The Sea of Thieves technical alpha has ended yesterday, leaving all players that tried it wanting more. Rare LTD wants to thank everyone that tried out the game the past days by giving them access to the closed beta phase that will be taking place in 2018.
As Rare LTD announced, all players that took part in Alpha will be granted the title of Founder, which will be accompanied by a badge for the game’s forums. The post is full of heartfelt comments from players who are already in love with the gameplay of Sea of Thieves and can’t wait to play more on beta. It reads:
We hope those of you who had the opportunity to enjoyed your voyage this past week, and we’re so glad you could be part of the biggest and best Sea of Thieves Technical Alpha ever! We’ve had some epic stories shared with us, including an amazing gold haul!
Alas, as with all good things – we must bring the Technical Alpha to a close. Your feedback and the data you’ve generated in the past year of testing has helped get Sea of Thieves ship-shape. To thank you for your help during this stage in development, we’ve granted you the title of Founder!
Furthermore, the developers have hosted a live stream for Extra Life, giving us some cannon action along with software engineer Jessica Baker, audio intern Katie Tarrant, retention designer Josh Mitchell, and social media intern Steven Dillon.
Sea of Thieves is clearly one of the most anticipated games for 2018, baring the expectations for it to be our next favorite multiplayer game. If you are looking for a more casual yet friendly experience than most multiplayer games out there then make sure to keep track of Sea of Thieves development in 2018.
Sea of Thieves will launch for Xbox One and PC on March 20th with its closed beta taking place in the first months (probably) of 2018.
