New Sea of Thieves Video Talks Windows 10; Shows Game Running on 21:9 Ultra-Wide Screen

August 17, 2017

Today Rare released a new trailer of its upcoming shared world adventure game Sea of Thieves.

The video focuses on the Windows 10 version of the game, starring Senior Windows 10 Engineer Ian Norris and Windows 10 Design Lead Ted Timmins, who mentions that 4,000 new players have been invited to the latest technical alpha.

We get to see the game running on an ultra-wide 21:9 screen, while  Norris mentions that it “looks amazing” in 4K. We also catch a glimpse of the new push-to-talk feature, which was highly requested by the players from the first technical alpha.

While key binding is still not in the current build, Rare also implemented a way to play with the arrow keys instead of the classic WASD keys.


We also get to hear the most terrible pun ever: “Sailing the high PCs.” I swear I spilled my coffee, and I’m not joking.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
