Customization Variety

  • Ohh, Shiny - Visit the weapon shops at the many outposts to find their stocks of Grand Admiral, Castaway Bilge Rat, Ruffian Sea Dog and Imperial Sovereign weapons.
  • “Launch Crew” Eye of Reach - In celebration of being at sea for a month, we've added a special weapon to the store. This limited edition item will only be available for two weeks, so grab yours while you still can at a very reasonable price of 1 Gold.


  • Tutorial Invulnerability - Players are no longer invulnerable during parts of the Tutorial when first launching the game. This should resolve confusion around players seemingly being invulnerable at outposts.

  • Merchant Voyages - It is no longer possible to force Merchant voyages to request delivery to a specific outpost. Now you'll have to earn your cheddar.

Fixed Issues - PC Only

  • [PC Only] Half Vsync option was removed. The Frame Lock option should now be used instead.
    Resolved an issue which could cause players to fail to migrate and remain on low population servers.

Fixed Issues

  • Stow and Disengage can now be rebound to the same button on a controller

Known Issues

  • Players may experience details of their pirate (such as hair color / scars) looking different from their initial selection. - Working on a way for Customer Support team to reset your pirate to your original selection. If you have experienced this bug, please ensure you have logged a Support Ticket for this issue.
  • Players are experiencing delayed achievements and commendations from in-game actions. - Working on a way for Customer Support team to re-award these achievements and commendations back to players.
