Soon, PC gamers will not need to undergo the Windows 10 retailer for Sea of Thieves. Rare is releasing the Steam version of its multiplayer-centric crusing journey sport on June 3, 2020, for $39.99.
Unfortunately (and type of understandably), for those who already personal a Windows 10 copy of Sea of Thieves, you will not get a free “entitlement” for the Steam version. They’re suitable when it comes to cross-play – Xbox One and Windows 10 customers can play with Steam homeowners – however this model is a brand new buy. And talking of, you’ll nonetheless want an Xbox Live account, though Xbox Live Gold is not required.
Rare has a number of different tidbits, like the truth that progress carries over to Steam, tucked in an FAQ.
Don’t get me incorrect, I like Sea of Thieves. I admire the power to hop in a ship, sail round as a cohesive crew, and get into mischief figuring out full effectively that different gamers are on the market doing the identical they usually might help or harm me at any second. But the sport has longer legs than I might’ve thought.
I anticipated folks to present this sport a cursory word-of-mouth-driven likelihood and transfer on after they received bored of the (initially sparse) core treasure-hunting loop. I did not count on Sea of Thieves‘ momentum to choose up a lot that it will grow to be an enormous hit for not solely Rare, as a studio, but additionally Microsoft extra usually. For reference, the sport handed 10 million players in January 2020.
Rare has been persistent and in step with supporting Sea of Thieves, and it is paid off.
