Many Sea of Thieves players experience game crashes. Some of them see an error informing them of what’s going on, but for many, the game simply ends in nothing.
If you are a part of it too, don’t worry! Here we have compiled a list of effective troubleshooting tips that you can use to fix this problem.
Update your device drivers
Sometimes Sea of Thieves crashes due to device driver issues. You need to update your drivers to fix the problems.
To update a driver, you can use Device Manager on your Windows system, or manually search for the correct driver on the hardware manufacturer’s website. In any case, you need to make sure that the driver you received is correct and up to date.
Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) is often incompatible with some games, including Sea of Thieves, which can eventually crash. In this case, you need to disable IPv6 for your current Internet connection. You should:
Step 1. Press Win + I to open Windows settings. Then click Network & Internet.
Step 2. In the right pane, select Network and Sharing Center.
Step 3. In the Network and Sharing Center, click Change adapter settings. In the pop-up window, right-click on the current network and select Properties.
Step 4: Click the Networking tab and uncheck the Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP / IPv6) checkbox.
Step 5: Click OK to save your changes and restart your computer.
After that, you can ensure that you can play Sea of Thieves without any glitches.
Add the game to the antivirus software exclusion list
Some antivirus applications may be preventing your game from connecting to the Internet. This is another possible reason for Sea of Thieves crashing on PC.
Thus, you should try adding the game to the antivirus exclusion list to fix this problem. If the problem persists, restart your computer and try again. If that doesn’t work, you may need to temporarily disable or uninstall your antivirus.
