You can probably run Sea of Thieves on your crummy gaming laptop

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

Not that I think that this is a bad thing, I definitely hail the decision to keep loot boxes out of games.

"For example - and this isn't a feature yet - we could have a fountain of youth in the game, where you could go to it and by interacting with it, it would make your character younger", Duncan explained.

When news broke that the highly anticipated shared-world adventure Sea of Thieves would be including microtransactions in one of their earlier post-launch updates, the subsequent eye roll was immediate. Rare says that pets will be the highlight of the first major update, and that anyone can interact with a player's pet.

This means that it doesn't matter if you have a high-end PC or low-specs (potato) one, you'll still be able to enjoy those ravaging sea battles or explore the game's huge map.


In a later interview with Joe Neate - executive producer on the game - we followed up this statement and asked if he could clarify the comments, asking if the studio wanted Sea of Thieves to sit alongside brands like Forza, Halo and Gears of War. The people who love our game, have been playing it for ages, and are happy to spend money on things that they love and the hobby that they enjoy - what feels right for our game?

In other words, there will not be any loot boxes. The game will, however, feature a premium shop, but you'll always know what you're buying. You'll be able to choose one of the eight afterwards. The two lone requirements across the board are that the game will need Windows 10 and DirectX 11 to run, but otherwise the game will be supported by a variety of different hardware sets.

"I fundamentally want to fire animals out of cannons because it will be very 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. Oh, we want it on Steam!' It's because those communities are passionate and have social spaces within those communities. We want to add stuff in that's completely optional and just adds to the fun. The mission statement is that microtransaction items have "emotional value, not mechanical value".
