We are aware that some players have received an unscheduled update to the game – this is in the process of being reverted. Players currently trying to sail with friends who have the unscheduled update will receive a Lightbeigebeard error.

Selected Sea of Thieves servers will shut down at 8pm UTC. Most players will be unaffected, but those required to leave the server will see in-game shutdown messaging, and some may need to download a small update before beginning a new session.
