Sea of Thieves is receiving its first free DLC expansion in a couple days, bringing a slew of new content to the pirate adventure. The Hungering Deep hits on May 29th, and will be followed by two other expansions called Cursed Sails and Forsaken Shores at later dates.
The Hungering Deep features new items, a story campaign, flags, exclusive cosmetics, and more.
The time-limited story campaign centers around Merrick the bard, who is Sea of Thieves’ first established character. Players will attempt to find Merrick in the world, and if successful, they can go against his nemesis to reap substantial rewards.
New cosmetics include tattoos and scars that can be added to your customized pirate. As for items, you can now use drums and a speaking trumpet which allows you to be heard from a distance. New flags for your ship will give you some new ways off signaling your intentions to other ships during your voyage.
