After mixed reviews of Rare’s massive online pirate game, they have just released new DLC. The Hungering Deep, which is the first of 3 add-ons coming this summer, yes there will be some new content, mostly cosmetic, but this will have limited time missions and content!
Only running for 2 weeks you’ll have the chance to sail the high seas searching for a Megaladon. But with Rare already saying what is being added is staying in game do you really have to play the game to get any of the new items of bonuses, I guess. So what exactly is going to be time sensitive? Is it going to be the same style missions just wrapped up in a different bow with different paper?
If you are brand new to the game are you going to be completely overwhelmed by the new content? Or what if you’re a returning player are you going to be stoked or just left to do the same repetitive mission types over and over?
Rare has also added a new communication system using “the speaking trumpet” and a flag system. Again sounds like they are just adding another layer to their mmorp-chat room experience?
The only advantage I’ve found is this DLC is FREE. Hopefully Rare will listen to the community and “up their game” with better combat and a more immersive mission system. Till then, find some scurvy rapscallions and go off the beaten path and just searching for loot.
