Sea of Thieves charts 5 updates with new mechanics in 2018

Prepare for a hammer-blow of childlike glee as the first few hours of this game unfolds majestically before your eyes

Alongside regular content updates, Sea of Thieves players can expect weekly events featuring various goals and new mechanics. Rare announced Friday its content plans for the game through the rest of 2018 includes six free content updates plus weekly events. "As we look to add to the game, we will be very purposeful about the type of experience we want to create, and how we want this game to grow", he continued. Two are planned for this summer and will include a new ship, new part of the map, additional enemies, mechanics, and rewards.

Sea of Thieves design director Mike Chapman and executive producer Joe Neate talked about the development roadmap for the game in a new video and how Rare plans new "ways to enrich the world" and deliver "things that surprise you". The goal is to "bring areas of the game that haven't been into play yet" and reward players with "something tangible" when they, for example, manage to find a skeleton throne in a hard to reach location.

"The Hungering Deep brings a new AI threat to the world that crews will have to work together to discover and defeat as part of a unique event", reads Neate's blog post.

The game has been out for a few weeks now, and based on the feedback I've been hearing, Sea of Thieves has been just a little bit light on stuff to actually do. It will also introduce a number of new mechanics that will assist players on this adventure, and there will be unique rewards that players can earn as part of this event. But this re-focusing means Rare is putting other things on the backburner, namely pets and ship captaincy.

This is the new Gmail design
Like ephemeral stories, these emails will be automatically cleared as soon as they're in the inbox for a specific time period. The sender can then pick an expiration date for the email, and optionally require an SMS passcode to open the email.

With that, other tools will be added to the game that give crews more tools to communicate with other crews to make tracking down this threat more user-friendly.

Sea of Thieves biggest problem at the moment is a lack of content.

Looking further down the line, this summer will see a couple of updates with the Cursed Sails and Forsaken Shores updates.
