Sea of Thieves has a new feature that should help players who fear the dark depths of the ocean. Earlier this month, Rare added an auto float feature that doesn’t let the player sink below the surface.
“Should you leap off a high ledge or a cannonball forces you out of the crow’s nest and into the deep blue, this option will automatically see you bob to the surface,” the studio wrote in a post on its official site. Players can activate the feature by going to the settings menu and turning “Automatically Float in Water” on.
This option could help players with thalassophobia–which includes the fear of being in deep bodies of water, fear of the vast emptiness of the sea, of sea waves, sea creatures, and fear of distance from land–as well as other similar phobias.
