Rare Says Sea Of Thieves Will Run Well Even On Crappy PCs

Sea of Thieves Confirmed to Run on Potato Rigs Rare Studio Head Talks Sea Of Thieves And Live Services, Microtransactions

Sea of Thieves rolled out its closed beta last month, which brought out the best and worst of the PC Gamer team. In fact, Rare also mentioned that the first inclusions in the premium shop include virtual pets that you can place around your ship, and other players will be able to interact with them as well. So, we actually have this as a story in the forum, where two mates who have been mates for ten years have never played a game together before because one was an Xbox player and one was a PC player.

In the meantime, here's everything you need to know about Rare's next big title.

"Sea of Thieves is unlike anything I've ever played". However, going towards the enthusiast end, anyone looking to enjoy the game on maximum graphics settings on a 4K display at 60fps, will require an i7 4790 or a Ryzen 5 1600, along with a GTX 1080ti or a RX Vega 64.

Mike Chapman, the design director, was pretty categorical while talking with PC Gamer.

"Our focus at launch [is] on a great game experience".

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.

Jacob Zuma recalled by South Africa's ruling party
While Zuma, 75, has survived a number of no confidence votes before, his supporters now see him as a political liability. Meanwhile, the African National Congress (ANC) party has given Zuma until the end of the day to resign.

Players work together in teams to seek out treasure in vast open spaces filled with forts to explore, and mythical sea creatures to combat, The Guardian says.

'What I will confirm is there are no microtransactions for launch.

"No loot boxes. No loot crates", Neate confirmed. We want to add stuff in that's completely optional and just adds to the fun. "Part of that is, we'll look at things that make sense for Sea of Thieves in terms of the long-term digital business".

And while Sea of Thieves is still a bigger version of the sandbox we explored last month, there will be a story to give the world a greater sense of goal. "That's a hard and fast principal to us".

"We obviously want to keep growing the game as a service", Duncan said. "So if I have a monkey, I can hold it, because it's a monkey and we can hold most things in our game". But based on everything we learned today, it sounds like Rare's pirate sandbox could have a long life ahead of it post-launch.
