as things to add in the few months after launch. "Expect our plans to continue to be fluid", Rare said.

All of the aforementioned content will be available to Sea of Thieves players at no additional cost.
