Rare’s pirate adventure title Sea of Thieves is still coming in hot with updates that introduce new accessibility features to the game, allowing you to continue to enjoy being a pirate legend. The latest update introduces two new features that some players may enjoy.
The accessibility update comes along with the brand new, titled update, Fate of the Damned which introduces a range of spooky voyages, gear, spooky decorations, and even skeleton pets. How cute. The update is free and suits the Halloween spooky vibes perfectly. There are also some improvements to how players can keep track of events and special rewards. Cosmetics from the Pirate Emporium will however require spending real money.
One of the features is Emote Narration, explained by James Thomas, a coder at Rare for Sea of Thieves who says that, for this feature, if you can hear your crew’s text communications, you’ll also be able to hear what emotes are being performed by them. Emotes are accessed through the Emote radial wheel in-game, with a bunch of different emotes available to purchase in the in-game store.
There’s also an Auto Move feature now which will allow players to continually move forward with the single press of a key. Players will continue to move forward until they hit a wall. This should work nicely with the previous update that introduced a feature to ensure players automatically float and also support for single-stick controls.
Sea of Thieves is available now on PC and Xbox One.
