Rare Extends 'Sea of Thieves' Closed Beta

Sea of Thieves' closed beta launched earlier this week, and developer Rare says it's going to extend it by two days after some issues prevented players from getting online.

"Some players who pre-ordered the game digitally are seeing a 'too early' message," Rare engagement manager Emma Bridle says in an update post. "We have been working with our partners across Xbox to get this resolved as smoothly and as quickly as possible."

The studio has already rolled out a fix for the issue and it wants to make sure people have time to check out the game. So, the closed beta will now end on Wednesday, January 31st at 8 a.m. GMT. Rare is also extending the closing date of its Design an Achievement contest.
