Sea of Thieves turns one, patches in birthday gifts, merc voyages, and Arches tease

    
9

Sea of Thieves is turning one year old today and getting an anniversary patch. Today’s patch is not the anniversary patch, however. That’s coming “a little further down the line.” No, today’s patch is going to tide you over with content, including a set of new mercenary voyages, birthday goodies in your inventory and in the cash shop, the Molten Sands Fortress, new player tutorial tweaks, and Xbox One mouse and keyboard support.

Combat’s also received some balancing tweaks today. “The forced firing delay has been removed when wielding a gun after sprinting or undocking, allowing players to fire sooner. The forced firing delay when switching weapons still remains to prevent fast switching and firing between guns,” Rare says. “Players are now able to switch weapons/items at any point during a light sword attack. Players are still prevented from switching during a heavy sword attack.”

There’s a bit of a tease for the future too. Happy birthday, Sea of Thieves.

“Work appears to have begun around the Arches rock formation. What could they be building?”

How do you know how to type words when you don’t know how to read them?

Man, I grinded to Pirate Legend this weekend and all I got were some golden cosmetics. (Jk Happy birthday Sea of Thieves).

And there’s the update teased for the end of April. Looks like ships can now have their main mast (crow’s nest/primary sail) knocked down, the arena is coming, something called ‘Tall Tales’ (story-based quests?) is coming, oh, and of course the best part: Fishing.

Yeah I spent basically all of Sunday grinding it up, in the last 8 hours or so I lucked out hard and got into a pretty well-organized Alliance discord server where I just ran skull forts/fleets all night long and into Monday morning.

Used a good chunk of my doubloons to buy the gilded commendations or whatever so I could close out what levels I needed for Merchant Alliance/Order of Souls.

Great. Now I’m going to need the part of brain which processed that imagery seared out by a laser.
