Rare's multiplayer sea-faring pirate title Sea of Thieves is on its way to release next month, and the game's official system requirements have just been officially revealed.

The game's minimum and recommended specs, which were revealed yesterday on Sea of Thieves' official website, features three specification lists for minimum, recommended, and "extreme" video display settings. Alongside the three main lists, Rare also included system requirements to play the game at 540p at 30fps, in an attempt to "deliver a great version of the game even for those with computers below our official minimum spec," as PC design lead Ted "Red Rage" Timmins explained in the system specs post.
