This week Rare plans to focus on accessibility in Sea of Thieves. In a new developer diary, Executive Producer Joe Neate detailed some of the upcoming changes with this week's patch. We've listed them below for your convenience.

  • Players can now discard unwanted voyages.
  • Colorblind support is coming which changes how the "X" appears on the map.
  • Players will be able to change weapon aim sensitivity on Xbox One and PC.
  • Rare is bringing back the tester program soon so that errors don't roll out to users like last week.
  • The studio is investigating cheating and will take action soon. There is a zero tolerance policy to cheating so offenders will be banned.
  • "The Hungering Deep" expansion has time-limited rewards and other cosmetic items.
  • Rare will release a new video this week on how it plans to approach campaigns and weekly events.

Sea of Thieves is an exploration-based pirate game which launched on March 20, 2018. Rare is known for many famous franchises including Banjo-Kazooie, Conker, and GoldenEye. However, in recent years, the team focused on developing Kinect games for Xbox One and Xbox 360. This was a curious decision, so when Phil Spencer became Head of Xbox in 2014, he assigned Rare a new project. Sea of Thieves is a shift for the developer and a concept the team hasn't tackled before.

The game is currently available at retailers for $59.99 or as part of the monthly $9.99 Xbox Game Pass subscription. The game features Xbox One X enhancements and Xbox Play Anywhere support.
