The New Year has arrived, and with it comes a new Sea of Thieves 1.4.2 update that clears away the remaining decorations of the holiday season and also brings a handful of much-needed updates and fixes. Below we've put together a quick rundown of everything the 877 mb update brings to Xbox One and Windows gamers including improvements to loading times. The update removes some of the holiday decorations that remained from the Haul-a-Day event but there's still plenty of goodies to take advantage of. In the meantime, if you need any help with the update or have questions for the devs, be sure to post those on the Official Sea of Thieves forum, here.
