And on Series S – at the same frame rate, but at 1080p.
Developers Sea of Thieves at Rare have confirmed how they are optimizing their co-op action for next-gen consoles.
The main changes will affect downloads, which will be much faster, as well as the frame rate in the game: on both Xbox Series, the game will run at 60 fps. The Series X and Series S versions differ in image resolution.
Xbox Series X – native 4K, 60 fps
Xbox Series S – 1080p, 60 fps
By comparison, on current-generation consoles, Sea of Thieves runs at 30 frames per second. It runs at 4K on the Xbox One X and 900p on the One S.
The optimized version of the game will be available on Xbox Series launch day, November 10. It will also be accessible to Game Pass subscribers.
