Hello everyone! We’re super excited to be at gamescom, showing off the magic of cross-play for the first time in Sea of Thieves. On the show floor, you can play together on Windows 10 PCs and Xbox One S, so if you’re at the show, be sure to swing by and experience it at the Xbox booth!
Sea of Thieves as an experience is perfectly suited for cross-play, and we love how it brings our players together, regardless of device.
An important part of cross-play is obviously our Windows 10 PC version, and ensuring we deliver the experience our players expect. At gamescom we’re showing our support for 21:9 displays and the game running in 4K resolution at 60 frames per second.
In December, we launched our Insider Program, and since then we’ve been working with our community, growing the game and adding features with their feedback. And during gamescom, our Technical Alpha players will also be able to experience the magic of cross-play at home.
Ted Timmins, our PC Design Lead, shared more details with our community about exactly why cross-play is so special, along with our plans for Windows 10 PC – including the fact that it will ship simultaneously on Windows 10 PCs with the console version in early 2018. I’d encourage everyone to have a read to learn more about why we’re so excited about the opportunity we have with Sea of Thieves.
