The fifth post release patch was released yesterday for Sea of Thieves. It mostly fixes bugs such as sinking ships flying in the air when sunk and weapon loadouts, but there are some minor convenience changes too. There is no new content.
The fourth post release patch was released on Wednesday for Sea of Thieves. It mostly fixes bugs such as various UI issues but “the first legendary ship customisations” for Pirate Legends have been added.
The third post release patch was released on Wednesday for Sea of Thieves. It mostly fixes some bugs such as the problem with having two weapons, but the main change is adding a message on the Ferry of the Damned instructing players how to scuttle their ships. There is no new content been added to the game so far.
Sea of Thieves at the moment is an acquired taste like Marmite. If you are willing to look pass all its shortcoming there is some fun to be had but it is undoubtedly a skeleton of a game. Therefore I have come up with three very easy ways the game could be improved by the developers in literally a few hours.
