No Loot Boxes To Appear In Sea Of Thieves, 30% Of Closed Beta Players On PC, Plus PC Requirements Revealed

Loot boxes. Those two words don't tend to be spoken with delight. Luckily for you, you won't need to utter them at all while playing Sea Of Thieves because they aren't going to make an appearance at all.

Design director Mike Chapman confirmed that Rare isn't interested in putting gambling in the game, which also means that there will be no loot boxes in sight.

"What I will confirm is there are no microtransactions for launch. At all.", Chapman said. "Based on us continuing to build this game, we'll probably consider some form of microtransaction. What we will say is there will never be loot boxes in Sea Of Thieves", which is reassuring news.

These microtransactions, if and when they're implemented, will be limited to cosmetic items, though Rare is aiming to adopt a "new take" on the whole idea, so long as they suit the game's world and tone, and don't divide its playerbase.

"There'll never be a form of gambling in Sea Of Thieves, of any description" Chapman continues. He also states that pay to win mechanics are "completely out of the question""We'll try and do new and interesting things with it. So it won't be just like 'oh, they've slapped microtransactions in the game, how interesting'. No, what's a Sea Of Thieves way of doing it? What's going to bring value to our players? I think that's the way we'll do it".

Whilst you're here, here's some more Sea Of Thieves news (I'll get to the PC specs shortly). Of its 332,052 total closed beta players, 32.4% of them played on PC, Rare has revealed, which is quite a healthy number seeing as it's merely a closed beta.

"We're not out of the woods yet - there's still features I want to get in for launch" said Ted Timmins, PC design lead. "I joined [Rare] two years ago, and our ambition since then has been to deliver the PC game that PC players expect. And that's hard. PC player expectations are higher than your average human, because we are better than the average human. Once you set that goal, you're shooting for the moon".

Timmins added that the PC version of the game isn't an outsourced port, it's an internally developed project, made and launched alongside its console counterpart. He said he's proud of his team and he'd "love to one day read a forum post that says 'Rare made a PC game like all people should make PC games'".

Timmins then discussed console-to-PC crossplay and launching on the Windows Store. "For me personally, the platform is just a way in which for you to get the game. 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! Oh, we want it on Steam!' It's because those communities are passionate and have social spaces between those communities".

"But what we're saying as a Rare developer is, we're going to turn on crossplay. So, we actually have this story in the forum, where two mates who have been mates for ten years have never played a game together before because one was an Xbox player and one was a PC player. But in the technical alpha, they played a game together for the first time. And you look at that and think 'that's really cool'. Yes it might not have been the community you're used to, but you're building new ones and making new friends within that community".

"Ultimately, as long as you've got Windows 10, you've got access to Sea Of Thieves. And again, that's another powerful statement to us. The advantage for us is we build one game that goes to many devices, that's all wrapped up unto crossplay, Xbox Play Anywhere, game pass, to give players more choice".

Now, onto the specs you'll need to get that ship a'floatin'.
