Sea of Thieves is running a 'scale test' this weekend

0

Another beta with new content is also on the way

There will be a couple more chances to play Sea of Thieves before it launches on March 20.

Rare is planning to hold a "scale test" for its open-sea multiplayer pirate adventure game from Friday, February 16 at 2:00am Pacific until Sunday, February 18 at 2:00am Pacific. If you participated in the recent closed beta, you're all set to jump back in. Xbox Insiders are also invited to play.

Content-wise, it'll be the same as before, though the stress test will bring about some technical funkiness. Rare expects to see problems like: sessions being interrupted, the inability to join games at certain times during the weekend, and issues with using the shops in-game.

Following this weekend's test, Rare plans to run another closed beta closer to launch which will give players "a taste of the wider Sea of Thieves experience." I might just hold off for that one.
