Pour out a grog as this week makes the last Developer Update in its current form. But we do get information on when to expect the changes to their video content roll-out happening.



Developer Update

Executive Producer Joe Neate speaks this week about the reception to Legends of the Sea, the impact Opt-In/Out Crossplay Preference in Adventure Mode has had so far, and more

  • Aaron Leigh, originally a deckhand on the official forums now a designer on the game, showed a lot of passion and dedication for the concept of the Player Commemoration, and what eventually led to being Legends of the Sea has been worked on for some time now, thinking about ways to integrate the Commemorations more into the gameplay

Weekly Developer Stream

Host Jon McFarlane is joined today by Community and Design Intern Aaron Leigh, and guest PedroDBR. They plan to do as much of the Legends of the Sea Commendations as possible, all whilst tackling a Gilded Athena’s Voyage… Are they successful in cashing in all that loot? And who’s that stowaway?!

About the idea behind Umbra and the Legends of the Sea…

From the very beginning of Sea of Thieves, during the Technical Alphas and Betas, Rare decided to start immortalising players by way of ‘Easter Eggs’. It started off as things like eating the most bananas or swimming the most miles. These things have been in the game for a long time, but with Legends of the Sea they’ve been able to add additional context to them in a way that is thematically linked to the game. In a way it makes the players seem more part of the world and that they’ve helped to shape it, whilst celebrating them.
