UPDATE: Sea of Thieves has been taken offline for server maintenance on Xbox consoles and PC.
The news was announced by Rare on Twitter, although patch notes are still MIA. Express Online will update this story once patch notes are available.
“And just like that, the Sea of Thieves servers are offline for essential maintenance.
“The shipwrights need a short while for their tinkering, but we’ll let you know as soon as it’s safe to set sail. Please note that there will be an update to download before you do so. Cheers!”
ORIGINAL: Sea of Thieves developer Rare has released a brand new update for the pirate adventure game.
The new Sea of Thieves update will be available to download on Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One from 10am GMT in the UK.
Unfortunately, however, the new update will be joined by a period of server downtime, which also begins at 10am.
Rare typically takes the game offline for around three hours, so you can expect things to return to normal at 1pm GMT.
The news was announced by Rare on Twitter: “Attention pirates! We’ll be performing some essential maintenance on the Sea of Thieves servers tomorrow, November 11th, from around 10am GMT.
“Once we’re back online, and before you set sail again, you’ll need to download a small update – please plan your Voyages accordingly.”
Rare followed its original tweet with an update on the server status of Sea of Thieves.
“This is your one hour warning – the Sea of Thieves servers will be taken offline for maintenance at approximately 10am GMT. Check your map, mark the nearest Outpost and cash those chests!”
Express Online will keep this story updated with the latest patch notes once the update goes live.
The update launches just days after Rare announced a major milestone for Sea of Thieves.
According to the latest reports, Sea of Thieves has amassed 25 million players since launching back in 2018.
“If we were a nation, that would make us around the 56th most populous in the world,” Rare confirms.
“Not only did we roll out some special in-game goodies, including the chance for one lucky corsair to win 25 million in-game gold, there was a special celebratory message from Creative Director Mike Chapman. Onwards and upwards to the next milestone!”
In case you’re new to the world of Xbox, Sea of Thieves is a massively multiplayer pirate adventure.
“Sea of Thieves offers the essential pirate experience, from sailing and fighting to exploring and looting – everything you need to live the pirate life and become a legend in your own right.
“With no set roles, you have complete freedom to approach the world, and other players, however you choose.
“Whether you’re voyaging as a group or sailing solo, you’re bound to encounter other crews in this shared world adventure – but will they be friends or foes, and how will you respond?”
The game is available for free as part of Xbox Games Pass, so it’s worth checking out if you’re a member.
