There was also one moment during my recent bout of playtime that stuck with me. I was sailing from A to B when I heard a strange noise, like something breaching. It's the Megalodon, swimming right beside my tiny sloop. I was legitimately worried, as I was no match for the beast and thought about how much I didn't want to die and have to start this particular journey over again. I decided to do nothing, and off it swam. It was the first I'd heard that the Megalodon was now a persistent part of the game -- a new, consistent threat to progress. Finally, some semblance of variety.
