Sea of Thieves expands technical alpha pool, talks Xbox One X optimizations

Sea of Thieves is planning to go out with a bang in 2017 as it expands its technical alpha pool for one final, massive test. Rare announced that anyone who signs up to become an Insider by December 1st will be invited to the fun.

“Everyone who joins the Insider Programme by the cut-off date of December 1st will be invited to the next play session — our biggest and best yet — with the latest brace of brand new features to test,” the studio said. “Yes, as promised, all eligible Insiders are now getting their chance to jump in and play Sea of Thieves before its release next year.”

The Sea of Thieves Xbox team recently discussed some of the optimizations that are being done to get the game looking its best for the Xbox One X. Even if you’re not planning to play on that console, you might want to watch the video below and drool over the graphics.

This game is definitely worth checking out. Anyone who hasn’t signed up but has been curious about it should sign up asap. Just keep in mind it has an NDA which means no gushing over it in these comments. Q.Q

Implication seems to potentially be pointing to a beta or paid testing coming after the tech alpha finishes up.
