‘Tis the season to be jolly! As we approach the end of an incredible year for Sea of Thieves, the Pirate Lord has decided to reward the sheer volume of piracy displayed with a gift for every pirate who sails the seas during December, in an initiative he’s calling Gilded Gifts.
Wondering what he has in store for you? Visit Duke at any Outpost tavern this month and purchase a Gilded Voyage for the fine sum of 0 Doubloons. This special voyage type with its high-value rewards will add some real holiday joy to your inventory. But choose carefully: you can only buy one!
The pirates at the Outposts have also gotten into the celebratory spirit and have put out a sprinkling of festive decorations. A perfect backdrop for those end-of-year crew photos.
- Loading Times – Loading times into the game have been reduced, so pirates now load in to the front end more quickly than before. The pirate selection carousel also loads in more quickly.
- Commendation Progress – Improved UI layout of Commendation details for Bilge Rat Adventures.
- Bone Crusher Cannons – Modified the Bone Crusher Cannons following feedback to improve visibility when aiming.
- Banana Key Binding – The key binding for quick cycling to your bananas has been reset. If you’ve assigned or customised the button/key that quick cycles to bananas, please reassign this to restore it.
- Commendation Audio – New music and SFX when receiving Commendations.
- Fog Audio – Music and SFX for fog are now triggered earlier.
