Sea of Thieves Closed Beta Hits Xbox One and PC on Jan

Sea of Thieves Closed Beta Hits Xbox One and PC on Jan Sea of Thieves Closed Beta Hits Xbox One and PC on Jan
Melba Vasquez | 10 January, 2018, 21:52

Sea of Thieves is one of the few Xbox One console exclusives now slated for 2018, but hopefully that changes in the coming months as we already begin the countdown to this year's E3 where hopefully Microsoft has some big plans up their sleeves. All that and we hosted our biggest ever Technical Alpha play session last month. We'll have plenty to share, show off and celebrate before then, but we're beginning 2018 with the announcement of our upcoming Closed Beta dates.

As detailed on the official Sea of Thieves site, the closed beta will begin on January 24 at 4 AM PT / 7 AM ET / 12 PM GMT and will run until 12 AM PT / 3 AM ET / 8 AM GMT on January 29. We won't be testing the full game during the Closed Beta phase: "we want to keep a good selection of things up our sleeves for players to discover at launch".

"We've crafted a bespoke experience for Closed Beta players that has been created to give everyone a taste of the pirate life that they can expect in the full version of the game at release". So get your calendars out and get those dates pencilled in!

If you pre-ordered Sea of Thieves digitally from the Xbox Store, the beta will automatically appear in your game library 24 hours before it begins. There won't be any NDA for the beta, so feel free to stream, record video, or take a treasure trove of screenshots to your heart's content. If all goes well, they're hoping to share some of their favourites on social media and their website.

Naturally, the closed beta won't provide access to the entire game, but it should sate the curiosity of anyone keen on this pirate cooperative adventure.
