Sea Of Thieves Release Notes – September 7, 2023


  1. Pirates entering the water or setting foot on islands should no longer find themselves set upon by emergent threats so quickly. Lingering in the water and sauntering around islands will still result in an ambush sooner or later, but not at the same frequency as before.
  2. ‘The Quest for Guybrush’: After returning from the Sea of the Damned, pirates who drop treasure overboard will no longer find the items returned to their ship.

Visual and Audio:

  1. The Flaming Jackal Compass now points pirates in the correct direction!

Known Issues: Localisation:

  1. The Mysterious Note for Legends Week has inconsistent localization and will temporarily be presented in English only to most players.
