Sea of Thieves launched to reasonable fanfare and expectation, though as the sheen quickly wore off it was apparent the game suffered from a severe lack of content. It’s stunning and it taps into a sense of adventure we all have, though there’s just not a lot to do beyond the basic bounties on offer.
Fortunately, Rare’s Sea of Thieves roadmap makes it seem as though the developer has a handle on this and they’re about to steer this ship into deeper, calmer and content-filled oceans with tasks as far as the eye can see.
The game’s first content pack, The Hungering Deep, arrives in May, though it’s the first of six content updates that’ll be releasing in 2018 to support Sea of Thieves. And here’s the music to your ears, all of those content packs will be released for free.
