Today Rare released a brand new video of its upcoming Shared World Adventure Game Sea of Thieves.

The video stars Executive Producer Joe Neate and Windows 10 Design Lead Ted Timmins, as they talk about cross-play between Xbox One and Windows 10.

The team actually dropped into Xbox One technical alpha testing while actually playing on Windows 10.

Funnily, the PC version doesn’t have the usual “minimum,” “medium,” “high,” and “ultra” graphics settings, but it comes with “cursed,” “common”, “rare,” “mythical,” and “legendary,” because it felt more fitting to the game.

You can check out the video below, and if you want to see more, you can also enjoy a batch of new screenshots, a video in which the developers talk more about the Windows 10 version, another featuring the improvements made to gunplay, one more  with some really impressive 4K gameplayone on riddle questsone about shipwrecks, one about storms the gameplay trailer showcased at E3, and a second large batch of screenshots and artwork. Of course, you should also read our recent hands-on preview.

Sea of Thieves will release in early 2018 for Xbox One, Xbox One X and PC. It was initially supposed to release in 2017, but Rare and Microsoft decided to leave it in the oven a little longer.
