In a new blog post, Sea of Thieves announced the introduction of Black Powder Stashes in their latest update 2.0.5. This is the first in a series of planned monthly content updates.
Along with Black Powder Stashes, Sea of Thieves will see, “a host of game balance, quality of life and accessibility improvements, making this a big update for you to sink your teeth (or ships) into.”
Game balancing improvements include improved resource crates, megalodon encounter balancing, adjustments to sloop mast damage, and hit frequency of the Devil’s Roar volcanoes. Accessibility improvements include support for “tap to interact,” support for mouse hover in settings, and radial menu support for keyboard bindings.
Included in the patch are also a host of fixes for Tall Tales - Shores of Gold, general environment fixes, and arena fixes.
