The Sea of Thieves update which was supposed to land today has been delayed to next week.

Rare announced today an issue arose in the PC version which needed to be fixed before the update to Sea of Thieves could be deployed.

The patch adds invite-only, private parties which lock out randos, shareable items such as food and cannonballs, and the Castaway chests to be found by higher level pirates has been decreased. Name tags will also no longer show when players are swimming underwater.

Last week’s Sea of Thieves patch 1.0.6, added cosmetics to the shop in the form of expanded sets. Some of the items planned to be included were missing, and those will be added in when the delayed patch hits next week.

Pricing will be fixed on some of the items, and those who already bought the items will see a refund. Rare is also removing eight items from the shops which looked too similar.

Like all subsequent patches, next week’s 1.0.7 update will include the usual performance improvements and bug fixes.

Finally, next week we can expect a trailer to drop for the first content update, The Hungering Deep. Along with a look at the DLC, a release date will be provided.

There are five additional content updates planned for release this year. Players can expect new ships, additional enemies, mechanics, rewards, and more.
