The voyages obtained here were described to me as being an approximation to Sea of Thieves' "raid" content, granting the most exclusive outfits and rewards for completing the most hard missions. Players will not be able to customize the appearance and traits of their pirate, a choice the developer deemed necessary for the implementation of some mechanics. 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. 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. Sea of Thieves is now set to come out for PC and Xbox One on March 27th, 2018.

With this being an Xbox Play Anywhere title that means you will have the option of playing on both Xbox One and PC and the game is cross-platform between both of the platforms.

The closed beta notoriously threw players into the world with virtually no instruction of where to go or what to do.

If you bump things up a notch it's even pretty easy to get the game running at 1080p and 30 FPS.

Don't let the cartoonish looks fool you because the game is anything but family friendly.

"It's entirely optional, but if you had a monkey, for example, you'll be able to hold it like you can other things in the game, but then I'll also be able to hold it, then drop it overboard, because that's amusing", Neate explained. Because you're a pirate legend, with access to those more complex quests, you will become a desired player. One of the first updates will introduce microtransactions.

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

However, Sea of Thieves will not immediately start asking for money, and will never feature randomized loot box drops. Rare says that pets will be the highlight of the first major update, and that anyone can interact with a player's pet. "We want to make sure we're enriching the experience for everyone, so new merchants, trading posts, and trading companies", Neate says.
