A new adventure begins today, Forts of the Forgotten sea of thieves, and thus a continuation of the plot and expansion of the world. The latest update also brings rotating world events, stability improvements, and performance fixes.
With the team announcing that Adventures 2022 will help bridge the Sea of Thieves narrative, we now have a chance to see where that is headed. This new adventure follows directly on the last one and runs from March 24th to April 7th.
During the final Shrouded Islands adventure, a plan came to light that attempted to weaken the barrier between the Sea of Thieves and the Sea of the Damned. This new chapter will tie straight into the narrative of the first, continuing to draw you into the intricacies of an urgent matter that will also involve a rescue mission. When you complete it, a new title and a cosmetic reward await.
The update also fixes a rotation of world events across the seas, making them consistently available. On a related note, the ship cloud in the sky that meant you were about to make contact with a skeleton fleet is back in the world event rotation. Other issues addressed in this update include server performance improvements following the introduction of Sea Forts in Season 6 due to the usage and demand created by the addition of these new Sea Forts. Improvements have also been made to the client to better support performance on lower spec hardware in general and continue to allow a wider range of gamers to access the game.
However, they do point out that there are still issues with server performance and ping spikes, so of course all server attention is an ongoing process.
