Rare Studio Head Talks Sea Of Thieves And Live Services, Microtransactions
"Our focus at launch [is] on a great game experience". The ship changes with every new game session. "That's a hard and fast principal to us", concludes Duncan. Thanks to a couple of new articles, we've got a better idea of just how long we'll be setting sail - and how we'll be able to do in style. It's odd to see Microsoft take an about-face on this when they jammed microtransactions into most of their Xbox One launch games, but here we are in 2018, and they're forced to evolve and implement a ton of new good policies. The game is described as being an open-world, first-person, massive multiplayer online RPG, where players are free to explore, find treasure, amass huge battlefleets, and, of course, conduct raids. "And I genuinely have the utmost confidence in our ability to do that". The goal of the game is to become a Pirate Legend in status, as you build up reputation and prove yourself worthy to your fellow land-lubbers.
"We're not out of the woods yet-there's still features I want to get in for launch", says PC design lead Ted Timmins.
"The buzz and the excitement we're seeing around the studio, around the game now - it's very reassuring". "There will be a chance to acquire some of this stuff in the game, by rewards and chance, but if you want to guarantee a specific pet then you have to buy". 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.
For Rare as a business, as home to some 200 staff who are all charged with making Sea of Thieves a successful, multi-year "game as a service", a popular premium shop is crucial.

Sea of Thieves is just over a month away from release, and although developer Rare will be helping its players simulate the life of a pirate, it's keen on keeping its own shady practices to a minimum.
