Before the full game comes out this March, Microsoft are giving you the chance to take part in a Sea of Thieves closed beta.

This closed beta wil  from 12 p.m. GMT on Jan. 24 to 8 a.m. GMT on Jan. 29

This will give players full five days of sailing, shanties and shenanigans. Rare has crafted a bespoke experience for Closed Beta players that offers a true taste of what “Sea of Thieves” has to offer. They won’t be testing the full game during this Closed Beta phase to keep a good selection of things up their sleeves for players to discover at launch.

How can you join we hear you ask? You would of had to join the Sea of Thieves Insider Programme before December 1st, 2017, or pre-order the game. More details on how you can download the beta can be found here:
