"If we can give cool stuff that people want to do, great, that's fine and it feels okay, because ultimately we do have to run a business right, but we spent a lot of time thinking about this and looking what player sentiment was around certain things and this just feels right", Neate added.

So, we actually have this as a 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.

"Sea of Thieves is unlike anything I've ever played". "When we bring in our first major update, that's when we want to add the option for players to spend money, if they want". So anything we add in this area won't affect power, won't affect progression.

One of the new things players on either side of the border war agree on is that the rivalry brings out the best with both teams. In the absence of the NHL, which chose not to send players to Pyeongchang, the US men's national team is comprised of outcasts.

Earlier this month a Sea of Thieves datamine unearthed word of a premium shop. "It'll either be on a shoulder, like a monkey, or like a cat on the ship", said Neate. He specified, saying that "it'll kind of benefit everyone socially and emotionally. You'll know what you're getting, so you will be buying something specific".

The randomly-generated pirates come in all shapes and sizes, but if you're not pleased with the selection you can pick eight more. The impressive styles that will come with Legend-level customization should alter the dynamics of your interactions with other players. He also explained that the use of microtransaction is simply a business move to support ongoing development. "My goal and everyone else's goal here is to have as many people as possible working on this, and just keep giving people reasons to return, reasons to have fun". But you could also hold it, then you could run off and drop it over the side [of the ship] because that's amusing.

Rare's Sea of Thieves is just a few weeks away from release, and it promises to be the ultimate experience when it comes to all things pirating. Probably one of the most anticipated pirate titles since Man O' War: Corsair - Warhammer Naval Battles, Sea of Thieves is a naval buff's wet dream, so to speak, allowing the players to wage wars between them and plunder settlements. Are you curious to see what other items will be for sale when microtransactions start up? 'This, ' we thought 'has VR potential.' According to the game's lead PC designer, Ted Timmins, however, that's not the case.
