Cursed be the Day One patch. Truly it's the bane of all gamers who just want to unwrap their new game and dive right in. But maybe you should give Sea of Thieves' Day One patch a good once-over before deciding to string it up for shark bait. It's quite literally … a Day One patch. And it'll come in very handy when a rival pirate inevitably pokes your eye out.
Yes, Sea of Thieves' Day One patch is of the eye-covering variety, and you can buy it in the in-game clothing store. Although not quite as well known today, Rare made a reputation out of making fun of games and pop culture. Its sense of humor can be seen in many of its older titles, including the likes of Banjo Kazooie and Conker's Bad Fur Day (which made fun out of many popular films of the time).
Sea of Thieves is shaping up to be a return to form for the studio, which has mostly been focused on Kinect titles and Xbox system features in more recent years. Sea of Thieves is available now on Xbox One, Xbox One X, and Windows 10 PCs, and is also part of Xbox Game Pass. Game Pass gives subscribers a selection of over 100 games, and Sea of Thieves is the first big Microsoft Studios title to launch at retail and on Game Pass simultaneously.
With the Day One Patch now you truly are a pirate, even though you bought Rare's new multiplayer seafaring adventure legitimately. Right? Right? Well, we're not here to judge ye sea dogs. We're here to help you be the best pirate you can be with our Sea of Thieves guide and tips on how to get started in Sea of Thieves.
