'Sea of Thieves' (ALL) The Hungering Deep Content Update, Roadmap Revealed - Trailer

by Rainier on April 13, 2018 @ 11:11 a.m. PDT

Sea of Thieves is an immersive, shared-world adventure game filled with pirates, unexpected dangers and loot for the taking.

Sea of Thieves is a uniquely co-operative multiplayer experience1 set in a shared world that combines the thrill of adventuring together with friends with the unpredictability of emergent play and unexpected threats – both from other players and the world itself.

Be the pirates you want to be, share adventures with friends and set your own rules, roles and goals in a world where every sail on the horizon is another crew of players with unknown intent.

Explore, fight and live the pirate life together in this uniquely fresh and fun multiplayer game. Choose your voyage and decide how you’ll approach adventures in a world where every sail on the horizon is another crew of players with unknown intent.

Sea of Thieves also supports cross-play across the Xbox One family of devices and Windows 10 PCs so that everyone can play regardless of their preferred platform.

Hi everyone,

It’s been just over three weeks since we launched Sea of Thieves, and a lot has happened since then!

We’ve been listening closely to our community, and we know how keen they are to hear how we plan to grow Sea of Thieves. As we’ve always said, launch is just the start for Sea of Thieves, and we are going to grow and evolve the game with feedback from our community. It feels like the right time to reveal how we’ll do this.
  • Our plan is for regular content updates and weekly events:
    • Content updates will add major new features alongside new items & mechanics, with new goals and rewards.
    • Weekly events will introduce new mechanics, or see fun goals for players to achieve in our world.
  • Our first content update is coming in early May, titled The Hungering Deep:
    • 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. We will also be introducing 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.
  • Beyond that, we plan two more content updates during the summer and another three more before the end of the calendar year:
    • This summer we’ll debut Cursed Sails, which will include a new ship type, and Forsaken Shores, which will introduce players to a new perilous part of the world to explore. Similarly 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.
    • Our content plans will continue to grow and evolve, based on feedback from our players. Based on feedback since launch, we have changed the priorities for both Pets and Ship Captaincy which we had previously announced as things we would look to add in the few months after launch. These are on the backburner for now whilst we add to the game in other areas. Expect our plans to continue to be fluid but always with the goals listed above as our guiding principles. 
  • As we’ve always said, we never wanted to do anything to separate our players, so we’re pleased to confirm that all content updates will be available to all of our players, at no additional cost.

 

Key Features:

  • A unique co-op experience that combines the thrill of adventuring together with friends with the unpredictability of a shared landscape and its threats, both from other players and the world itself.
  • Designed around players working together with shared goals and rewards, where you’ll go on epic voyages in search of legendary artefacts and buried treasure, but in a world where every sail on the horizon is another crew. What flag are they flying, and what do they want?
  • Crew up with your friends and be the pirates you want, choosing your own roles and goals. Explore the world, take on quests, or seek out conflict. It’s your crew against the world, and how you deal with other crews is entirely up to you.
  • Invites players into a beautiful world with a distinctive art style, ripe for exploration and with mythical creatures lurking on islands and under the inviting surface of the sea…
  • Offers an experience that will evolve over time, landing in players’ hands early and growing thanks to community insights and feedback. New ways to play will be unveiled as the world expands and evolves.

Sea of Thieves is now available for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC.
