Custom Sea of Thieves Xbox controller is a thing of beauty

Custom Sea of Thieves Xbox controller is a thing of beauty

Some of our favourites will no doubt be shared on Sea of Thieves' social channels and website. All that and we hosted our biggest ever Technical Alpha play session last month. 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.

Sea of Thieves, the high seas adventure that will playable on potatoes, is going to need some rigorous testing to make sure it runs on the wide collection of PC configurations as the devs intend. After what seems like ages of waiting, we're getting a beta to try the game out before it hits release.

The Closed Beta will be accessible to eligible players who joined the Sea of Thieves Insider Programme before December 12017 or who has pre-ordered the game. Buying one of these glow-in-the-dark controllers also get a player the "Ferryman Clothing Set" DLC for the game, along with other Xbox Live bonuses. 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! Find out more details on the Beta here. Also, the beta will not be under NDA, meaning players can "stream, create videos, share clips, take screenshots", and more, without worrying about the giant foot of Microsoft coming down on them, which is more than welcome.

Sea of Thieves launches on Xbox One and Windows 10 on March 20, 2018 and is an Xbox Pay Anywhere title.
