Sea of Thieves Open Beta phase begins on March 9th

Rare has announced that the final – and open – beta phase for Sea of Thieves will begin on March 9th. As its title suggests, this beta will be available to everyone and will last until March 11th at 10am GMT.

This open beta will allow Rare to test a broader range of features than ever before, and it also gives anyone who’s interested a chance to play and experience the game for themselves.

In the Final Beta, alongside the Gold Hoarders, Rare will be testing Merchant Alliance voyages for the first time, giving players an entirely new way to play. Rare is also introducing an intense, emergent opportunity into the world with the chance of a Skeleton Fort now being occupied.

Sea of Thieves is currently scheduled for a March 20th release!
