Sea of Thieves PC System Requirements and Recommended Specs Revealed

Sea of Thieves PC System Requirements and Recommended Specs Revealed

Sea of Thieves recently wrapped up its closed beta period of Xbox One and PC and now the developers shared the PC recommendations and requirements with us. "But of course, there are communities built within that platform, and I think that's where people get passionate about, 'oh, we want it on Origin!"

Rare has previously said it was aiming to get its necessary specs as low as possible, while still offering an "ultra" experience for high-end PCs, and the range of the specs bears that out. Just what these microtransactions actually might entail beyond the basic pet system that's already confirmed is anyone's guess (the only descriptor is something that it'll "bring value to players" and remain cosmetic), but at least it won't involve gambling for what you want. "You'll know what you're getting, so you will be buying something specific".

After spending a few hours playing the Sea of Thieves beta last month (and a dozen or so hours watching others play it), the Xbox exclusive shot up to the top of my list of most anticipated games. "At all", design director Mike Chapman tells PC Gamer. You can customize your boat as a merchant ship or a pirate ship with black sails.

"Ultimately, as long as you've got Windows 10, you've got access to Sea of Thieves".

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

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. I just really hope they don't go back on their word at some point.

Unlike the majority of modern first-person games, which are often set in war-torn cities or grater-filled battlefields, Sea of Thieves is a pirate-themed open-world adventure game with a cartoon twist.

In additional Sea of Thieves news, this comes on the heels of an announcement that Rare does not plan to ever include loot boxes in their games. These animals can be held by other players as well as the owner.

Pre-orders are open now on Amazon, with the base game costing £42 for the Xbox One, and £54 for PC. To be able to run Sea of Thieves you'll need an Iris Pro Graphics 6200 or Intel Iris 540 processor, Windows ten anniversary, 4GB RAM, 45GB of free space, and 1GB of video RAM.
