During XO19, developer Rare revealed the following expansion of Sea of Thieves. The update is story driven and has the name The Seabound Soul.

The Seabound Soul update tells the story of Captain Pendragon. This captain is trying to unravel the mystery of a strange ship called the Ashen Dragon. The update introduces a new enemy to the world of Sea of ​​Thieves and players can expect the story to unravel over the coming months.

Unlike previous updates to this pirate game, this expansion is told as a Tell Tale game, in other words, the update revolves around a story being added. Players experience, together with the crew of Captain Pendragon, typical pirate adventures and must complete all sorts of tasks and missions for him.

In addition to the story-driven update, a new danger is also being introduced, namely fire. This means that players can fire bombs at each other for the first time. In addition, controlled fires can get out of hand, for example when roasting a fish.

Incidentally, Rare unveiled their latest game Everwild yesterday, but according to the developer this means nothing for the maintenance of Sea of ​​Thieves. Players can still expect the same effort from the team as before.
