Sea of Thieves PC specs revealed

Rare has unveiled the full list of PC requirements for Sea of Thieves.

With Sea of Thieves releasing on both PC, and Xbox One on the same day, we were bound to get the PC specs at any moment.

Today, developer Rare has sent out six sets of specs, targeting everything from the low-end at 720p 30fps, to the more extravagant 4k 60fps. There’s also a set for 540p at 30fps, for some reason.

Rare not only provided frame-rate and resolution targets for each set, but also outlined which graphics preset players can expect from each one. That said, the developer neglected to mention if the game’s frame-rate will be unlocked past 60fps.

Overall, the specs for 1080p 60fps, and 4k 30fps are relatively modest. It’s only when you target 4k 60fps that you start needing an i7 and more expensive GPUs. Take a look at all six below, courtesy of Gamespot.
