It's been just over a month since our last Behind the Scenes video, so we thought it was about time to dive back in and see what a few more of our crew members have been up to. With the release of the Xbox One X, it seemed only right that we share some details on how great Sea of Thieves will look in native 4K. High-res textures, high-res shadows and no dynamic scaling – the 4K pirate life is no joke!

If you haven't had the pleasure of owning a 4K screen just yet, have no fear! Sea of Thieves will still be rendering at 4K, it'll just supersample to 1080p. Ship battles will still be a glorious sight to behold.
