You Can Help Stress Test Sea Of Thieves This Weekend

After the roaring success of the recent closed beta and first scale test, Sea of Thieves is once again being opened up this weekend to another Scale Test as Rare hope to test the latest updates to the services and see just how many concurrent users they can accommodate at one time.

The test has already begun, though it does end Sunday night at 9:00AEDT.

For those looking to get involved, the same rules apply as the previous tests run for the seafaring sensation. You have to have either pre-ordered the game or signed up for the Insider programme.

If you’re a hopeful applicant on Xbox One, make sure you have an Xbox Live Gold subscription, though that should go without saying.

If you happen to miss out on this occasion, Rare has said they do intend on running another beta closer to the game’s launch which will give players “a taste of the wider Sea of Thieves experience”, whatever that entails.

Sea of Thieves launches on March 20 as a Play Anywhere title on PC and Xbox One.
