Rare noted in the announcement that the beta will not offer the game's full experience, saying "we want to keep a good selection of things up our sleeves for players to discover at launch". The devs ask that you tag the content "Sea of Thieves" so they can see it as well.

Microsoft is going all out for its support for "Sea of Thieves", its upcoming big release set to come out on February 6. As far as access goes, anyone that signed up for the Sea of Thieves Insider Program before December 1 and anyone that pre-orders will be able to participate.

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 Sea of Thieves Closed Beta will run from 12 p.m. GMT on January 24 to 8 a.m. GMT on January 29 (4 a.m. PST on January 24 to 12 a.m. PST on January 29), which gives pirates a full five days of sailing, shanties and shenanigans".


Once this has been done, the game will appear in the games library 24 hours before the closed beta starts.

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.

Sea of Thieves releases on Xbox One and PC on March 20th, 2017.
