Sea Of Thieves Latest Patch Includes A Banjo-Kazooie Figurehead

It’s all about the birthdays this week isn’t it? It’s the NHS 70th, the RAF’s 100th, Rocket League’s 3rd, and Banjo-Kazooie is the gran old age of twenty. To celebrate this fact Rare have added a  ‘Bear & Bird Figurehead’ to Sea of Thieves which you can buy for 1998 gold, the year the game launched.

There’s also a load of tweaks and twiddles as usual, here are the full patch notes:

Updates

  • Bear & Bird Figurehead – Now stocked by the Shipwright to celebrate Banjo-Kazooie’s 20th anniversary.
  • Rock the Boat – Upon impact, cannonballs now apply a rocking effect to ships.
  • PC Exit to Desktop – Players on PC now have the ability to exit to desktop from the front end.
  • Shop Clutter – Player Titles no longer remain in the shop when purchased, reducing the amount of clutter in the clothing shops.

Performance Improvements

  • Multiple server and client crash fixes.
    Further improvements and optimisations for all platforms are ongoing.

Fixed Issues

  • Multiple Megalodons will no longer spawn in the same zone.
  • Megalodon encounter music will no longer be heard on the Ferry.
  • ‘Crew Management’ and the ‘Allow Friends to Join’ text is now localised to all languages.
  • There is no longer an invisible rock in Thieves’ Haven.
  • ‘Skeleton Exploder’ Title now shows the correct icon in the Vanity Chest.
  • There is no longer a wall on Plunder Valley that players can clip through to see outside the map.
  • VFX for lighting a gunpowder barrel now correctly appear connected to the fuse.
  • Players will no longer be teleported back to their ship when they shoot themselves from the cannon on the north side of Devil’s Ridge.
  • Header and footer UI in shops is now consistent with the rest of the UI menus.
  • The ‘More’ button on all radials now properly updates when key bindings are changed and will no longer remain the same button.
  • Resource barrels on ships will not longer periodically restock if they are below the default level.

Known Issues

  • The ‘Gunpowder Plot’ Commendation and it’s Legendary Commendation counterpart may not unlock.
    This issue appears to be intermittent and we are investigating its root cause. We are aware that for some players, retrying the Commendation correctly awards it.
  • Some players travel in an unintended direction when fired from a cannon.
  • 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 investigating a resolution for this and will share information when available.
