There’s an all-new Sea of Thieves update available to download, but for certain platforms, it’s as much as 102 GB in size. It’s jam-packed with improvements, changes, and a transition to the latest Xbox Game Development Kit (GDK) which allows for DX11 and DX12 support on PC, but it’s a whopping download under any circumstances.

In the patch notes released alongside the update, Rare noted that future updates will be ‘considerably smaller’, but let’s be honest – they couldn’t have gotten much bigger.

Thar She Blows

In the latest update, released by Rare today across Xbox and PC platforms, Sea of thieves is getting a bunch of changes injected into it. This includes amendments and upgrades to certain voyages, rewards, reputation mechanics, and water physics. There’s a bunch of new items being added to the Pirate Emporium, fresh cosmetics to buy and equip, and hundreds of fixes and tweaks being applied across the board.

Here’s the install size for the latest Sea of Thieves update on all platforms:

  • Xbox Series X: 88.36 GB
  • Xbox Series S: 90.15 GB
  • Xbox One X: 88.36 GB
  • Xbox One: 90.15 GB
  • Microsoft Store: 102 GB

Recently, Sea of Thieves was in the news following revelations that Microsoft has plans to port its exclusive games to other platforms, namely PlayStation. There were widespread discussions around which games they could be, but the most reliable reports suggest that Sea of Thieves will be a leading title being sent over to the Blue Team in the future.
