If are not good at Sea of Thieves and notice that you are being resurrected quite a lot then sadly I have some bad news for you, Rare will soon be implementing a gold-fee charge for players to re-spawn.




Rare has addressed this new mechanic in their recent release notes which can be found here. The new change will usher in the Captain of the Ferry of the Damned asking players for a "small gold fee" once they perish.


Rare discusses that the "rates are dependent on the cause of death, so the more avoidable the death, the less patience the Captain will have when we enable this feature!" Many players are expressing concern about this update, saying that spawn camping could happen or even that this could be a incentive for players to purchase more gold through future microtransactions.


Luckily Rare has clarified that players will not have to worry about being charged when dying in PvP, due to the fact that this fee will not be applied to PvP related deaths. "Please note, we never intended to charge players for PvP related deaths, as we understand the negative impact this would have on player experience."
