Sea of Thieves PC System Requirements and Recommended Specs Revealed

4
As the first of Microsoft’s big exclusives for the year, Sea of Thieves is not only bringing the pirate’s life to Xbox One but also to PC, and now those on PC can prepare for their high seas voyage with the game’s official system requirements.

Microsoft and Rare have revealed the PC system requirements and recommended specs for their upcoming Sea of Thieves ahead of its release in March, and overall PC players will find that the game will cater to a large variety of systems, depending on what level of performance you are looking to get out of the game. The two lone requirements across the board are that the game will need Windows 10 and DirectX 11 to run, but otherwise the game will be supported by a variety of different hardware sets.

The specs in question range from as low as 540p/30fps to as high as 4K/60fps, making the game a very flexible option for players that might have older or lower end machines, to players looking to max out the settings as possible. Microsoft and Rare provided six different spec buildouts you can find below, which should give you an idea of where your configuration might fall when running the game.

Sea of Thieves will release for Xbox One and PC on March 20th, 2018 – for a closer look at the specifications for the PC version of the game, you can check out the required and recommended specs below.

Didn't get the chance to play the Sea of Thieves BETA but I did get to see some game play on Twitch. Seems like an interesting concept nonetheless my computer should definitely be able to run this at fairly high settings and I cannot wait for the release.

Dragon Can't run this on my Mac. :/ I cannot wait to get a gaming PC to open myself up to the world of PC gaming. I will definitely be getting the game on console though.


Why would you ever play a game on a MAC in the first place.....


Just saw the 3 notable titles of the graphics selection (Bin Liner, Bayliner, Cruise Liner)
