Sea of Thieves Latest Update Brings UI Improvements, Ship Changes, & More
Rare has released a new update to their open world pirating experience, Sea of Thieves. In this new patch, the team is focusing on bringing improvements to various aspects that players engage with on a daily basis. For example, the developers have decided to relocate the ammo crates on both the Galleon and Sloop to make it easier to access while engaging in combat. Another feature that was changed was improve the UI to preview items in the Vanity & Clothes chests, making things load more gracefully.
In addition to the new Sea of Thieves patch below, the team also teased some information for players to look ahead for:
There’s rumour that a new shipment of clothing, items, weapons and ship customisations are on the horizon and heading for the Sea of Thieves! If you are saving yer coin for a pair of trousers, you might want to keep a weathered eye out for this arriving soon!”
So get your scalawag crew together and take to the salty sea to unlock all the booty and send your enemies to Davy Jones!
