Sea of Thieves First Content Update Dated For May

In the three weeks since Sea of Thieves launched on Xbox One and Windows PC, players have wondered about what's next for Rare's open-world pirate adventure.

Following the release of The Hungering Deep, Sea of Thieves will then be hosting weekly events that will run until the next content update.

The first content update is set to arrive in early May 2018 and is called "The Hungering Deep.' This content pack brings a new threat to Sea of Thieves" world that players will need to work together to fight.

May will also show the start of Rare's new weekly events program, in which players are promised new ways to play the game and are able in to win rewards by participating. 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. In addition, some new weekly events with new mechanics will be added.

Rare has said this before, but it also reiterated that it is offering this content for free because it does not want to separate its players into haves and havenots. Up first is "The Hungering Deep" in May, which will introduce a new threat for players to deal with. 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.

Rare is once again trying to keep details of the new AI threat and new ship type a mystery. The other two content updates will be Cursed Sails, which will include a new ship type for our very own TL;DR Coxswain to sail, and Forsaken Shores. The only hint at what it might be is describing the new content as "more fantastical". Those more embedded in the Sea of Thieves forums are privy to these conversations, but others are possibly just now learning about these plans. Unfortunately, Rare was even more secretive with these as it did not reveal even the names.
