Sea of Thieves Update

Update has arrived for Sea of Thieves, and here’s the full list of changes and fixes added with this patch. Since its launch in 2018, Sea of Thieves has been offering players what they couldn’t get anywhere else; the perfect pirate experience. Being able to explore its enormous open-world map, hunt for treasures, fight enemy NPC’s, and other players; all of this while running your own ship. Not too long ago they even had a collaboration with Borderlands giving players a chance to get a ship called “Mayhem” inspired by the former franchise. Here’s everything new with Sea of Thieves Update
