'Sea of Thieves' Will Have Cross-Platform Play
Game developer Rare confirms its upcoming pirate adventure Sea of Thieves will have cross-platform play between PC and Xbox One, according to Eurogamer. Microsoft made the announcement yesterday during its Gamescom press conference. Rare says it wants to maintain balance between the two platforms; right now, PC players have a slight advantage. "After running some recent tests, we found that PC players were 4.5 per cent more efficient at killing skeletons than Xbox players, and this feels close enough that it's something we'll continue to monitor," design lead Ted Timmins says in a post on the game's official website. Sea of Thieves will launch in early 2018.
