One of the main Xbox Series X features is the ability to launch thousands of games from previous generations of Xbox. Moreover, all the old games will run on the new console in the highest possible quality. Some of them will have additional improvements, such as doubling the frame rate, as was recently explained in detail on the official Xbox site by Jason Ronald, director of program management for Xbox Series X.
The entire list of backwards-compatible titles is currently undisclosed, but Sea of Thieves, the pirate adventure, will definitely be among them.
It was confirmed on Twitter by Joe Neate, the game’s executive producer. He didn’t specify what kind of improvements Sea of Thieves will receive on XSX, but he advised readers to study Ronald’s recent news post. Based on this article, we can assume that the project will at least get accelerated downloads, support for Quick Resume function, and probably get an increased frame rate.
Sea of Thieves will appear in Steam on June 3.
