There's no virtual reality on the horizon for Sea of Thieves

Sea of Thieves

Players also have the ability to use ultra-wide monitors and have a dedicated FPS counter.

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

Sea of Thieves will feature microtransactions, like most games released these days.

Rare has announced that Sea of Thieves will not feature any loot boxes at all.

"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. The game studio detailed six different sets of specs, going from the "Cursed" 540p at 30FPS to the "Mythical" 4K at 60FPS.

Red Raiders No. 3 seed in NCAA bracket preview
If those seeds held, Xavier would get preference for the Midwest Region in Omaha because it is the higher seed. Numerous top seeds have suffered recent losses, but those were balanced out by key wins early in the season.

Be wary though, once you pick, that's it, you become locked in, and that character becomes tied to your gamer tag on Xbox Live. However, they are still planning to add microtransactions to the game about three months after release.

Once you become a Legend, you'll gain access to a secret pirate hideout and the endgame legendary voyages, which will be the game's most hard content at launch. Everyone knows how finnicky PC players can get with their games, especially when it comes down to fine-tuning all the settings to exactly how they want it, which is why Rare is making sure to give those gamers everything they could possibly want in the options menu.

A few months after launch, Rare is planning to drop its first major update, which will bring in a new system called Ship Captaincy. That update will introduce microtransactions to the game. So if I've got a cat, I can pick up it up and look at it, or you can pick it up and run off with it.

With enhanced online mechanics and tons of stuff to do, Sea of Thieves is believed to be one of the interesting titles ever to have landed on consoles since Pirates of the Caribbean, the 2003 box-hit developed by Bethesda, Ubisoft, Disney Interactive, 1C Company, and TDK.

Regardless of the hardware on the machine, for "Sea of Thieves" to work, players must have Windows 10 and DirectX 11 installed. But based on everything we learned today, it sounds like Rare's pirate sandbox could have a long life ahead of it post-launch.
