Rare released an update for the Sea of Thieves cooperative pirate adventure, changing one of the key mechanics. The naval warfare industry now preferred to sink enemy ships rather than board them.
Previously, players would capture an enemy ship and take out all the valuables, as they would go underwater with the ship as a result of the sinking. After the refresh, the supplies are floated, allowing the pirates to take the contents of the holds.
However, some Sea of Thieves fans did not like the new feature. They said they would continue to plunder and kill defenseless enemies, leaving their ships without resources.
The game recently launched its eighth season, which added new locations, factions, and characters.
