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.
At Gamescom 2018, Executive Producer Joe Neate discussed the upcoming "Forsaken Shores" expansion. Forsaken Shores adds a new region called "Devil's Roar". As you may have guessed, it features active volcanoes and other dangers. According to a report by IGN, "this new island will periodically erupt and shake the world with tremors, launch geysers, fling rocks, and heat the water around the island to the point you can be boiled to death."
"Cargo Runs" is a new mode being introduced to the game next month as well. Just like any cargo run, the goal is to move a client's supplies from one location to another. It's unclear what happens if your ship sinks and you lose all the goods.
Aside from the new area and mode, the biggest addition has to be the rowboat. In order to survive the toxic waters, you have to use the vessel to avoid being boiled alive. The shores can't suppose life due to the extreme heat. Once you find a rowboat, it can be docked to a larger ship.
Forsaken Shores is coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 on September 19, 2018. It'll go live after a patch has been deployed for the game. Sea of Thieves is currently available for $59.99 through various retailers, but it's free for Xbox Game Pass subscribers.
