It’s no secret that Rare has paid close attention to community response to Sea of Thieves, its upcoming Xbox One and Windows PC pirate adventure. To wit: One fan on Reddit recently asked for a “day one patch” — a pirate eyepatch with the numeral 1 slapped on it — and Rare quickly obliged.
“Dear Rare, don’t miss the opportunity to release a ‘Day One Patch’ eye-patch with the games Day One Patch,” user Jefabell wrote in a post on the Sea of Thieves subreddit in late February.
“I think this is a must,” user ZilorZilhaust responded. “Just a black eye patch with the #1 on it.”
Well, that’s exactly what’s in the game now.
As noted in the item description: “A message in a bottle from Jolly Jefabell washed ashore. Eye patch makers read it and said ‘aye.’” Credit where credit’s due.
Here’s what it looks like in-game, courtesy of redditor Darkwizard98, who said the eyepatch costs just one coin:
Sea of Thieves is coming to Xbox One and Windows PC on Tuesday, March 20.
