Sea of Thieves has a new patch out. Among other things, it introduces a new cosmetic item, a figurehead that represents Rare’s most beloved characters, Banjo and Kazooie. The figurehead will only be available in July, and it will cost you 1998 gold to purchase.
There’s a new patch available for Sea of Thieves. It will update your game to version 1.1.5. The file sizes are 1.86 GB on the Xbox One and Xbox One X, and 1.50 GB on PC. As usual, the patch fixes up some issues and adds a new feature or two. On top of that, though, Rare has also added a limited-time ship cosmetic that celebrates their biggest hit, Banjo-Kazooie. It’s a figurehead for your ship, and you can see what it looks like in the image above. The Banjo-Kazooie figurehead will only be available during July, and it costs 1998 Gold. It seems like a random number, but 1998 was the year when the first Banjo-Kazooie game came out.
Apart from the new ship ornament, the patch also adds little new features. For example, if a cannonball hits your ship, it will now start rocking. Another feature, for PC only, is the ability to exit to desktop from the front end. Lastly, when you purchase a Player Title from a shop, it will then disappear from the shop’s inventory, which will reduce the clutter and make the menu easier to navigate.
On top of the new stuff, the patch also fixes some issues that players have been complaining about. For one, they’ve fixed multiple server and client crashes, and they’re working on further optimization. They’ve also fixed some of the problems with the Megalodon, such as several appearing in the same area, or the Megalodon music still playing on the Ferry.
