Sea of Thieves today receives a big update and it introduces new stuff. This update, Cursed Sails, will introduce new skeleton ships, possibilities of alliances and a new player ship for three players which is called the Brigantine.
New Brigantine is an outcome of the player feedback that Rare has received so far. It was not originally planned but as many players requested something smaller, they eventually introduced this new ship. New player alliances are also introduced with this update. It will allow players to split the loot with the crew. Also, the new skeleton ship will probably offer a new way to improve naval fights and ship loots.
But this update also comes with some bad news as the performance issues forced developers to disable temporarily the skeleton forts and the kraken.
The update will be available pretty soon as the servers are not available now.
So, enjoy the new update fellas and stay tuned for more news!
