Sea of Thieves' final beta is open to everyone

Sea of Thieves' final beta is open to everyone

The final beta version of Sea of Thieves-an upcoming Xbox Play Anywhere title-is free to play for the next three days.

With less than two weeks left before Sea of Thieves hits the deck for Xbox One and Windows 10 players, Rare has unleashed the game's final beta session, which will run its course until 2am PT on March 11. Players will be required to have an XBox Live account to access the download.

As well as all the ship-on-ship and treasure hunting shenanigans from the earlier betas, the final beta will let you get your grubby mitts on even more gold by participating in some legitimate business, ferrying cargo like pigs and chickens from port to port. This beta will also test the game's broadest amount of features yet, including Merchant Alliance voyages for the first time.

Skeleton Forts will offer "intense, emergent" opportunities, if you spot an occupied one - indicated by a skull cloud over the location - that provides players the chance to team up or compete to earn "great rewards" at "great risk". Will you work together or against each other? We're thrilled that players will be able to experience Sea of Thieves in 4K on the most powerful console ever made. The final beta is open to anyone via the XBox Store or Microsoft Store.

Absolutely! Whether co-streaming on Mixer, sharing on Twitch, uploading to YouTube or sharing via Game DVR, we are thoroughly looking forward to seeing what our players get up to.

As with all open betas, there may be issues at peak times. If this happens, we will be sharing the latest news and status via the status page on, and we will be sharing regular updates on Twitter from the official @SeaOfThieves handle.
