“I’ve loved the atmosphere of Sea Of Thieves a lot that I would like it to be one thing that stays in my life for a very long time to return, however, in its present state, I do know that’s unimaginable,” our Alec stated in his Sea Of Thieves review. “There is a platform for wonderful things here, but if Rare don’t build new things atop it PDQ, it will soon crumble forever.”
Those new issues will begin arriving in May, builders Rare have introduced, with an replace they’re calling The Hungering Deep. It’ll add a brand new NPC menace to the world and, going by that title, I’m guessing it’s a nasty one.
Rare are fairly obscure about precisely what The Hungering Deep will add and what this new “AI threat” is, however… new issues?
“Crews will have to work together to discover and defeat this threat as part of a unique event,” Rare defined in Friday’s dev blog post. “We will also be introducing a number of new mechanics to assist players on this adventure, and there will be unique rewards that players can earn as part of this event.”
May may also see the launch of their weekly occasions programme, with “new mechanics” and “fun new ways to play” plus new rewards.
After this, Rare plan to introduce a brand new ship sort with the Cursed Sails replace and a brand new space of the world within the Forsaken Shores replace. Those are as a consequence of launch a while this summer time, additionally bringing new issues to play with.
Rare additionally say that they’re pushing again Pets and Ship Captaincy, two options they’d say they’d love to do after launch however now recognise, “based on feedback”, are decrease precedence than larger additions. Sounds smart, as a result of the sport is woefully hole. Pets are a function that may enhance the sport’s good moments of cruising round, however the sport does want a complete lot extra to do.
