Sea of Thieves is 'never' going to have loot crates

  • Sea of Thieves

"Loot boxes" were probably the first words that popped into your head, but Sea of Thieves will never have loot boxes. Lead designer Mike Chapman tells IGN that the game takes place prior to the Golden Age of Piracy in a mysterious location called the Sea of Thieves. At all, ' said Chapman. By essentially controlling the looks of players' characters, the developer can create game mechanics that change your a character's appearance.

This means that it doesn't matter if you have a high-end PC or low-specs (potato) one, you'll still be able to enjoy those ravaging sea battles or explore the game's huge map.

Speaking to US Gamer, Rare has said it will introduce in-game purchases to Sea of Thieves months after launch, but they will focus primarily on the 'social side of things'.

The premium shop won't be live at the game's March launch, either, a decision that makes sense in the context of the ongoing controversy around loot boxes.

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.

I'm trying to keep business out of Mexico. "He's of Mexican heritage, and he's very proud of it, as I am of where I come from". She again reemphasized that President Trump has confidence in Kelly, as well as Hope Hicks.

The randomly-generated pirates come in all shapes and sizes, but if you're not pleased with the selection you can pick eight more. How it'll fare once it actually arrives next month is anyone's guess, but in the meantime I'm enjoying the trickle of information every so often that helps us figure out what the final version will be like.

"Ultimately, as long as you've got Windows 10, you've got access to Sea of Thieves". There is also a limited-edition wireless controller for £65, and a bundle with a Sea of Thieves-themed 2TB external hard drive with the exclusive gamepad for £150. And, apparently, the first things you'll be able to buy will be pets!

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.

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

"But what we're saying as a Rare developer is, we're going to turn on crossplay".
