Ted Timmins, PC Design Lead at Rare, wrote this about the PC settings range:

Our rendering team set themselves the goal early on of “how low can we go”, sometimes also referred to fondly as “getting the game running on a potato”, which is why we want to deliver a great version of the game even for those with computers below our official minimum spec. The game is perfectly playable at 540p, and one of the advantages of Xbox Play Anywhere is that if you own an Xbox One AND a low-spec laptop you can still take full advantage of it, and we absolutely encourage it! Of course if you have a beast of a rig running at 4k/60, we’ve got you covered with the best looking #GreatWater, and everything in between!

Rare has certainly taken an all-encompassing approach, with support for older hardware at lower graphical settings as well as textures, framerates and resolutions that will take advantage of high-end gaming rigs. This kind of welcoming approach to all sorts of gamers is refreshing to see.

If you’re still not sold on Sea of Thieves, I recommend reading our impressions of the closed beta right here. Remember, Sea of Thieves launches March 20th, 2018 for Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.
