  • Crews can no longer bypass the purchase restrictions and collect multiple Resource or Commodity Crates at once.

  • Crews with an active Merchant Cargo Run Voyage or Message in a Bottle Cargo Run are now able to collect purchased Resource and Commodity Crates from Merchant Alliance representatives.

Pirate Emporium

  • Purchasing the Dark Warsmith Essential Ship Bundle should now grant the player the correct sails.

  • The Dark Warsmith Ship Bundle artwork now shows the correct ship items unlocked upon purchasing the bundle.

Performance and Stability

Known Issues

Resource and Commodity Crate Collection Issues

  • Crews with an active Merchant Alliance Voyage or Message in a Bottle requiring the collection of Animal Crates from a Merchant Alliance representative are currently unable to collect Resource and Commodity Crates after purchase.

Ranged and Melee Weapon Hit Detection

  • In areas of intense action, players may find themselves firing shots or landing strikes that do not cause damage to their targets. While improvements continue to be delivered during our content updates, this remains a key priority for the team.
