TODO alt text 'Sea of Thieves' Updates Detailed in Wake of Fan Complaints

Today, the developer offered a glimpse into the future, promising regular content updates and weekly events, as well as new threats and reasons to explore Sea of Thieves' world. Rare announced Friday its content plans for the game through the rest of 2018 includes six free content updates plus weekly events. The updates will add major features to the game, along with new items and mechanics.

While these updates still seem somewhat sparse, it's great to see that Microsoft is working towards responding to most of Sea of Thieves early criticism.

"We've been listening closely to our community, and we know how keen they are to hear how we plan to grow Sea of Thieves", said Sea of Thieves executive producer Joe Neate.

If you've spoken to me about anything in the last few weeks, it's likely that I somehow found a way to mention to you that I really like Sea of Thieves. "We will also be introducing 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".

After The Hungering Deep, the studio said it's planning two more content updates during the summer. Details on these are scarcer, but there'll be a new ship, and a brand new part of the world to sail. The only hint given is that it will introduce new rewards and new mechanics.

Rare also promises general updates to keep the sailing smooth and the piracy appropriately perilous, and until the new content updates it will be focused on enriching the world, adding new ways to play and to have fun with your crew. But this re-focusing means Rare is putting other things on the backburner, namely pets and ship captaincy. These are on the backburner for now while things are added to the game in other areas. "Expect our plans to continue to be fluid but always with the goals listed above as our guiding principles", the update read.

Sea of Thieves biggest problem at the moment is a lack of content.
