The first major update for Sea of Thieves will be out in the wild soon, and as the newest development video shows off, the team behind it didn’t have much lead time. Heck, logic alone would make that clear; there was only enough time to work on the update from launch and after the initial launch haze faded, so you’re seeing the work of a team with very little lead time. Subsequent updates will have more, however.
The video just below also discusses some of the philosophy behind the game’s updates and how much players can expect to see; the plan is that each bit of content should have some time-limited components for players who are right there for something new as well as permanent additions for the game. So you’ll have challenges that need to be met swiftly and others that you can take on at your leisure. Check out the full video just below for the full discussion.
