Sea of Thieves Update Sea Forts Fixes and Known Issues

Sea of Thieves Update 2.5.0
Sea of Thieves Update 2.5.0 Rare

Sea of Thieves recently received an update that fixes the bugs present from the start of Season 6. So free up your hard drive because the patch can eat up to 6 GB, depending on the platform.

Sea Forts

The previous update brought six explorable Sea Forts. There was a small issue where players were required to locate the Prison Cell Key every time they explored a fort. This issue has been fixed, and players will just have to complete the Forts of the Forgotten adventure to access the cell.

Known Issues

With this new patch, developers highlighted some issues that players may encounter. One of these is the random ping spikes, leading to rubberbanding or client stutters. The dev team is working to fix this. Other known issues are noted below.
