The "Sea of Thieves'" video card suggestions are also divided into "GPU" and "modern GPU" categories. 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.

Critics have already reported their first impressions of the game, but we'll have to wait until March for their final verdicts.

"If we can give cool stuff that people want to do, great, that's fine and it feels okay, because ultimately we do have to run a business right, but we spent a lot of time thinking about this and looking what player sentiment was around certain things and this just feels right", Neate added.

Microsoft and developer Rare have shared a wide range of possible specs for running Sea of Thieves on PC.

As you ascend up the ranks of faction rep with the game's various voyage traders, eventually you will be able to find a special hideout, available only to you and crew members you choose to bring there. The game studio detailed six different sets of specs, going from the "Cursed" 540p at 30FPS to the "Mythical" 4K at 60FPS. You would spawn on an island and have to figure it out yourself.

It sounds like in Sea of Thieves, it will just be the old fashioned kind of microtransactions where you pay a small fee just to look cool.

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

Regardless of the hardware on the machine, for "Sea of Thieves" to work, players must have Windows 10 and DirectX 11 installed. 100 per cent, if you want to progress in Sea of Thieves, you play the game. Then, within the next few months, Rare will begin to roll out the first expansions for the game. Also, you'll always know what you're buying, hence no loot boxes'.

On the one hand, the player-base on Sea of Thieves might be well over Rare expectations thanks to players not having to put money down to access the title on launch day (you can subscribe to Xbox Games Pass for £7.99 per month).

"There will be a chance of acquiring them other ways, but we're not going to go, "you can earn everything by playing", the way some people claim, even though you have to play for 60,000 hours or something", Neate says.
