Sea of Thieves has been out for just over three weeks now. While some fans have enjoyed it, others have voiced their complaints about a lack of content. Now, Rare has made a video and a post to talk about what future content is coming to Sea of Thieves… kind of.
Both the post and the 13 minute “Content Plans” video that released today outlined what will be heading to Sea of Thieves in the near future, though the developers stayed strangely ambiguous about most of the actual content. Updates will be split between smaller weekly changes, meant to keep players engaged, and larger content drops that will add bigger changes to the game world.
When speaking about these changes, though, the developers didn’t name much specifically. In May, The Hungering Deep addition will add a “new AI threat,” which should bring different crews of players together. What that threat will be and how players will be expected to work together, though, wasn’t expanded upon. A Cursed Sails update in the summer will add another ship, though Rare gave no details, and a second, apparently different, “AI threat” will be added later in the summer as part of a the Forsaken Shores update.
The weekly updates in between are just as ambiguous. Stated goals include bringing players together “in interesting ways,” “enriching the world,” giving players “a variety of goals,” and “broadening the journey to Pirate Legend,” but very little about what those updates will actually consist of was revealed.
The Hungering Deep content update will release in May, followed by Cursed Sails and Forsaken Shores in summer and some additional unnamed updates in the fall and winter.
Sea of Thieves is currently out on Xbox One and PC.
