Sea of Thieves Update 2.4.2 Bug Fixes and Gameplay Improvements

Season 5 of Sea of Thieves is almost coming to an end. To make the season livelier, the developers released Update 2.4.2 which makes some improvements to the game.

Gameplay Improvements

The developers have improved Shanty selection for players who like to play music while cruising the sea. Now, players can open the Shanty Radial directly by holding the secondary interact button. This change makes it easy for players to switch between shanties without opening the menu. That’s not the end of it, as the developers have made storms difficult to handle. Now, players have to put effort into controlling the ship during a storm and this makes the gameplay more interesting.

Performance Improvements

The developers have improved the server migration rate with this update. This should allow players to join different hosts without wasting much time. They also improved server stability to ensure that players don’t get removed from games as often.
