Rare reveals what's on the horizon for Sea of Thieves

Rare has issued a roadmap detailing its upcoming plans for Sea of Thieves on Xbox One and PC. Similar to The Hungering Deep, both of these updates will also include new gameplay mechanics for players, new AI threats to challenge and new unique rewards to claim.

Rare announced today the first content update for Sea of Thieves will be called The Hungering Deep. It's due in May and will introduce a "new AI threat" to the game that will "encourage players to interact in different ways" and "bring crews together" in new ways.

Everything introduced as part of the timed event will remain as part of Sea of Thieves once the timed event ends.

Rare has said this before, but it also reiterated that it is offering this content for free because it does not want to separate its players into haves and havenots. Another one is skeleton thrones scattered around the world for players to find.




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

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 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. The only hint at what it might be is describing the new content as "more fantastical".

You'd think the development team at Rare would be taking a break after releasing Sea of Thieves, but it wants to let you know what it's planning for the future. Unfortunately, Rare was even more secretive with these as it did not reveal even the names.
