Sea of Thieves trailer shows features of anniversary update

Tall Tales are coming for those who like story, the Arena lets you get competitive, and the new Trading Company brings fresh mechanics too.

During the Inside Xbox show last night we got confirmation of the rumoured Xbox One S All-Digital Edition console, but on top of that we got to hear about several big games, including Sea of Thieves, with executive producer Joe Neate appearing to share more on what's coming with the free anniversary update - the biggest the game has received - on April 30.

The Arena, for example, is bringing 24-minute matches for those who want a competitive experience, while Tall Tales offers new quests with more story in them. Shores of Gold is the first collection, where we can "experience a story of love, honor and betrayal in search of the mythical Shores of Gold," as Microsoft puts it.

A new Trading Company known as The Hunter's Call was also discussed, offering new features like fishing (you can catch up to 50 types of fish), cooking, and hunting.

You can get a taste of these features in the trailer below, showing new gameplay as well. Is this the right time to jump back into Sea of Thieves?
