Die Entwickler der Rare Ltd. haben aktuell eine weiteres Update für das Piraten-MMO Sea of Thieves veröffentlicht. Mit dem Patch auf die Version 1.2.5. werde eine Reihe von Bugs beseitigt, die das Spielen zu Letzt massiv belastet hatten. Mit dem Update zum Event Cursed Crews hatten sich neue Bugs ins Spiel geschlichen, so war es u.a. nicht mehr möglich, legendäre Reisen abzuschließen, an den Strand gespülte Skelettschädel aufzuheben oder Schweine zu füttern.

Hier die Patchnotes zum Nachlesen:

Updates
  • Bilge Rat Doubloons – To reward pirates who keep the skeleton scourge at bay, Doubloons for Cursed Crews Commendations will remain available to earn even after the Cursed Crews Bilge Rat Adventure ends.
  • Senior Producer Drew provides some more insight into why this change was made in this Forum Post.
  • Empty Barrel Tooltip – Barrels now display a tooltip to indicate they are empty. Players will no longer need to interact with a barrel in order to discover there is nothing inside.
  • Resource Balancing – Barrels are less likely to be found empty in the world, helping to reducing the time taken to restock ships.
  • Quick Menu – The "Equipment" and "Resources" tabs within the Quick Menu have been swapped around as the "Resources" tab is used most commonly and should be the easiest to access.
  • Here, Take This… Too! – Players can now give and share treasure items in the same way they give and take cannonballs and bananas! Gunpowder Kegs and the Chest of a Thousand Grogs will still need to be dropped to be exchanged.
Fixed Issues
  • Fixed issue with telescope clipping.
  • Caged pigs can now be fed again!
  • Bounty Skulls which are washed up on islands can now be picked up.
  • The Hunter Jacket and Trousers now display with their correct colours.
  • Solo sailor crews can now access Crew Privacy settings.
  • Items placed at the bow of the Brigantine can now be picked back up.
  • It is no longer possible to be kicked out of the ship’s Cannonball Barrel inventory due to the ship’s movement on the waves.
  • Players hit by the Emote Cursed Cannonball will no longer experience the hit animation when the effect wears off.
  • It is no longer possible to scroll through the UI on the Ship Selection Menu.
  • Shooting a Blunderbuss underwater will now display the correct VFX.
Known Issues
  • Merchant Alliance crates on board a ship which sinks will not float to the surface and cannot be picked up. We have identified the issue and we’re working on a fix.
  • Gold Metal Skeletons cannot be affected by buckets of water. We have a fix for this coming in a future update.

Die Größe des Updates beträgt für PC-Spieler knapp 1,2 GiB, Spieler der XBox One-Version dürfen knapp 2,0 GiB herunterladen.
