Rare confirmed that both editions will contain “complete feature parity” between them, allowing for console and computer players to share the same severs and game edition. The dev team is already running crossplay internally and will be doing so for all technical alpha tests going forward. Additionally, the upcoming Xbox One X will be included in Sea of Thieves’ testing and crossplay, which is great for those who want to play on a 4K TV.
“The first thing we asked ourselves when discussing the opportunity of cross-play in a shared world game is ‘Why would we segregate players in the first place?'” wrote the team at Rare. “It was hard to think of a really strong and valid answer to that. Were there technical reasons? Were there game balancing reasons? Or was it just because so few had asked this question before?”
Need more to fuel your hype? How about the fact that you can use your vomit as a weapon in the game. Or that Sea of Thieves will launch for both Xbox One and Windows 10 on the same day in “early 2018.” That should keep you going for a while!
