Summary

  • Everwild will give you memorable, engaging, and meaningful experiences for players everywhere to share
  • Sea of Thieves, The Seabound Soul, features an all-new, lore-focused Tall Tale mission for players looking to play their part in a thrilling story

Even
for a studio with as long and rich a legacy as Rare, today has been a special
day.

At
this evening’s X019 event in London, we were able to share with fans some of
the incredible things that the different teams at Rare have been working on.
This included talking about the next monthly update for Sea of Thieves,
as well as giving fans a first glimpse of the next new IP from Rare, Everwild.

It
reminds me of the last time we made two big announcements at an event, which
was E3 2015 where we announced Rare Replay and showed the world the
first glimpse into our unique vision for Sea of Thieves. This feels as
big a moment for Rare as it did in 2015.

While
Everwild is still early in development, we are very excited about the
unique potential of the game we are creating. The Everwild team is focused
on building an experience that allows for new ways to play in a natural and
magical world. The development team, led by Executive Producer Louise O’Connor,
is creating something truly original and incredibly special that aims to be
more than just a new IP. Everwild will give you memorable, engaging and
meaningful experiences for players everywhere to share. We cannot wait to share
more with you in the future.

We are also pleased to share the next free monthly update to Sea of Thieves, The Seabound Soul, arriving on November 20. This update features an all-new, lore-focused Tall Tale mission for players looking to play their part in a thrilling story. Join Captain Pendragon to uncover the mystery of the feared ship, the Ashen Dragon, and reveal the secrets of a sinister new threat. For those yet to play a Tall Tale, these narrative driven stories are our take on a “campaign” but set within a rich shared world of Adventure. This update also brings the heat to Sea of Thieves with the introduction of firebombs! This explosive ammo can be thrown or loaded into cannons to put a fiery panic in the hearts of opposing crews in both Adventure and in The Arena. Added to this there are new commendations and cosmetics to earn and buy in the Pirate Emporium. You can play Sea of Thieves on Windows 10 PC, Xbox One and with Xbox Game Pass.

Having
two large games in development represents a tremendous opportunity for Rare and
the talented staff here as we grow and further evolve the studio to meet the
challenges of simultaneously operating a successful live service and being in
pre-production for a new IP. While Everwild and the team building it will
get everything they need, we are still fully committed to Sea of Thieves
— Joe, Mike, Shelley and the team still have plenty of creative ideas and
plans to bring to Sea of Thieves for a long time to come and we have a
number of central teams that support both games.

Finally,
on behalf of everyone at the studio I’d like to thank all the fans for their
tremendous support for Rare, from the millions of players who play Sea of
Thieves
to those that engage with our community playing together and
sharing stories. It means a huge amount to us and it’s the passion of our fans
that inspires our team to create the kind of games the world doesn’t have that
are uniquely Rare.
