Rare is planning to conduct a few scale tests this month in the lead up to the launch of “Sea of Thieves” on March 20, Microsoft has announced.
During the Closed Beta in January, “Sea of Thieves” saw the largest influx of players to-date, and unfortunately, the game suffered a little from the mass of players all trying to play the game at once.
These newly announced scale tests will help provide Rare with more invaluable feedback on server capabilities to ensure a smooth launch experience.
As such, the new beta will be going live with the developer testing various backend techniques to ready the game for release.
If you are keen to get into the beta, you can pre-order the game to receive a code, or keep an eye on Microsoft’s various social media platforms, where the publisher sometimes shares codes to eager fans.
Sea of Thieves Beta – What time does it start?
The first of the new tests begins on Friday, February 16 at 10 a.m. GMT and concludes on Monday, February 18 at 10 a.m. GMT, and is open to Xbox Insiders and Closed Beta participants.
Microsoft notes that the sole purpose of these tests is to test servers at a high scale of player concurrency, evaluating server stress, and identifying areas for continued improvement ahead of launch.
While players are welcome to partake in the tests, this added scale is expected to bring to light issues that Rare can learn from and address, and is not reflective of the final game.
Issues may include sessions getting interrupted, inability to join the game at certain times during the weekend, and hiccups when using shops in-game.
