Being an online and multiplayer game, errors are not uncommon in Sea of Thieves, but it’s still one of the less bugged game. The Marblebeard error has existed with the game for quite some time, but the appearance was never as widespread as it is now after the release of the Season 3 update and A Pirate’s Tale. On the official website of the game there is a list of all Beard Errors, but that does not include the Marblebeard, which can be confusing. Stick with us through the post and we will tell you how to fix Sea of Thieves Marblebeard error.
How to Fix Sea of Thieves Marblebeard Error
Whenever you get an error code right after the launch of a new big update such as the A Pirate’s Tale and Season 3, the cause of the issue is the servers. As with Marblebeard Error, users fail to join session or connect to the server. The servers may be to blame, but that’s not to say the problem cannot be on the user end.
With every new update, a large number of players join the game and that can strain the servers. The concurrent players for Sea of Thieves a week from the update is still above 50K. With so many players on the game, it’s possible the servers could be running out of capacity or may be down. If the servers are down, you can check the status on Twitter. Also, if the Xbox Live Services are down that can lead to the same problem. So, ensure that the Xbox service is online. But, if the problem is caused due to a large number of players, it’s unlikely it would be reported on Twitter or you would see any issue with Xbox Service. The only fix in that case is to keep retrying or come back to the game after a little while. Trying to play the game when there would be fewer players should also work to fix Sea of Thieves Marblebeard error.
A problem with your internet or connection can also lead to the error. As such, perform the back troubleshooting to fix the error. Here is a checklist you can follow and solutions that have worked for other users in the past.
- Restart the device – Xbox or PC.
- Restart the network hardware such as modem/router.
- Ensure that your NAT type is set to ‘Open’. You can find it under Network settings of your Xbox.
- Hard reset the router/modem. It’s removing the power, allowing it to rest and power it back up.
- Hard reset the Xbox.
All of the above solutions have worked for players of the game to resolve Sea of Thieves Marblebeard Error. So, one or the other may work for you. Let us know in the comments if something worked or if you have a better solution.
