It's just free sails. As long as you log in to play between the 15th and 22nd (I think) they will show in your ship livery inventory after those dates. (i.e the ship modification chest at the shipwright on each Outpost).

Oh ok. I just turned on the game but didn't actually play. Just tried to find it in the menus that pop up at the start. I've never actually played the game beyond getting a character in the beginning.

You should tackle the "Maiden Voyage" from the Main Menu or join us on Thursday for some on the job training! :)

Maybe. My son got interested in it as I was having a look. There's obviously no SP but is there a way you can go it alone or you always have to team up with at least one person? That's how it seemed to appear when my son tried to give it a go and then because of that lost interest.

You can Solo Sloop (which is how I mostly play), so from the menus choose Sloop, then "Closed Crew", this means randoms won't join you but friends can. It _is_harder Solo as you have to do everything yourself, move/drop/raise sails, steer, fire cannons, fix holes, bail, put out fires, repel boarders etc. But it can be very rewarding.

The Maiden Voyage is geared for Solo play and takes you through the ropes on your own. If you have a windows 10 PC that will run it you can play cross platform with him too without buying the game again.

My four year old used to like watching me play, although he'd constantly pester me to let him fire me out the cannon as he thought that was funny as hell.

Cheers mate. We have two Xboxes with both having it so will give that a go.

I reckon we should try the new setting where we don't play with those PC Mastarace types.

(the one that the PC players are getting salty about as it "ruins the player base" i.e takes away their easy kills)

That sounds f#!% fantastic. Where can I read the salty Master Race's comments? I wish to savour them.

Pretty much any SoT post anywhere out there!

Update Notes

Here's the details:

Adventure Cross Play – Xbox players now have an option in the main settings menu (before jumping into a game session) to enable an Xbox controller preference for Adventure matchmaking. This will search for Xbox players using controllers and attempt to match you with players who have also selected this option. If not enough players can be found with this preference, you will be moved to a mixed-platform game so that you can still get into the action. If you set this preference to ‘Off’, you will be matched with all players including those on PC and any Xbox players using a mouse and keyboard.


So it also excludes Xbox players using keyboard/mouse - wonder how it will treat my chatpad, that's technically a keyboard but isn't used as such.

Yes but does it stop players from searching games while their controller is attached and then swapping to keyboard/mouse once locked in?

Probably not, although that does give me a way round it should it decide my chatpad is a keyboard. ;)
