Rare has rolled out the 1.0.5 update for Sea of Thieves, aimed mainly at bugs and balance tweaks.

The update weighs in at 1.36GB on Xbox One, and 1.25 on PC, and one of its focuses is on spawning. Specifically, the patch has tweaked issues affecting Bounty Quest Skeletons and Skeleton Fort, which would prevent players from spawning correctly.

Rare says players, “Players will no longer be stuck with a single weapon slot and players weapon choice will now also persist across sessions.”


This also means that your weapon choice persists across sessions and you won’t play the same shanty two times in a row.

The Kraken will no longer be able to spawn around rocks; your ship will no longer launch into the air randomly while sinking; and you won’t get stuck behind the bar in the Pirate Hideout.

There are quite a lot more small changes and tweaks. To view the full patch notes, check the official Sea of Thieves website for the full patch notes.
