Sea of Thieves' new update changes a little and fixes a lot

0

New cosmetics, ahoy!

The rough-and-tumble waters of Sea of Thieves are getting a bit more hospitable. Well, not from other players. They'll still kill you right dead. But the game itself keeps getting more and more polished.

Rare has released update 1.0.5 for Sea of Thieves. There isn't a single change to really latch onto. Like, the same shanty won't play twice in a row anymore, and interface screens fade in now. That's quality of life stuff -- not the sort of thing that significantly changes the player experience. (Rare does also mention that new cosmetics for clothes, weapons, items, and ships are coming soon.)

This patch does have its share of fixes and improvements, though. Each bulletpoint is a minor frustration melting away. All the exact details of the 1.0.5 update are listed below:

Updates:

  • New Message from Beyond -- The Ferryman was unhappy with the text that had been written describing how to 'Scuttle' a ship, so he made them write a better version -- and then walk the plank.
  • Reload! -- Adjusted position of the Ammo Crates on both ships, so they are easier to interact with.
  • Play the next song! -- Players will no longer play the same shanty twice in a row.
  • UI Improvements -- Images in the Vanity & Clothing Chests now load gracefully when browsing. In addition all UI screens now fade in when opened -- Fancy!

Fixed Issues:

  • Resolved issues where Skeleton Fort or Bounty Quest Skeletons failed to spawn correctly. 
    We have been resolving these spawning issues across the last 2 updates (1.0.3, 1.0.4), however with this update (1.0.5) we have now resolved all known reported spawning issues. If you find any further problem islands, please log a Support Ticket noting the island and we will investigate further.
  • Players will no longer be stuck with a single weapon slot and players weapon choice will now also persist across sessions. 
    Players who were experiencing the Single Weapon Slot issue will now be resolved as soon as they load into game. No more early visits to the Ferryman required!
  • Ships will no longer ping up into the sky when sinking. 
    In loving memory of the sky ships. This was our favourite!
  • [PC] Push to talk option will no longer reset to default (disabled) between sessions.
  • "You Can Always Trust The Untrustworthy" achievement can now be unlocked.
  • Kraken is no longer able to spawn around rocks.
  • Kraken tentacle should always be visible when holding a player.
  • Pocket watch should no longer display as closed when being shown to another player.
  • Skeletons and animals should no longer despawn when players climb in and out of the cannon.
  • Rogue Sea Dog Trousers and Royal Sovereign Trousers should now unlock when the requirements are met.
  • Lore Item descriptions are now localised.
  • Reduced popping of UI in Quick Menu.
  • It is no longer possible to clip through the ship when jumping on the Banana Barrel.
  • Wrong company icon is no longer incorrectly displayed for a split second if user is trying to get XP from 2 different companies.
  • It is no longer possible to drop behind the bar and get stuck in the Pirate Hideout.
  • Updates to incorrect NPC dialogue lines.
  • Getting into a cannon then getting back out should no longer skip the Tutorial.
  • Players just outside the inky murk will now hear Kraken fight audio when it attacks other ships.
  • Resolved issue where players could hear repeating audio SFX.
  • Resolved issue where Gunpowder kegs could spawn outside of player reach.

Performance Improvements:

  • Fixed a potential client deadlock when encountering a networking error.
  • Multiple server crash fixes. 
    Further improvements and optimisations for all platforms are ongoing.

Known Issues:

  • Some players cannot see their downloadable content in game. 
    Once you redeem your code, here is a Support Article that shows you where to find your items in game. If you still cannot find your items in game, please raise a support ticket to log this issue.
  • Players may experience details of their pirate (such as hair colour / scars) looking different from their initial selection. 
    We are working on a way for our Customer Support team to reset your pirate to your original selection. If you have experienced this bug, please ensure you have logged a Support Ticket for this issue.
  • Players may encounter a grey screen when launching the game. 
    Some players have found that following this guide and/or this Support Article resolves this issue.
  • Players are experiencing delayed achievements and commendations from in-game actions. 
    We are working on a way for our Customer Support team to re-award these achievements and commendations back to players.
