Sea of Thieves teases a larger world in its next alpha test

The jolly, rip-roaring fun of Sea of Thieves is only going to get crazier as more players and features come in the next alpha playtest.

Rare posted a short video today teasing some of the improvements due to arrive in port in Technical Alpha 0.1.1. In addition to inviting more pirates into the alpha, Rare is creating a skeletal uprising, adding fall damage, and rolling back the world map to reveal more locations, more encounters, and more outposts.

Check it out after the jump and cross your fingers that you might get into the test!

I am in the Insider testing group now, got it downloaded so hopefully can play next test, missed out on the last one due to some email sign up issue.

HAHA! This looks fun. Please happen. Too many kickdusters but this I wanna see as it really has something going for it.

This isn’t a kickstarter.

Did not say it was, just in general I have seen any kind of starter, farter, whambamAAAcarter, go to dust. Sorry Pinhead. :D

God I wish this game had included third person as standard, it looks like so much fun :(

This 1st person thing is the part I REALLY DO NOT LIKE.

For me it’s a deal breaker, was pretty gutted when I learned it was 1st person only.

Sounds like a Team Fortress/Overwatch steal kinda thing then?

I can’t watch the Sea of Thieves videos any more; they get me far too excited for a game that I can’t play immediately.

Agreed. It sounded like this game would make it before April. Reading the tester feedback, it doesn’t seem like it will drop anytime soon. Mid-summer or fall seems more likely.
