Rare Studio Head Talks Sea Of Thieves And Live Services, Microtransactions

  • 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.

"For me personally, the platform is just a way in which for you to get the game", he says.

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. "You'll know what you're getting, so you will be buying something specific". What's going to bring value to our players?

Speaking with PC Gamer, the game's design director, Mike Chapman, did reveal however that microtransactions will "probably" be added to Sea of Thieves at some point down the line, though they won't be there for launch day.

In a visit to Rare last week, Daily Star Online had the opportunity to see Rare in action ahead of the launch of the game. "It'll come back. It'll be fine!"

At the other end, South Africa's stand-in skipper Aiden Markram conceded India were superior than the hosts and deserved the win. One can't ignore Hardik Pandya's contribution as his all-round skill sets came into good effect.


"No loot boxes. No loot crates", Neate confirmed. "I think that's the way we'll do it", he said.

"So even if you were the only person who had bought a pet, but you had it on board, your crew would be able to enjoy the benefits of a monkey".

Players work together in teams to seek out treasure in vast open spaces filled with forts to explore, and mythical sea creatures to combat, The Guardian says. Again, it's completely optional.

Lastly, what's your thoughts on Sea of Thieves and its service model?

Sea of Thieves releases on March 20, 2018 and can be pre-ordered from the Microsoft Store for $59.99. Of course if you have a beast of a rig running at 4k/60, we've got you covered with the best looking "Great Water", and everything in between! That goes for our digital business. "That's a hard and fast principal to us". "I joined [Rare] two years ago, and our ambition since then has been to deliver the PC game that PC players expect. It just feels like the right thing for us to do to help us as we have a team working on updating and growing Sea of Thieves, which costs money, right?"
