Rare and Sea of Thieves have made it through 2020 with quite impressive results, and the dev is adamant that their swashbuckling adventure will only get better.
"We’ve been busy with more than the regular updates you’ve already experienced: we’re hard at work behind the scenes on some significant changes that will lead us into 2021, with plans in motion for how we continue supporting the game and some major news still to come. Sea of Thieves isn’t slowing down any time soon", the studio wrote in their latest blog post .
Unfortunately, the team also had to rethink the end-of-year updates in order to allow focus on Sea of Thieves features coming beyond individual updates.
What this means in practice is that November's Sea of Thieves update will be mostly a quality of life update, focusing on bug fixes and improvements to the core game experience. There won't be a shortage of things to do, though, and the Pirate Emporium will be restocked with new goodies.
Thanks to the progression of weekly Challenges and Voyages through the Fate of the Damned update, all the Challenges and Voyages are unlocked and available, and will remain as such until December 9, 2020. If you're still planning on snatching up Soulflame weapons and gear, this should be music to your ears.
If you're keen on getting the Fightin' Frogs Ship Set but haven't earned it by playing through Act I of the new Battletoads , then worry not as November's Emporium update will let anyone buy it. The Hunter's Call Forager Parrot and Monkey will be joining the fun, along with Bone Crusher Outfits for all species, cats and dogs included.
