Sea Of Thieves PC Requirements And Recommended Specs Announced

Sea of Thieves will launch without microtransactions, but will add them in its first major content update, planned for around three months after release - but they'll be for cosmetic rewards only, and won't feature loot boxes. According to PC Gamer, design director Mike Chapman confirmed that there will be no microtransactions at all at launch.

Thankfully, if the Sea of Thieves PC specs are any indication, the game may be better optimized for the platform than expected. At all, ' said Chapman. The game is described as being an open-world, first-person, massive multiplayer online RPG, where players are free to explore, find treasure, amass huge battlefleets, and, of course, conduct raids. However, Sea of Thieves will not immediately start asking for money, and will never feature randomized loot box drops. "What we will say is there will never be loot crates in Sea of Thieves". Pay-to-win items are also supposedly out.

Sea of Thieves launches for Windows 10 and Xbox One on March 20.

In so many games, you create characters using a raft of customisation options, tweaking sliders to pick from a variety of faces, body types and skin colours, among many other things. But you could also hold it, then you could run off and drop it over the side [of the ship] because that's amusing.

Travelling in a crew means there's a good chance other players will have your back when you're exploring for treasure as well, the website says.

Our rendering team set themselves the goal early on of "how low can we go", sometimes also referred to fondly as "getting the game running on a potato", which is why we want to deliver a great version of the game even for those with computers below our official minimum-spec. Each person gets their own role, such as steering the vessel and repairing it if it gets attacked by other players. "That's a hard and fast principal to us", concludes Duncan. "The advantage for us is we build one game that goes to many devices, that's all wrapped up into crossplay, Xbox Play Anywhere, game pass, to give players more choice".

No, Sea of Thieves won't be diving into that territory.
