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.

Aside from releasing a new trailer for the "Forsaken Shores" expansion which launches in a few weeks, Executive Producer Joe Neate said that the team introduced a number of bugs in the previous Sea of Thieves build and promised to do better next time. Aside from that, radical changes to the inventory system weren't communicated properly. Features like this will be talked about separately going forward, so everyone knows what's going on.

Changes like "Take All" or "Deposit All" are also coming to inventories. Soon you'll be able to go up to any barrel and either take all of its recourses or leave all of yours in there for future use. There's plenty of new content coming too.

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."
