Rare details Sea of Thieves 'Hungering Deep' campaign

The Sea of Thieves: The Hungering Deep expansion launches on May 29, 2018 and is the first of the game's free content updates. According to Rare, the patch adds a range of permanent features and a special time-limited campaign. You must follow the trail of riddles to piece together what happened to the bard Merry Merrick. Those who can find him and figure out what happened to him can join the hunt for his Jaws-like nemesis.

Along the way, you'll discover a drum, new flags, speaking trumpet, tattoos, and scars. To begin the journey, you have to meet a new character at the nearest tavern.

Sea of Thieves is an exploration-based pirate game which launched on March 20, 2018. 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. This was a curious decision, so when Phil Spencer became Head of Xbox in 2014, he assigned Rare a new project. Sea of Thieves is a shift for the developer and a concept the team hasn't tackled before.

The game is currently available at retailers for $59.99 or as part of the monthly $9.99 Xbox Game Pass subscription. The game features Xbox One X enhancements and Xbox Play Anywhere support. A new update rolled out today which adds colorblind support and weapon sensitivity sliders.
