Sea of Thieves producer announces 'Death Cost' idea is dead

Sea of Thieves producer announces 'Death Cost' idea is dead

First, a little background for those who are unfamiliar with the way death works in Sea of Thieves. The game was developed by Rare and published by Microsoft. A number of players actually used that forum post to present a bunch of interesting ideas - such as penalties for losing your ship - so Rare has a few different directions it could go from here.

In other Sea of Thieves news, these poor pirates lost 130 chests, 15 relics, 30 skulls, 8 teas, 5 spices, 2 sugars, 3 stronghold chests / skulls after nine hours playing due to the Almond Beard error. Rare has addressed the problem saying they are investigating it through Twitter. Design, build, and grow the city of your dreams, delivering important public services, establishing strategic civic policies, and challenging yourself to grow from a simple town to a bustling metropolitan hub. Really unpopular, threads about it were dominating the front page of the Sea of Thieves subreddit at one point.

The upcoming, controversial Sea of Thieves "death tax" update has been, well, killed.

Note that just because it's a big download doesn't mean this is a content update. Naturally for a game all about getting gold, this proved to be extremely unpopular within the Sea of Thieves community. According to the developers, this is a full game update as opposed to just a patch, meaning that gamers will have to re-download the complete game. When you bite the bullet and find yourself on the ghostly ship of the afterlife, Rare wanted players to feel the sting in their pockets. The next client update will also be "much smaller" in size, says Rare, reiterating in the release notes that the priority here was to get the update out as soon as possible, regardless of size.
