SOMETHING STIRS IN THE DEEP… JOIN THE HUNT WHILE YOU CAN!
The Hungering Deep is here, the first of Sea of Thieves' free content updates! A range of permanent new game features are rising from the depths, introduced by a special time-limited campaign.
From May 29th, follow the trail of riddles and rumours to piece together what happened to 'Merry' Merrick, the proud owner of a pair of matching peg legs. Along the way, discover new features like the drum, ship's flags, speaking trumpet (for shouting at other pirates) and selectable tattoos and scars (for looking good while shouting at other pirates)!
These items will remain in-game but the campaign is only around for a limited time, so join the hunt now to experience The Hungering Deep in full and earn exclusive rewards that only those who unravel Merrick's tale can enjoy. Perhaps a new arrival in your nearest tavern can set you on the trail…
NEW ARRIVALS ON THE SEA OF THIEVES
Rumours of something old, vast and hungry are surfacing throughout the Sea of Thieves. Keep your ears to the ground in the taverns, as a group of adventure-seekers calling themselves the Bilge Rats have already heard a few juicy morsels about something stirring below the waves. Dare you seek out the truth?
FOLLOW THE TRAIL OF RIDDLES AND RUMOURS
The Sea of Thieves changes as often as the tides, so don't miss out! Join this time-limited adventure that leads from the outpost taverns to lonely, forgotten isles, piecing together the tale of Merrick the bard and his brush with hungering horror. Those who can find him and untangle his groggy recollection of events can join the hunt for his nemesis – and reap the rewards!
NEW FEATURES RISE FROM THE DEEP
The Hungering Deep adds these permanent new features to the ongoing Sea of Thieves experience.
New Threat! Such a monstrous peril won't be easily vanquished. The risk of encountering it out at sea will live on.
Drums! On the Sea of Thieves, it pays to bang your own drum. Pirate percussionists can let loose with this new instrument and play shanties with a bit more impact.
Speaking Trumpets! All that drumming drowning out your orders? Use the new speaking trumpet to be heard at a distance and find other crews on the same voyage.
Flags! Discover a new way to signal your intentions to other crews. Forge new friendships, or find new foes…
Tattoos and Scars! The Hungering Deep expands the vanity chest: choose your tattoos and scars to tell your own pirate story.
TOOTHSOME NEW TRAPPINGS
Alongside these new features, The Hungering Deep offers time-limited campaign items such as a special figurehead, unique drum variant and speaking trumpet, plus the Hungering Tattoo Set and some scars perfect for born survivors. Also arriving at the Shipwright during The Hungering Deep but remaining once the campaign ends is the new Shark Hunter ship livery set with hull, sails, figurehead and flag that may help you find like-minded individuals on the open seas...
WATCH THE WAVES, PIRATES
The Sea of Thieves ebbs and flows constantly, bringing new events, new adventures and new rewards! Want to stay on the crest of the wave? Share a grog with the Bilge Rats, rumour-sniffers and thrill-seekers extraordinaire. The first step is easy – take part in the challenges of The Hungering Deep and don't end up with two shoes too many, like poor old Merrick.
