Rare has confirmed that Sea of Thieves will not include an editor for character creation. Players will not be able to customize the appearance and traits of their pirate, a choice the developer deemed necessary for the implementation of some mechanics.
In addition to having disclosed the details on system requirements, new information has emerged on the customization of Rare’s pirate game.
As evidenced by Eurogamer.net during a preview event, Sea of Thieves will put aside the traditional editors to propose an alternative system called Infinite Pirate Generator, with which 8 pirates will be randomly generated at the start of each new adventure.
Users will be free to repeat the random generation at their discretion until they have found a combination of their liking (pirates of different stature, size, weight, gender, etc.) will be produced.
According to the statements of Rare, this decision was made for game design needs, so as to allow the implementation of some mechanics that can change the appearance of the protagonist. Furthermore, over the last few days, the software house has unveiled various details about the game such as the formal rejection of loot boxes and DLC, without forgetting the new information regarding the endgame.
Remember that Sea of Thieves will be available on Xbox One and Windows 10 starting March 20.
