Sea of Thieves Will Have Microtransactions 3 Months After Launch

Sea of Thieves

Rare and Microsoft are aiming for Sea of Thieves to be one of the Xbox's top franchises, the developer has revealed. These pets work like other items in the game: they're physical objects that can be held not just by the owner, but by other players. No, what's a Sea of Thieves way of doing it?

So it gives us great pleasure to announce that after all of the above, and more than a year of working with our partners at AMD, Intel and NVIDIA, it's time to smash a bottle of rum against our PC specifications so that you can see how your rig will fare.

Unlike the majority of modern first-person games, which are often set in war-torn cities or grater-filled battlefields, Sea of Thieves is a pirate-themed open-world adventure game with a cartoon twist. As a new IP, it's really important to us that players know the value of the game.

According to Rare, the game will not feature any loot boxes or any form of microtransactions that will affect player progression.

However, the minister said Oxfam did "absolutely the wrong thing" by not reporting the detail of the incidents to the government.

The randomly-generated pirates come in all shapes and sizes, but if you're not pleased with the selection you can pick eight more. "That said, he affirmed that "...there will never be loot crates in Sea of Thieves". I desperately want us to be able to fire other stuff out of cannons, including monkeys and other animals, just because it's fun, right? And, apparently, the first things you'll be able to buy will be pets! Also, he said that there will be zero microtransactions in Sea of Thieves on launch.

A full post about the new specs is available on the Sea of Thieves website. Again, it's completely optional. "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!" As for the premium shop, yes, you'll be able to spend real money in Sea of Thieves.

"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.
