A big patch has landed from the high seas as Sea of Thieves huge Emporium update has come ashore, er me hearties. Right, I’ll stop that now.

There is loads to get through and we’ll sift through the bilge (sorry, it seems I can’t) and pick out a few highlights, but you can read all the information on patch 2.4.1 right here.

SoT patch notes

Outpost Cosmetics

Seafoam Castaway Bilge Rat Set

  • The Outpost clothing shops now stock the Seafoam Castaway Bilge Rat clothing set, available to purchase for gold.

Figurehead of the Silent Barnacle

  • Long thought lost, the Figurehead of the Silent Barnacle has finally reached the Outpost shipwrights, locked behind the Hoarder of Barnacled Gold Commendation.

Gameplay Improvements

Island Enemy Encounters

  • While exploring islands, crews who encounter and vanquish individual Ocean Crawlers, Phantoms or skeletons from a group of enemies should find that they call in reinforcements less frequently before the group is defeated.
  • After vanquishing a group of Ocean Crawlers, Phantoms or skeletons, crews should now enjoy a much longer respite period before encountering them again on the same island.

New Player Onboarding Improvements

  • When new players arrive on the Sea of Thieves, after listening to the Mysterious Stranger in the tavern, they will now be directed to the signposts which will help guide them around the Outpost.
  • New players will now receive a notification after selling items to the Gold Hoarders, Order of Souls or Merchant Alliance for the first time, informing them that they can purchase Voyages from these Trading Companies that will lead to additional loot.
  • New players purchasing their first cosmetic items will be informed how to use the various cosmetic chests to access these, including clothing, weapons, equipment and ship parts.


Spatial Audio Support

  • Players on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and supported PCs can now enable Spatial Audio and experience full immersive surround and elevation audio for both headphones, and Atmos-capable Home Theatre systems.

Bug fixes

There are waaaay too many squashed bugs to mention here so we have cherry-picked a few of the juicy ones.

Digging up and quickly burying booby-trapped treasure should no longer cause any enemies to retreat back into the sand.

Crews are no longer able to retrieve a buried treasure map from Quest Boards while in an Arena contest.

Buried treasure maps of The Sunken Grove should now be accurate and no longer show some areas of land as water. 

Players sitting or sleeping can no longer avoid idle timers and should now be removed from the game after a period of inactivity.

When a Galleon’s lower and middle decks fill with water, rats will now be seen using the stairs to evacuate to the top deck more clearly.

There are so many more, so check out the full patch notes to see if the issue you have been facing has been sorted out in this issue.
