Today, Rare released another update for Sea of Thieves on Xbox One and PC. The update doesn't add any new features and mostly contains bug fixes. However, it does get the game ready for next week's "Cursed Sails" expansion. Cursed Sails is expected to launch on July 31, 2018 and introduce a new threat to the world.
Sea of Thieves is an exploration-based pirate game which launched on March 20. Rare is known for many famous franchises including Banjo-Kazooie, Conker, and GoldenEye. However, in recent years, the team focused on developing Kinect games for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
Cursed Sails debuts terrifying skeleton ships and more new content alongside a time-limited campaign. According to the studio, pirate dominion over the waters is being challenged by crews of skeletons, united by their warped desire for vengeance on the living. Each region will be called out, so prepare to fight to protect your favorite outposts. In order to succeed you must form alliances.
Better yet, there's a new three-person "Brigantine" ship coming alongside the expansion. This ship is supposed to be much more maneuverable than the standard four-person vessel.
Cursed Sails adds new outfits and liveries to Sea of Thieves, in the forms of both permanent new content and time-limited rewards. The cosmetic highlight has to be the skeleton outfits and gear. Every item, including instruments, is decorated with skulls and bones. Equipping these will make you look like the fiercest pirate around. Vendors will discount their inventories when Cursed Sails launches too.
Be sure to download the update next week if you play Sea of Thieves. Hopefully aggressive post-launch support will bring players back who may have abandoned the game due to the lack of content upon release.
