Sea Of Thieves Patch Notes 2.1.1: New Cosmetics, Bug Fixes, and More

Sea of Thieves
Sea of Thieves AlphaCoders

Sea of Thieves developer, Rare, released a new update that added new cosmetics and fixed some known issues.

To purchase the cosmetics, players must go to any of the seven outposts across the map. The cosmetics added by the update are the Azure Ocean Crawler Set, Blackcoat Executive Admiral Set, Wailing Barnacle Instruments, and Black Market Archive add-ons. The Anchorball had an issue where the visual and audio effects would last even after the status had worn off. This issue was quite annoying as players would not be able to hear the next shots if fired again, but Patch 2.1.1 finally fixed the problem. Check out the other changes below.
