Sea of Thieves - A Treat for All Die-hard Pirate Fans Out There

Sea of Thieves - A Treat for All Die-hard Pirate Fans Out There

Sea of Thieves isn't the most photorealistic game to be released this year (except for the gorgeous water effects), but playing the game in 4K at 60 FPS will require a high-end Intel Core i7 or AMD Ryzen processor, 16GB of RAM and an Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 or AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 GPU. The final game will be significantly different in this regard, as IGN reports that players will be presented with eight procedurally-generated pirates out of the gate to choose from as the player's avatar.

Given this is a game based largely on water, we couldn't help but chastise ourselves for not considering sea sickness. These animals can be held by other players as well as the owner.

It looks as though players won't be able to customise their pirates in Sea of Thieves in the same way you would traditionally be able to create your character in other games.

For those who played in the Alpha or Beta, you might have seen these eerily empty islands that were full of ramparts and abandoned watchtowers, known as outposts on the map. I just really hope they don't go back on their word at some point. Everyone knows how finnicky PC players can get with their games, especially when it comes down to fine-tuning all the settings to exactly how they want it, which is why Rare is making sure to give those gamers everything they could possibly want in the options menu. Because you're a pirate legend, with access to those more complex quests, you will become a desired player. Then, within the next few months, Rare will begin to roll out the first expansions for the game.

Ted Timmins, the PC lead over at Lionhead Studios, announced that the upcoming March title Sea of Thieves would be optimized to run even on low-end machines. That update will introduce microtransactions to the game. You will always know what you're buying if you decide to spend real money in Sea of Thieves.

Sea of Thieves is often bandied about as an exclusive to Xbox One, but it's only a console exclusive; the seafaring pirate game is also coming to PC. Rare says that pets will be the highlight of the first major update, and that anyone can interact with a player's pet.

"We've thought long and hard about this and had lots of discussions about this internally", Neate said.
