Nobody is safe.
Rare’s long-awaited nautical adventure Sea of Thieves couldn’t steer clear of what can be seen as a sort of plague on gaming. Day 1 patches are just a smidge better than a Day 1 DLC. Except in this case, Sea of Thieves’ Day 1 patch is a cosmetic item, and a wonderfully cheeky way to both play to the game’s theme and poke fun at the industry.

SoT’s Da One Patch is a literal eyepatch with a red 1 sewn onto it. Apparently it was an idea of the game’s Reddit community member Jefabell, and Rare has played along, once again displaying a keen sense of humour and connection to the community. Here’s to hoping they won’t distance themselves too much in the future.
