Updated November 27, 2018: Rare confirmed that Sea of Thieves: Shrouded Spoils should launch on November 28.
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 has focused on developing Kinect games for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
Every couple of weeks, Rare releases a new adventure for Sea of Thieves. Today, the developer detailed the upcoming "Shrouded Spoils" update which launches after the Halloween celebration called "Festival of the Damned." Not only does Shrouded Spoils add fog, but it also brings other fan-requested features to the game. The main additions are listed below.
- Expanded ship customization like wheels and cannons.
- Features users have been asking for since the game launched all those months ago.
Shrouded Spoils is expected to launch in November 2018. At the X018 event in Mexico City, Rare will detail the update coming after Shrouded Spoils. It's apparently going to drastically change the game.
Sea of Thieves is currently available for $59.99 through various retailers, but it's free for Xbox Game Pass subscribers. The title runs at native 4K resolution on Xbox One X. The game started off as a rather barebones experience when it first launch, but due to excellent post-launch support, Rare has managed to turn it around.

Sea of Thieves is the most fun I've had with a game in years.
It is, it's a blast to play, and good natured fun for everybody
Personally it was fun for about 1-2 hours. And then I understood that it's just repetitive randomly generated fetch quests and grinding for no real reason.
It is a lot better now than it was, upon launch it was incredibly dull but a lot has been added to it since then. The fact of the matter is though, it's structured as an MMO, you either like that style of gaming or you don't.
