Sea of Thieves Closed Beta Detailed and Dated

Sea_of_Thieves_Controller

If you happen to be a controller enthusiast or just appreciate some good design, you can also pick up the limited edition Sea of Thieves controller from the Microsoft Store for $74.99, which is set to release next month on February 6.

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). Once you have done this, the game will appear in your games library 24 hours before the Closed Beta begins.

If you haven't pre-ordered the game and want to get into the Closed Beta, you can pre-order Sea of Thieves here. So get your calendars out and get those dates pencilled in!

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. 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.

Custom controllers for specific games aren't always great and they are rarely worth getting - a paintjob is unlikely to really make you want to spend even more on a controller.

Sea of Thieves - Xbox One Pre-orders LIVE, Discounted to $47.99!

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