'Sea of Thieves'-Themed Xbox One Controller Glows in the Dark

Sea of Thieves Closed Beta Coming January 24-29! - Xbox Wire Pirate sim Sea of Thieves gets a closed beta later this month

Rare's executive producer Joe Neate shared more details on the closed beta that starts on January 24 in an Xbox Wire post for Xbox One and PC title along with details on what players will be able to access during the beta. The best part is that it won't be covered by an NDA like the Alpha Technical Tests were. It's not exactly an open beta, but access will be guaranteed to anybody who signed up to be a Sea of Thieves Insider - as well as anybody who pre-ordered the game.

If you pre-ordered the game through the Xbox or Windows Store, the client will show up 24 hours before the beta begins. The devs ask that you tag the content "Sea of Thieves" so they can see it as well.




The beta will start from 4:00 AM PST on the 24th (which translates to Noon GMT, 1:00 PM CET, and 7:00 AM EST), and it will end five days later, on January 29th 00:00 AM PST (8:00 AM GMT, 9:00 AM CET, and 3:00 AM EST). 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. However, the developer added that "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 March 20!"

As many of you Xbox One users already know, Microsoft releases new hardware with a new and cool design.
