Sea of Thieves' Microtransactions Won't Affect Progress, No Loot Boxes Either

Sea of Thieves - Sea of Thieves for Windows 10 - Let's Talk About Specs

While I'm sure some players will lament the lack of character sliders and express concern that you can't play Sea of thieves as "yourself" - or as close to yourself as possible, there was an impressive variety to the pirates on show, although some looked, frankly, ridiculous (old faces on young bodies). As the game has been developed by a Microsoft studio, it will not be available on Sony's PlayStation 4.

Later in the interview, Neate proclaimed that Rare will support Sea of Thieves for as long as people want to play it. Also, he said that there will be zero microtransactions in Sea of Thieves on launch.

As you might have guessed it, Sea of Thieves is something involving pirates and sea battles. According to the team Skeleton Forts will be quite a hard fight for players but will be rewarding, so rewarding that it apparently all won't fit in the one ship. The highest end provides the necessary specs to run the game at 4K and 60 FPS: an i7 4790 or Ryzen 5 1600, 16 GB of RAM, a GTX 1080 TI or RX Vega 64, and an SSD.

KitGuru Says: It seems as though the folks over at Rare have their heads screwed on despite recent controversies.

Regardless of the hardware on the machine, for "Sea of Thieves" to work, players must have Windows 10 and DirectX 11 installed.


The randomly-generated pirates come in all shapes and sizes, but if you're not pleased with the selection you can pick eight more. "It'll either be on a shoulder, like a monkey, or like a cat on the ship", explains Neate. Each person gets their own role, such as steering the vessel and repairing it if it gets attacked by other players. You would spawn on an island and have to figure it out yourself.

"It's bad enough when you're not in a storm", laughed Timmins, "but when you go into a storm you're just like "oh god!' There's actually a lot of people at Rare who have the Vives and Oculuses of the world and they're like 'no chance".

On the one hand, the player-base on Sea of Thieves might be well over Rare expectations thanks to players not having to put money down to access the title on launch day (you can subscribe to Xbox Games Pass for £7.99 per month).

Critics are expected to deliver their final verdicts nearer to the game's release in March.
