In an interview past year, Rare stated that it has plans to implement graphics settings that should allow even the frailest of PCs to run its upcoming pirate adventure game, Sea of Thieves.

You can collect weapons and clothing as you progress through the game, and according to Engadget, Rare may introduce microtransactions to allow you to purchase items using real-world money.

Luckily, Rare's push from multiplayer pirate experience is set to transition into a games as a service in one of the most elegant ways we've seen, with a focus on Rare learning from the mistakes of other developers while stressing it will be keeping its ear to the ground on player feedback. Also, you'll always know what you're buying, hence no loot boxes'. "[At launch], there's a lore book, featuring adventures of early players in the game's production, a separate art book, a comic, a Limited Edition controller, a branded SeaGate HDD, a tankard and more".

The company has "done a great job" developing the fundaments of the game, the site adds. "It'll come back. It'll be fine!" But Sea of Thieves "will have to consistently grow" in order to "keep the player base's attention".

"We're not out of the woods yet-there's still features I want to get in for launch", says PC design lead Ted Timmins.

"What I will confirm is there are no microtransactions for launch".

"Going onto Google Trends and looking at Sea of Thieves and watching the spikes throughout the development of the game and seeing where it's at now".

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.

And while Sea of Thieves is still a bigger version of the sandbox we explored last month, there will be a story to give the world a greater sense of objective. "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!"

"We've thought long and hard about this and had lots of discussions about this internally", Neate said. That goes for our digital business.
