Sea of Thieves - HDR Settings

Sea of Thieves Cover

This game does not seem to use the Xbox HDR system calibration settings. 
Try to find data about the peak brightness of your TV on the site RTINGS.COM (value HDR peak brightness 10%). Before adjusting, make sure that you have correctly set the black level, gamma and RGB HDR range (full / limited) in your TV settings.

Sea of Thieves - HDR Settings Screen

The game has an HDR Max Brightness slider that adjusts the peak brightness. But the numeric values of the slider and the brightness of the test pattern do not correspond to the actual peak brightness of the game. The actual brightness of the game is equal to twice the value of the slider, i.e. 400 is 800 nits, 1000 is 2000 nits and etc. See the table below for understanding:

HDR Max Brightness slider valueActual Peak Brightness, Nits
400800
450900
5001000
5501100
6001200
6501300
7001400
7501500
8001600
8501700
9001800
9501900
10002000

Set the value according to the peak brightness of your TV.

If your TV always does tone mapping and this can't be turned off, then set the HDR Max Brightness slider to several thousand nits.alert-info
