Rare and Microsoft are deploying Sea of Thieves update 1.1.5 which introduces the Bear and Bird figurehead to celebrate Banjo-Kazooie’s 20th Anniversary.

In addition to the above, the new patch also offers various fixes, including fixes for multiple server and client crash fixes. “To mark 20 Years of Banjo-Kazooie, players will now be able to purchase a majestic Bear & Bird Figurehead for a very fitting price of 1998 gold!”, Rare writes on the official Sea of Thieves blog. “This figurehead is only available during the month of July, so make sure you join in the celebration and purchase it while you can!”
