Still arr-ing and ahoy-matey-ing and avast-ye-ing in Sea of Thieves? Today’s patch… well, it’s a wee one. Rare says it’s fixed a bunch of bugs, including the install bug, the “falling through the boat” bug, the matchmaking lockup, and the bounty captain spawn bug. You also can’t screw up mermaid teleporting anymore. And as for the ongoing griefing?
“When a ship sinks, we have significantly increased the distance at which the crews new ship will respawn. Ships will now respawn outside of visible view of the ship that sank them. This is in response to lots of player feedback which highlighted that the previous spawn distance was resulting in ‘griefing’ behaviour and stalemates at the forts!”
The studio does note it’s still aware of character customization borkups, delayed achievements, weapon equip issues, and DLC display problems.
If you’re grumpy about the amount of content in the game, or want to spar with those who are, the Twitter thread on the patch is for you. Also Reddit, where people are freaking out over theories that Rare is “withholding content” while people bail out of the game.
Thank you for all the feedback you have provided so far, pirates! You can view the latest patch notes here, which include an update to ship respawn distance! https://t.co/hgoVUGkhC8
