Developer Rare has today announced the release of a new update to the Sea of Thieves multiplayer pirate adventure game which is now available to play on both Xbox and PC systems and offers cross-platform play. Enabling both PC and Xbox gamers to enjoy the same servers.
The latest update 1.0.7 for Xbox One and Windows 10 installations of Sea of Thieves and the highly anticipated ‘Open and Closed Crews’ feature as well as plenty more enhancements, tweaks, fixes and features for players to enjoy. Rare explains more.
This Seat is Taken – Players now have two crew type options available to them, Open and Closed Crews.
Open Crews: This option works in the same way you’re used to. For the Galleon, an open crew will match four players together while also replacing players who leave during a game. For the Sloop, two players will be matched together, with a leaving player being replaced when possible.
Closed Crews: This option allows a single player to begin a game on either a Galleon or a Sloop, allowing friends to join in when they’re available. You can now play with any configuration of players up to the limit on each ship, which is 4 players on the Galleon and 2 players on the Sloop, as well as preventing non-friends from being able to join you. This option replaces the 3 player Galleon and Solo Sloop options in the Main Menu.
Coming Soon: Additional functionality coming soon for Open and Closed Crews includes the ability to dynamically switch between Open and Closed while in the game, in addition to being able to make a session fully private by preventing friends joining.
