Stones and spears might be the expected weapons for World War IV, but they’re also the tools that helped humankind survive the first couple hundred generations.

Sea of Thieves, the shared world, sandbox pirate adventure from developer Rare, turned one-year-old on March 20. To celebrate, Rare is putting together one heck of a birthday bash.

We chatted with Sea of Thieves executive producer Joe Neate to talk not only about the upcoming update, but also about lessons the team learned from launch a year ago and where the game might go in the future.
