The new A Pirate’s Life expansion has provided plenty of laughs since its launch two weeks ago, but it has not been the smoothest sailing. Multiple problems found within the five tall tales have prevented players from progressing as well as unlocking commendations. An initial hotfix looked to iron a few of the bugs with today’s digging even deeper.
Sea of Thieves Hotfix Release Notes
The focus of today’s hotfix is again on the five tall tales within Sea of Thieves: A Pirate’s Life story. ‘The Sunkern Pearl’ and ‘A Pirate’s Life’ get the majority of the attention with thirteen fixes between them. These range from minor details, such as animations playing correctly, to major ones that prevent players from getting stuck during their adventure.
The remaining three tall tales also get some fixes but with only a combined four between them. There is also a couple of general performance and stability improvements within the hotfix.
In order to raise anchor, you will need to download the patch before playing. PC gamers can expect a 1.88 GB download for Steam and 2.66 GB for Windows 10. Console gamers could have a slightly longer wait with a 2.07 GB – 3.23 GB download depending on which console you own.
For a complete rundown of today’s hotfix, as well as known issues yet to be resolved, you can catch the full release notes here.
