Like a frightened turtle. Early next month, the Sea of Thieves install size is set to be drastically reduced with a new streamlined installation that will also allow for easier updating and optimisation on the part of developer Rare. So then, what sort of shrinkage are we talking about? Significant.

With the base Xbox One install size dropping from 35GB to 10GB, the Xbox One X version 47GB to 25GB, and the Windows 10 PC version 47GB to 27GB. It's a pretty impressive bit of optimisation, that Rare states will also mean that future updates won't increase the overall installation size in the same way that previous updates have.

The Shrinkage Update is due to rollout on February 6, and will force a full re-install for the game. But after that it'll be, err, smooth sailing.
