An upcoming Sea of Thieves update will reduce the overall install size of the game and give the devs more control over new patches.
If you were disappointed with Atlas and all the pirate adventures that it offered, why don’t you give Sea of Thieves a try? It’s a multiplayer action-adventure game where you get to sail the seven seas with a couple of friends or even random people, look for buried treasure, take on sea beasts, and even fight pirate skeletons! What more could you possibly ask for in a game about being a saltwater rogue?
Joe Neate, the executive producer of the game, made a post that detailed a larger-than-usual update that’s coming and changing how certain things work. This update is coming to Sea of Thieves on February 6th, 2019, and it revolves around the game’s overall install size.
So, the install size on all platforms is going down. On the Xbox One, it will go down from 35GB to 10GB, on Xbox One X, it will go down from 47GB to 25GB, and on the Windows 10 PC it will go down from 47GB to 27GB.
The way game updates and patches get generated also changes, and it will give the devs more control over content that’s coming in the future. This means that even thought upcoming patches might be bigger than those before, the overall install size won’t increase by a large margin.
Sea of Thieves is continuing to improve, and we look forward to more content and more pirate adventures!
