Sea Of Thieves Gets a New Patch With Customizations and Bug Fixes

Posted by April 18, 2018 Comment

There have been a few complaints about Sea Of Thieves since it launched, and one of the big ones seemed to be customization of the ships as there were only a couple of options. To be blunt, it seems like fans expected more and were mad when there wasn’t. The latest patch that went live today will have a new design, as you can see below, sold at the Legendary Hideout. The team at Rare also decided to fix a number of bugs that people have been running into throughout Sea Of Thieves, which we’ve included below from the full list of patch notes.

  • Sound Effects – Players will now hear a new sound effect when they open a Lore Book and when a Merchant Alliance contract has expired.
  • Spring Cleaning – It is now easier to place chests and skulls on shelves in the Captain’s Cabin, and to drop items overboard!
