Rare announces Sea of Thieves closed beta dates

Gamescom 2017

While the big Technical Test came and went last month, an exact date wasn't revealed at the time for a Closed Beta, but now we know just when we'll be able to sale the high seas in Beta form. But then again, if you find one that really catches your fancy, especially if you like having a talking point among gaming friends, something like the new Sea of Thieves gamepad could be a good choice.

Microsoft has announced a tie-in accessory for upcoming pirate-themed action-adventure game Sea of Thieves, with a deep purple, glow-in-the-dark Xbox One controller, available as of next month. The five day beta is described by Rare as a "bespoke experience", something that's been made to give players a taste of what the full game will be like.

Microsoft said the closed beta will not be covered by an NDA as previously thought, so players can stream, create videos, share clips, take screenshots and everything else in between. All you need to do is download and install it.

If you have pre-ordered a physical version of the game through a retailer, you will need to redeem the code for the Black Dog cosmetic pack. Doing so will grant you access to the game in your library 24-hours prior to the beta beginning. We're back working hard on Sea of Thieves after the holidays and a December chock-full of announcements. The game is powered by Unreal Engine 4, features wonderful water physics and will support cross-play between Xbox One and PC.
