More On: Sea of Thieves

Yesterday morning, Rare released a 20-minute video in which developers shared an outlook for Sea of Thieves over the next 12 months. Long video short, there should be some good swashbuckling adventures this year. Check out the preview event below:

Here's a high-level overview of what's to come, according to the press release:

  • Major quarterly content updates that bring new tools, systems, and features to the game alongside a reset of seasonal progression and a new Plunder Pass.
  • Sea of Thieves is introducing narrative-driven live events called Adventures, which offer new immersive and cinematic experiences each month. Each Adventure will be a chapter in another overarching narrative for the game. At key points of the story, the actions of the community will determine how the story unfolds and the impact this has on the world. Season 6 will see the first Adventure arrive in Sea of Thieves: Shrouded Islands.
  • Mysteries are a new way of storytelling in Sea of Thieves, blending in-game side quests with elements of an ARG. Players will be invited to solve headline-grabbing mysteries by solving clues found both inside and outside of the game. Each Mystery will unfold over a sustained period, with new clues being made available as the community progresses.
