In the past few hours, at the end of the maintenance work on the servers, Rare released the Patch 1.01 for Sea of Thieves, which aims to improve the stability and quality of the gaming experience.
To be precise, this is not a simple update, since the entire client of the game has been replaced. Users will then have to download up to 19.53 GB of data, based on the platform they play on.
Xbox One: 9.99GB
Xbox One X: 18.97GB
Windows 10: 19.53GB
Technically, Rare could have worked on optimizing the size and releasing a smaller patch, but this would have caused a significant delay in publication. The team preferred to make improvements available as soon as possible. This will not be repeated in the future, as the next update will be much smaller.
The update solved, among other things, the following problems:
1. Objects and missing weapons at the start of the game.
2. Objects of the Black Dog pack absent (for those who have pre-ordered the game)
3. Performance issues on the Xbox One X version.
For more information, we advise you to consult the official changelog at this address. In the coming days, Rare will continue to work on improving Sea of Thieves in order to solve the other problems reported by the players, such as the details of the characters that disappear (eye color, beard, etc.) and the lack of assignment of the Achievements.
The latter, in particular, has been temporarily disabled and their reactivation is scheduled for the end of the week. Finally, we point out that the developers have definitively rejected the idea of introducing a tax on death.
