During the Xbox E3 2018 conference, Rare revealed that two new expansions for the piratical multiplayer game Sea of Thieves are coming in the months ahead. The first of the two expansions, Cursed Sails will be released in July and the second, Forsaken Shores will arrive in September.
The E3 2018 Trailer shown below confirms the release months and gives hints of the content that will be included in the expansions. Skeleton crews will plunder the seas and Forsaken Shores will introduce a new map.
Three weeks has passed since Sea of Thieves officially launched on Xbox One and Windows. Now Executive Producer Joe Neate and Design Director Mike Chapman have gone over their plans for the game’s development for the rest of the year and reflected on how it’s progressed so far. Their focus in April is to address top feedback points, but the focus will swap to adding new content in the month after.
The first content update called “The Hungering Deep” will be released in May which will introduce a new AI threat to the players and their world. New mechanics, events and rewards will be added with this May update, but no specific details have been shared yet on what they will entail.
