With Rare’s new update structure, The Sea of Thieves players can log on and experience time-limited adventures around the world. These small updates offer bits of narrative content that players can explore – like a mysterious fog enveloping the Golden Sands Outpost, or a daring raid to save its inhabitants from stone forts erected from the sea. When one adventure leaves, another comes to take its place in the world. The next adventure gets players summoning the legendary Shrouded Ghost megalodon in search of a powerful artifact.
Rare released a short cinematic teaser for Shrouded Deep, in which the longtime character and star of the game’s first expansion, Merrick, mumbles ominously about artifacts, the worlds between, and the albino-shrouded ghost shark. Merrick is interrupted when Belle, our ghost ally from previous adventures, shows up on a recently restored ship: the Killer Whale. Long time The Sea of Thieves players will know the killer whale as a shipwreck Merrick once sailed, serving as a prominent underwater landmark.
We’re going on a Meg hunt!

The adventure will be available from April 21 to May 12. These adventures are time-limited and run alongside a traditional kampas season. Fairy tales are largely narrative, meaning that a player can keep up with the overall story as they play. So far, we’ve seen Spanish ghosts and spectral pirate friends, so it’s exciting to think about what could be next.
