‘X’ marks Sea of Thieves’ closed beta on January 24


A bottle just washed up on the shore of Massively OP’s treasure island, and tucked inside of it was a note that informed us that the closed beta for Sea of Thieves was scheduled to run in just a couple of weeks.

From January 24th through the 29th, testers will be able to check out some — but not all — of what the game offers. This beta is available only for those who joined Rare’s Insider Program before December 1st or have pre-ordered the game. It will run on both Xbox One and PC. There is no NDA planned for the event, so streaming and screenshots are fair game.

“We’ve crafted a bespoke experience for closed beta players that offers a true taste of the pirate life and a great chance to get your sea legs ahead of our full release on March 20th,” Rare said.

Only available to those who have pre-ordered and those who joined some Insider Program before December 1st?

Here’s hoping they atleast have some kind of open beta. My pirates hype slowly faded away after the Pirate of The Caribbean movies…


Considering the game launches in March? There’s a high chance that February will have an open beta period. That or early March.
