 Sea of Thieves  got its first update of April, and it brings fixes, a new language option, the beginning of a special celebration for Pirate Legends, new accessibility features, and more.

Microsoft and Rare announced that the game has reached the milestone of one million Pirate Legends, so there’s a special event from tomorrow, April 8th through the 11th at 10AM BST. The Gold & Glory Weekend will give Legends double gold and treasure turn-in rep, as well as the Silvered Legendary Eyepatch for logging in during the weekend. On April 10th, there are bonuses for all players to gold, rep, and Renown. All players can also take advantage of the temporarily open claim for Athena’s Fortune Fireworks.

The new update fixes a number of issues with Sea Forts and other gameplay. Improvements were made to Harpoon aim assist. So when you launch a harpoon at loot, you'll be more likely to get the treasure instead of the sand. The game also added new Thai language support throughout. 

There are several new accessibility features that enhance the "Let games read to me" option. The new fish name narration will, while you're fishing, narrate the name of the fish when it surfaces. Emote narration control can also now be disabled from the game settings menu to reduce audio overload.

While there may still be possible ping spikes and other server issues, they've also added improved service stability in this week's update, especially in the reduction of scenarios where crews could be removed from a session. 

There are a number of fixes to issues and bugs in the gameplay, UI, and features. These cover everything from players sliding through walls into the sea to error messages now appearing in the language chosen in settings. 

You can read the full update notes over at Sea of Thieves to see all of the fixes made in this new update.
