Both consoles will benefit from improved loading times.
Following other Xbox One titles which will receive enhancements for Xbox Series X/S, Rare has revealed improvements that can be expected for Sea of Thieves. Along with improved loading times, the sea-faring multiplayer title will run at 4K/60 FPS on Xbox Series X. Xbox Series S players can expect 1080p/60 FPS support and the same quick loading.
Sea of Thieves is available for Xbox One and PC along with Xbox Game Pass for both platforms. It’s seen a number of updates since launch and crossed over 15 million players since July. Overall, it’s become quite a stable title for Microsoft and testament to Rare’s ability to branch out from its usual single-player repertoire.
The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S both launch worldwide on November 10th. Other titles that will receive next-gen enhancements include Gears 5 – which is also getting new content in the form of New Game Plus and Dave Bautista as a campaign character – and Halo: The Master Chief Collection with 120 FPS support in multiplayer. Stay tuned for more details on other titles in the coming days.
