A Huge Update Wave In The Sea Of Thieves

Rare Software, in response to the problems following the game’s release, is prepare a big update for Sea of Thieves. With issues such a connection difficulty and receiving game rewards, its no surprise that the game will have a huge re-downloading. See the full re-downloading size here!


The full re-downloading size for Sea of Thieves is going to put users in the 19.53 GB range.
