Sea of Thieves Forsaken Shores is Live, New Island, Quest, and Loot Revealed

Survive the Devil's Roar.

After a slight delay Sea of Thieves' newest free update, Forsaken Shores, is finally available. Included in the new DLC is a new island known as the Devil's Roar, a high-level area full of volcano dangers, earthquakes, and rare loot.

The Devil's Roar is the newest, and most difficult new island in the Sea of Thieves. Quests on the island involve dodging volcano debris, avoiding hot magma and geysers, staying balanced during earthquakes, and avoiding the heated wars made deadly by the volcano fire.

To help you with the challenging new island Rare added new rowboats that players can use to help them solve quests and travel between their ship and the Devil's Roar. Players can even take the rowboats by hitching them to their main ships.

Along with the Devil's Roar are a new form of quests called Cargo Run. They involve safely transporting valuable materials like fabrics and rum safely to their delivery destination. The rougher these cargos are handled the worse shape they'll be when they make it to their delivers and the less gold you'll earn.

With your new gold you can also travel to outposts which cropped up across the sea. They sell limited items but at a marked discount so if you're looking for an item, these little outpost shops are worth seeking out.

Forsaken Shores is the third free content update Rare's added to Sea of Thieves, but it won't be the last. Rare is now all-in on the games-as-service model as evident from when we spoke to Rare at E3 this year.
