Sea of Thieves update makes adjustments to Trade Routes
Rare has delivered a new update for Sea of Thieves that makes several changes to Trade Routes and Commodity Crates.
According to the patch notes, crates in surplus now sell for a lower price than regular crates, each Outpost now has a wider range of surplus stock, and the cost of purchasing crates and the reward when sold has been reduced. In addition to these changes, crews are now limited to purchasing one Resource Crate and one Commodity Crate every five in-game days.
Today’s update also adds Shark Fin Camp, Sailor’s Knot Stronghold, Lost Gold Fort, and Kraken Watchtower as potential areas for Forts of Fortune to spawn. This new type of Fort was introduced in Season 2 and sees players battling against waves of skeletons to get high-level treasures.

Sea of Thieves is available now on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.
