Sea of Thieves Will Add Microtransactions Around 3 Months After Release

Rare Releases System Requirements for Sea of Thieves

Rare has confirmed that Sea of Thieves will not sell loot boxes through its premium shop.

Mike Chapman, the design director, was pretty categorical while talking with PC Gamer.

The assertion doesn't carry over into microtransactions, sadly.

In a statement, HTC said Chang had chose to leave to take a different career path. As for the smartphone market of HTC, it has not completely ended its business.

The new game takes the format of a cartoon-style pirate adventure, with players teaming up with friends and strangers to look for treasure and battle giant sea creatures.

"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. One of the reasons for this is that Sea of Thieves will be part of Xbox Play Anywhere, Microsoft's program that allows console gamers to play that title on either their Xbox or their PC.

In a later interview with Joe Neate - executive producer on the game - we followed up this statement and asked if he could clarify the comments, asking if the studio wanted Sea of Thieves to sit alongside brands like Forza, Halo and Gears of War. 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. In addition to that, Rare has released the system requirements people will need to run their game and, odds are, even the worse of machines can probably run it. Also, you'll always know what you're buying, hence no loot boxes'. But Sea of Thieves "is an impressive return to form" for the studio.

Officials sent notice that all activities at Gangneung's Olympic Park were suspended "to ensure the safety of all personnel". Shiffrin would also become the first American skier to win multiple gold medals in a single Alpine event.

Sea of Thieves releases on March 20th. Instead, you will be able to purchase a pet. While the plans for how this will happen aren't yet final, he suggests you could find items in the game world, or receive it as a reward after high-level quests.

"It'll come back. It'll be fine!"

Thankfully, if the Sea of Thieves PC specs are any indication, the game may be better optimized for the platform than expected. That goes for our digital business. "That's a hard and fast principal to us", concludes Duncan.

Heavy snow to blanket upper Midwest
Gino Izzi, meteorologist with the National Weather Service forecast office in Romeoville, said it will be a standard winter storm. That will be followed by another storm tomorrow afternoon through evening, and then a third going into Saturday morning.

"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.
