Sea of Thieves Devs Outline Future Content

Sea of Thieves Devs Outline Future Content

It will introduce what Neate calls "a new AI threat to the world", which will require pirate crews to cooperate if they want to discover and defeat it. When adding content, Rare wants to bring players together in interesting ways, enrich the world, give players new ways to play, provide a variety of goals and rewards, and broaden the journey to Pirate Legend and beyond.

The additional content will come via weekly events, the first of which goes live in May and is called The Hungering Deep.

We've been listening closely to our community, and we know how keen they are to hear how we plan to grow Sea of Thieves.

It is slated to arrive in May, and five more content updates are in the plan for 2018.

"Sea of Thieves is a unique experience", said Executive Producer Joe Neate.

Trump attorney Michael Cohen fights to shield items seized in Federal Bureau of Investigation raid
Representing Trump, Joanna Hendon said that as Cohen's client, Trump has the right to assert what's privileged, not Cohen. Broidy, in a statement Friday, said that he retained Cohen in the matter after the lawyer approached him about it.

The studio discusses its content plans in depth in the developer video below.

Later in the summer players can expect to see "Cursed Sails" and "Forsaken Shores" which will introduce a new ship type and map area to explore respectively.

Content updates will add major new features alongside new items & mechanics, with new goals and rewards. Details on these are scarcer, but there'll be a new ship, and a brand new part of the world to sail. That'll arrive in May, followed by weekly events with "new ways to play". The Hungering Deep will be a permanent fixture in the game, with new mechanics and rewards, but will kick off with a timed event that Rare plans to start teasing soon.

The Hungering Deep is due in May and will add "a new AI threat" to the game world. Rare said that this change in focus is a direct result of player feedback, and that it will continue to listen to the community as to which direction the game will be heading. The water looks incredible, sailing is fun, but outside of those two things many have found the game to be lacking. Expect plans to continue to be fluid but always with the goals listed above as a guiding principle.
