Sea of Thieves is a pirate game based on exploration developed by Rare studio. Rare is popular for lots of beloved franchises such as Conker, Banjo-Kazooie, and Golden Eye. In the past few years, the developer focused more on creating Kinect games targeted at Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Now, Rare is making its Sea of Thieves available on Xbox One and Windows 10 as well.

Sea of Thieves known issues and fixes

The game doesn’t spare players from a few problems such as performance issues on Xbox One X and a most recent one involving matchmaking and more server-related issues. Craig Duncan, Rare Studio Head and Joe Neate, Executive Producer finally decided to address all these problems, and they did so on YouTube.

The developers explained that there are already a few fixes schedules for deployment during the course of this week and they will also bring players a full client update.

In other words, Xbox One users will need to download another 9 GB for the game, and Xbox One X users will require downloading another 19 GB.

More changes coming for gamers

Developers decided that a full client update would be quicker and more efficient than just patching a few issues. This client update should solve Xbox One X performance issues as well. There are also being made changes to the server so that achievements and progression unlock straight at the moment when the requirements are achieved.

Duncan and Neate also stated that the studio also considers addressing more issues such as player vs. player spawning problems and grieving. The death penalty was scrapped, and this would attract the deduction of gold following all player vs. computer-controller enemy deaths.

Sea of Thieves is a new challenge for Rare

When Phil Spencer was named the head of Xbox back in 2014, he assigned Rare a brand new project called Sea of Thieves which was quite a challenge and a shift for the developers, as the team at Rare hasn’t tried something like this until then.

Pricing and availability

Sea of Thieves is currently available at retailers priced at $59.99. You can also find the game as part of the monthly Xbox Game pass subscription priced at $9.99.

Another great news involves the fact that all gamers who buy an Xbox One X receive a free copy of the game, but if you’re interested, you should hurry up because the offer is limited.
