Rare, the developer of Sea of Thieves, released an update that brings in Season One. This update also includes some major changes, cool improvements, and new cosmetics, which can be found in the outpost.

For Xbox Series X, users can now enjoy the new performance mode that supports up to 120Hz at 1080p resolution. But you may have to turn off HDR mode as some TVs don’t support it. An issue where players have trouble connecting to servers while the game is suspended has been resolved. This should allow you to use other applications without being interrupted by the queue.
