Rarely holds a Sea of Thieves community day is on january 30 and the team is drawing out the roadmap and the 2022 plan for the game before the event. Some of the changes include a focus on world building, the ending of the Arena, a new narrative series called Adventures and Mysteries beyond the original. regular season event, and more.
According to the team update, “one of our main goals for 2022 is to make our pirate world more dynamic and make it more dynamic. Stories, whether they be the ones we tell or the ones created by the players themselves, are at the heart of Sea of Thieves.”
Sea of Thieves will continue look at the seasons at normal speed. Adventures are limited in time, but they will last at least two weeks to establish the story and give the community a chance to develop the story. The first adventure is out on February 17th and it’s called Shielded Islands. Season six is scheduled for March. Mysteries will let you solve puzzles and uncover treasures and secrets both inside and outside the game in order to serve a larger story. Mystery will stay around longer than Adventure.
Some of the game’s focus will be on new content in the second half of season six including a Legend-exclusive ride, which will include challenges that change each time you set sail and explore.
One of the other big changes is the closure of The Arena. Arena never achieved the goal the team had set for it, and devoting resources to it while trying to create adventures in the end wasn’t worth it. While engagement never exceeds a consistent 2% of the player base at any time, and active development stopped in December 2020, Rare maintains it, but it’s time to continue. Arena will officially close at the start of its sixth season on March 10, 2022.
