Game Improvements

GDK Integration

  • Sea of Thieves now operates on the latest Xbox GDK (Game Development Kit). Players on PC are encouraged to update to the latest graphics drivers to ensure the best compatibility and performance.

  • Sea of Thieves now supports DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 where supported by the hardware. While the title will now auto-detect and optimise the experience, players can also choose within the game settings.

  • General client performance improvements should be seen throughout the experience, with PC players seeing the largest improvements.

  • While players on console and the Microsoft Store will experience a large initial download, regular game updates moving forwards will now be considerably smaller.

  • The Microsoft Store experience on PC is now improved, with the client signalling the need for an update and the ability for players to set the install location when using the Xbox app.

  • Players on PC using the Windows Store may be required to take further steps to initiate the download. Please head to the official Sea of Thieves Support site if any assistance is needed.


Improved Athena’s Fortune Voyages

  • The Voyage of Legends and Ashen Voyage of Legends have now been refreshed, providing a shorter session experience and consistently delivering rewards for the Athena’s Fortune Trading Company.

Improved Raid Voyage Rewards

  • While diving to a Raid Voyage will continue to reward crews with a concentrated number of high-value items, making the spoils easier to carry than numerous lower-value items, the total quantity and value of items awarded and their visual impact have now been slightly increased following player feedback.

  • Crews completing Raid Voyages for the Athena’s Fortune Trading Company will now find that only Athena’s Fortune treasure is awarded.

Skull of Siren Song Guild Reputation

  • Guild Reputation will now be earned by taking part in the Skull of Siren Song Voyage when this is active on the server. 

  • Crews can earn a modest amount of Guild Reputation when selling an empty Chest of Siren Song, and a significant boost to Guild Reputation when handing in the Skull of Siren Song to Briggsy. The existing gold and Renown earned from these rewards remains unchanged.

Emissary Voyage Improvements

  • Players starting an Athena’s Fortune Emissary Voyage in The Devil’s Roar will now be further rewarded with an Ashen Chest of Legends upon completion.

Ashen Winds Skull Value
