Sea of Thieves Won't Have a Character Creator

Rare is going overboard with performance recommendations for its upcoming nautical adventure, Sea of Thieves, including a promise that the Windows PC version of the game is created to run even on underpowered rigs.

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.

In the meantime, here's everything you need to know about Rare's next big title. What we will say is there will never be loot crates in Sea of Thieves'. If I put it down, it'll come back.

PC players will have the option of changing the field of view, unlocking the framerate, rebinding keybinds, change video settings, resolution and graphics counter.

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.

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

This was partly due to Musk offering his personal 2008 Roadster instead of using a hunk of metal as a dummy payload. He tweeted that the addition of A Shortfall Of Gravitas would also support busier flight schedules for Falcon 9.

Regardless of the hardware on the machine, for "Sea of Thieves" to work, players must have Windows 10 and DirectX 11 installed.

Given the emphasis on truly co-operative play in Sea of Thieves, we also took the opportunity to ask if local co-op had been considered for the game, alongside online co-op.

"The game is perfectly playable at 540p", explained Timmins, which means that PCs with Intel Integrated GPUs (Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200 or Intel Iris 540) and 4G of RAM should have a pretty good experience.

Eurogamer picked up on this detail at a recent preview event, and added that you'll be able to view the character performing different animations and in different poses, just to give you a better idea of how it's going to look in-game. Rare says that pets will be the highlight of the first major update, and that anyone can interact with a player's pet.

Pre-orders are open now on Amazon, with the base game costing £42 for the Xbox One, and £54 for PC. These animals can be held by other players as well as the owner. "Part of that is, we'll look at things that make sense for Sea of Thieves in terms of the long-term digital business".
