Today, Rare announced the dates for the upcoming closed beta for Sea of Thieves! Rare announced that the closed beta will arrive January 24th at 4 am PST and run until 12 am January 29th!
The beta will not feature the entire game but will have 5 full days of sailing and shenanigans with your best mates. Rare said that the beta will offer a true taste of what you can expect from the full game when it releases March 20th of this year.
How do you get in? Well, if you were a part of the Insider Program before December 1st, 2017, then you get an automatic entry into the closed beta. If you did not join the Insider Program, then you can preorder the game to gain access to the beta.
And the best part of today’s announcement? The NDA will be lifted, which means players can stream, create videos, share clips and stories about the beta!!!!! This might be the best part of today’s announcement. We can’t wait to share our experiences in the beta!
Are you excited to sail the seven seas again? Let us know in the comments!! In the meantime, check out the video from Rare concerning the progression system in Sea of Thieves!
