Here's Whats In The First Sea Of Thieves Update [UPDATE] Death Cost No Longer Coming Soon

Rare has already launched its first update for Sea of Thieves. The update offers changes including highlighting a favorite pirate that you've created to how you'll pay for your death. You can find the full patch notes the Sea of Thieves site, but here are some of the highlights:
  • Favorite Pirate – Sea of Thieves doesn't feature a full suite of character customization options, but rather generates randomly selected pirates for you to choose from. Want to save a potential favorite for later and try again? Now you can!
  • Achievements – Previously, there was a delay when achievements would unlock in Sea of Thieves. That issue has been resolved.
  • Snakes! – Along with pigs and chickens, snakes have now been added to the island. Their poisonous spit can be used to ward off any scallywags who dare try to steal your treasure.
  • Coming soon: Death Cost – A trip to Davey Jones' Locker is going to start costing you gold. The way that you meet your demise will affect how much gold you will have to pay (so dying from a Kraken will most likely cost less than if you were starring at a map and walked off a cliff). Rare does not intend for this gold fee to be applied to any PVP related deaths.

Sea of Thieves is available now for Xbox One and PC.

UPDATE 3/26/18 -  Joe Neate, the executive producer on Sea of Thieves has confirmed on Twitter that the Death cost will no longer b coming to the game.

"Letting everyone know we've heard the feedback and the proposed 'Death Cost' in #SeaOfThieves is, well, dead. We messed up with the messaging around this, and it's now gone. Thanks for the honest feedback & discussion on this."
