The latest update for Sea of Thieves is all about giving players more time. If you have only a limited amount of time to play the game every week, for example? You get more chances to take part in different battle regions despite that. When treasure items show up in the middle of a battle? You have more time to pick them up. When a battle ends? You get more time to finish grabbing anything of importance to you.
The patch also fixes a number of undisclosed crashing bugs and several bug fixes, so players will no longer travel in unintended directions whilst being fired out of a cannon or get the wrong event banners whilst speaking with Gold Hoarder NPCs. So you’ll have more chances to do stuff, more time to do things, and more consistent game performance across the board. It’s the next best thing to more content.
You gave us feedback and we heard you! In this week's game update we've shifted the times of the Skeleton Ship battles so you'll have a chance to take on a different region battle each week in your usual gaming slot! Here's a handy schedule to tell you when to take to the seas. pic.twitter.com/C48fMMBbOQ
