In the last article, we talked about confirmed content, it’s time to look at the hints and hope they might be true. Here is our overview of all the stuff that has been found by redditors and other community members in datamining or elsewhere. Keep in mind that this list is highly speculative!
For this article we worked together with Captain Grim. Go and watch his video, he mentions some additional stuff!
- Visible in the picture above.
- Audio files found. https://vocaroo.com/i/s1AwD7B0nMXb
- Probably not usable by players anytime soon.
- Pictures of it exist since the beginning.
- Visible in a video.
- Maybe just the first version of the hurdy-gurdy.
- Spotted in shops in the game.
- Mentioned in datamines.
- Rare said in the AMA that it’s almost ready.
- Shown in one of their videos, see above.
- Would make a lot of sense, since there are a lot of underwater ruins that aren’t used for anything yet.
- Hinted in datamines and in the AMA?
- “New visitors soon there may be, traveling far across the sea, depth of night with eyes aglow, crawling the earth cast in shadow.”
- The following weapon types were found in the datamines:
- Boarding Axe
- Heavy Sword
- Some of them are visible on pictures.
- Others can be found in shops.
- Other possible weapons that only exist as pictures:
The following fruit types were found in the datamines:
- Fish meat
- Shark meat
- Has been mentioned multiple times.
- Found in datamining.
- A way to talk farther in a specific direction.
- Seems to be almost ready.
- Not much is known.
- Just a very short mention.
- Shop that is looking like it is made for potions was open in the stress tests.
- Door is closed now and interior removed.
- Picture of a character holding a potion above.
- Found in datamining.
- Possible microtransaction.
- Kraken set found in datamining.
- Personal customization and ship customzation
- The steering wheel can be found in an ingame shop.
- Rare confirmed earlier that the Kraken was supposed to have rewards.
- There is a good chance the evolved kraken and its rewards are connected.
- Rare stated in their AMA that
- “The Kraken as a threat might evolve…”.
The following ship customization types were found in the datamines:
- Harpoon gun
- Nameable ship crest
This is very likely all just connected tot he “Captaincy update”, read more here.
- Customization options for kitchens were found in the datamining.
- Since cooking on ships was always very important in history, we might see this at some point.
- What else would fish and shark meat be for?
More sea monsters
- Rare said in the AMA that they want to enrich the game in every aspect when people asked for sea monsters.
- There are pictures of those in the artbook and ingame as paintings.
- The demand for fishing is extremely high.
- There have been hints by Rare, that this is actually coming to SoT.
- As mentioned above, fish meat was found in the files.
- A Dodo can be seen in the artbook.
We know that some of this is a bit too vague. Please understand that many many more hints were found in the datamines, but we tried to stay as close to what could actually come as we could. We can’t give you the direct names or sources of these datamines since Rare doesn’t really like that. All this is just speculation and hope that Rare follows these possible ideas they once had or still have.
Thanks a lot for reading!
We hope we did a good job at giving you an overview of the tons of info we collected. We will be posting some more in-depth articles about some of the topics in the near future, so stay tuned!
