Sea of Thieves has grown quite a bit since the game’s original release a few months back and players continue to dive into their own sea-faring adventures each and every day. Not too long ago, players were able to dive into The Hungering Deep, the first real event for Sea of Thieves. Now, players can dive back into Sea of Thieves and expect the return of massive and dangerous megalodons, which they’ll find throughout the waters of the world.

The patch for update 1.1.3 also brings about quite a few additional changes and fixes, which we’ve included below. Take a look at all the information included in the patch below to see what’s changed and what they’re still working on right now.

Updates

  • Megalodon - Since the retreat of The Hungering One back into the deep, there have been reported sightings of other Megalodons terrorising the Sea of Thieves. It's been discovered that these new Megalodons have different personalities – some seem to turn tail at the sight of a Galleon, whilst others are said to be just as unforgiving as The Hungering One!
  • Gold bag icons - The icons for the Bilge Rat gold bags have been updated to better show the value of the gold within!

Performance Improvements

  • Reduced frequency of client hangs on Skeleton Forts.
  • Significantly improved stability when loading new areas.
  • Multiple server and client crash fixes. 
    Further improvements and optimisations for all platforms are ongoing.

Fixed Issues

  • Resolved an 'X Marks the Spot' location on Kraken's Fall where the chest was impossible to dig up.
  • Grand Admiral Hull livery on the Sloop now correctly matches the Galleon.
  • Resolved an issue causing the PC client to hang upon closing.

Known Issues

  • Galleons currently have an increased turning speed.
  • Some players travel in an unintended direction when fired from a cannon.
  • Being poisoned by a snake can show the VFX a second time.
  • Bilge Rat Doubloons have not been correctly rewarded to a number of players who earned them through the Skeleton Thrones event. 
    We are investigating a resolution for this and will share information when available.
  • The Hungering Deep rewards were not received by a number of players who earned them. 
    We are currently rolling out a fix to this issue which will award missing rewards from The Hungering Deep. This will take some time, so keep an eye on the weekly patch notes to see when this rollout is complete.

The download for the update will sail in at around 2.95GB on the Xbox One, and the Xbox One X. PC users can look forward to a 2.33GB download.
