Sea of Thieves launched its collaborative effort with Disney called A Pirate’s Life this week. And while the game should update automatically to include new content, technical difficulties could prevent that from happening.
If you’ve loaded up Sea of Thieves just to realize that your game didn’t update the way it was supposed to automatically, there’s still a way for you to force the game to update.
The first way that you can try to force Sea of Thieves to update is by going to the Microsoft Store and searching for the game. Once you find the game, select the Sea of Thieves product page and the game should start to update, according to the official Sea of Thieves support website.
If that doesn’t work, Sea of Thieves’ support suggests that you press your Windows key, type “wsreset” and try again.
If you’re unlucky enough that your client still refuses to update, the next step would be to put in a support request with the Sea of Thieves customer support team.
