Sea of Thieves corrects its course with six planned content patches for 2018
The widespread criticisms that Sea of Thieves is rather lacking in the content department has not fallen upon deaf ears at Rare. The studio most certainly is feeling the pressure to give its antsy pirates more to do, and in a recent 14-minute developer diary, plans are put forth to make it happen.
Three content updates are planned to roll out over the next few months, followed by another three this fall. First up is “The Hungering Deep,” which will arrive in early may and add a new world event, more rewards, and a sinister new threat. “Cursed Sails” comes after that with a new type of ship, followed by “Forsaken Shores” and a fresh region of the world to explore.
In addition to the three content updates, Rare said that it will try to run weekly events. This all comes at a price, as the team’s shifted focus will delay the rollout of ship captaincy and pets.
