Forsaken Shores Update Ready to Set Sail on September 19th
The next major update to Sea of Thieves, Forsaken Shores, is ready to set sail on September 19th. The announcement came during Gamescom 2018. Players will find a new volcanic location called Devil's Roar, an island that will erupt from time to time that will have a significant impact on players, even to the point of being boiled to death when near the overheated waters around the island. Players will need a rowboat to safely travel from ship to shore.
Players will also find a new mission type called Cargo Runs that, as the name implies, tasks sailors with moving things from one place to another safely.
