New content in Sunless Sea!

By Hannah Flynn, October 11, 2016 · Sunless Sea Zubmariner

We’re beginning the launch day celebrations for Zubmariner with a delicious piece of news for all owners of Sunless Sea: we’ve given you some chunky new quests in the base game! You don’t need to buy Zubmariner to enjoy them (though some will give you a little taste of what’s in store, down below).

New faces in London

Each time you create a captain, you’ll meet a passenger who wants to recruit you in London, and begin a unique quest. There are a total of four new passengers to meet, and all of these quests contain foreshadowing regarding Zubmariner.

Your old friend, the Blind Bruiser

When the Blind Bruiser asks you to carry cargo, you can now ask if there’s another task he’d like you to do instead. There are two different, new quests to discover, both to do with the Cheery Man…

Mutton Island: Apocalypses

After you’ve made a few trips to London, strange events will start happening on Mutton Island.

Rose Market, Revamped

Opportunities at the Rose Market are no longer randomly determined every time you visit London. Instead, they’ll stick around until you fulfill one, or until you ask for them to change. This means that Rose Market requests acts as mini-quests, and you can set zail knowing what items will fetch a good price.

What bounty! If all this whets your appetite for Zubmariner, you don’t have long to wait. Release is at 6pm BST / 10am PDT today.

Do you need to start a new game to access the new content or is it rolled into an existing save?

Hey Failbettern, will the zubmariner content be tailored towards the end-game, or is it better to restart as a new captain, with lots of early game material?
