'Sea of Thieves' (ALL) Launches New Beta/Scale Test

by Rainier on Feb. 23, 2018 @ 10:43 a.m. PST

Sea of Thieves is an immersive, shared-world adventure game filled with pirates, unexpected dangers and loot for the taking.

Sea of Thieves is a uniquely co-operative multiplayer experience1 set in a shared world that combines the thrill of adventuring together with friends with the unpredictability of emergent play and unexpected threats – both from other players and the world itself.

Be the pirates you want to be, share adventures with friends and set your own rules, roles and goals in a world where every sail on the horizon is another crew of players with unknown intent.

Explore, fight and live the pirate life together in this uniquely fresh and fun multiplayer game. Choose your voyage and decide how you’ll approach adventures in a world where every sail on the horizon is another crew of players with unknown intent.

Sea of Thieves also supports cross-play across the Xbox One family of devices and Windows 10 PCs so that everyone can play regardless of their preferred platform.

Jump aboard this weekend and take part in a Sea of Thieves Scale Test ahead of the launch on March 20th. This weekend’s Sea of Thieves Scale Test is open to all Xbox Insiders on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC! (in regions where Sea of Thieves is available)

The Scale Test starts Friday, February 23rd 12pm GMT (4am PST) and ends Sunday, February 25th at 10am GMT (2am PST).

To participate, just download the Xbox Insider Hub from the Store on Xbox One or a Windows 10 PC and follow these steps:

  1. Launch the Xbox Insider Hub.
  2. From the main landing page, select Insider content from menu to the left.
  3. Under Games, select Sea of Thieves or Sea of Thieves Scale Test.
  4. Select Join.
  5. Wait to be redirected to the Store, then download and play Sea of Thieves!

The goal of this is to test work done since the Closed Beta and try to hit a higher number of concurrent players than ever before! Therefore, expect there may be periods of interruption in game or some features may not work as intended.

Features will be similar to the Closed Beta and voyages will be limited to the Gold Hoarder trading company.

Key Features:

  • A unique co-op experience that combines the thrill of adventuring together with friends with the unpredictability of a shared landscape and its threats, both from other players and the world itself.
  • Designed around players working together with shared goals and rewards, where you’ll go on epic voyages in search of legendary artefacts and buried treasure, but in a world where every sail on the horizon is another crew. What flag are they flying, and what do they want?
  • Crew up with your friends and be the pirates you want, choosing your own roles and goals. Explore the world, take on quests, or seek out conflict. It’s your crew against the world, and how you deal with other crews is entirely up to you.
  • Invites players into a beautiful world with a distinctive art style, ripe for exploration and with mythical creatures lurking on islands and under the inviting surface of the sea…
  • Offers an experience that will evolve over time, landing in players’ hands early and growing thanks to community insights and feedback. New ways to play will be unveiled as the world expands and evolves.

Sea of Thieves launches for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC on March 20th, 2018.
