The Sea Of Thieves Closed Beta Sets Sail On 24th January

Share

We won't be testing the full game during this Closed Beta phase: we want to keep a good selection of things up our sleeves for players to discover at launch. Anyway dropping a month before the planned March release of Rare's highly anticipated Sea of Thieves, Microsoft are releasing a special limited Sea of Thieves inspired Xbox One controller. Starting on January 24th, Sea of Thieves will allow those who pre-ordered the game, as well as those who joined the Insider Program, to get a taste of pirate life.

For the piratical gamers who want to pick up one of these controllers, you can pre-order one now for $75.

It's a nice take on the undersea motif of "Sea of Thieves", with this special edition controller coming in a deep purple body that's been made translucent to reveal the laser-etched barnacle-like details carved in its inner side.

The closed beta will start on 24 January at 12PM GMT / 7AM EST / 6AM CST / 5AM PST/ 8AM CET and run until Monday 29 January. Doing so will grant you access to the game in your library 24-hours prior to the beta beginning. Once you have done this, the game will appear in your games library 24 hours before the Closed Beta begins. If you reserved the game at retail, you'll first need to redeem the code you received for the Black Dog cosmetic pack.

The company said the move was, "part of a larger initiative to offer our guests simpler ingredients and cleaner menu labels". Even though Dunkin' Donuts has been expanding its business footprint, the company says it's now scaling back its menu.

Set to release on February 6, the Sea of Thieves controller debuts a full month and a half earlier than the game itself, which will become available on March 20. The game is powered by Unreal Engine 4, features wonderful water physics and will support cross-play between Xbox One and PC.
