Sea of Thieves features a lot of ways to customize your character, but it doesn't end there. Aside from adding a flashy hat or eyepatch, Rare confirmed that players will be able to customize their ships. This feature will be available upon release, and gamers will be able to own their own ships eventually.
Rare's Ted Timmins said that it is really important for players to know what a sail on the horizon means. Ship customization shows a sense of stature in the world.
Sea of Thieves is an upcoming exploration-based pirate game from Rare. The developer is known for many famous franchises including Banjo-Kazooie, Conker, and GoldenEye. However, in recent years, the team focused on developing Kinect games for Xbox One and Xbox 360. This was a curious decision so when Phil Spencer became Head of Xbox in 2014, he assigned Rare a new project. Sea of Thieves is a shift for the developer and a concept the team hasn't tackled before.
The game has been delayed a few times but we finally have a concrete release date. As announced at The Game Awards 2017, Sea of Thieves is now scheduled to launch on March 20, 2018, across Xbox One and Windows 10. The game will also support Xbox Play Anywhere and native 4K resolution on Xbox One X.
