Since tomorrow, closed beta testing Sea of Thieves. It will be held from 24 to 29 January and will offer players a variety of interesting activities that will allow them to taste real pirate life. In addition, this is a great chance to try the game before its official release on March 20 on PC (Windows 10) and Xbox One. The official site of the Sea of Thieves was a set of answers to questions that you may have about a closed “beta”.
So, closed beta testing will begin on January 24 and end on January 29 . To gain access to it, you had to join the insider program before December 1, 2017, or make a pre-order Sea of Thieves. If you did this, then it remains to install the game, which is already in your library.
If the reservation was made in retail, then you need to pay off the Black Dog cosmetic code. Once you do this, Sea of Thieves will appear in your library and you will be able to download it. Rare also recalls that the project has the support of cross-platform games, so PC users and Xbox One can play together. Moreover, you can safely move from device to device (desktop PC on Windows 10, laptop on Windows 10, Xbox One, Xbox One S or Xbox One X), continuing exactly from where they were.
When asked about the content waiting for the participants of the closed beta test, Rare answered that they would give “an individual experience” to the players, which was designed to give everyone a taste of pirated life, such as they can expect in the full version of the game. But this is not a release version, and it will not have all the final content.
In addition, the developers once again reminded that this time the testing does not fall under a non-disclosure agreement (NDA), so everyone can broadcast and record Sea of Thieves, take screenshots and discuss it with other users of the Network. Rare asks users to add their “Sea of Thieves” tag when creating their own game content, so that everyone can see it, including the developers themselves – they promise to share their favorite videos and screenshots in their official accounts in social networks and on the site.
