Rare discusses fishing and other systems in Sea of Thieves

A few weeks ago, Microsoft revealed that Sea of Thieves was getting a massive "Anniversary Update" which added single-player stories, fishing, and much more. However, the company didn't provide more details about exactly what to expect — and how fishing works — until now.

Pigs and many other items have been added to the game. For example, you can cook a variety of different foods on a makeshift stove. That's just one of the many changes Rare discusses in the video below.

Sea of Thieves is an exploration-based pirate game that features great sailing mechanics, but the open-ended plot doesn't appeal to everyone. You have to find your own path as it mostly relies on emergent experiences. Over the past few months, developer Rare has promised numerous changes to the game — from combat to quests — and through constant updates, has managed to turn it around. Recently, Sea of Thieves even became the most-viewed game on Twitch.

The game is available on Amazon at a discounted price, but it's also a part of Xbox Game Pass. You can subscribe to the service for $1 at the moment.
