Ready for epic sea battles, rowdy and lewd swashbucklers and plundering that sunken sea booty? Then brace yourselves, because we have a great piece of news coming all the way from Ted Timmins, the PC design lead of Sea of Thieves game. According to Timmins, the game is optimized as to accommodate both high-end rigs and potato PCs.
What the Heck Is Sea of Thieves?
As you might have guessed it, Sea of Thieves is something involving pirates and sea battles. 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.
Don’t let the cartoonish looks fool you because the game is anything but family friendly. 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.
For those of you who have incessantly accessed the ‘Can I Run It?’, Ted Timmins commented that the PC team was burning the midnight oil wondering how low the game can be rendered. The answer is that the game can be played without any issues at a 540p quality.
This means that it doesn’t matter if you have a high-end PC or low-specs (potato) one, you’ll still be able to enjoy those ravaging sea battles or explore the game’s immense map. As far as the specs are concerned, to be able to run the game in 540p, 30 FPS, your PC will need to meet the following specs:
- CPU: Intel Iris 540/Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200.
- RAM: at least 4GB.
- VRAM: 1GB.
- OS: Windows 10, build 1607 (Anniversary Edition).
- DirectX: v.11.
- GPU: integrated.
- HDD: at least 60GB of free space.
