Microsoft is going all out for its support for "Sea of Thieves", its upcoming big release set to come out on February 6. The best part is that it won't be covered by an NDA like the Alpha Technical Tests were. Buying one of these glow-in-the-dark controllers also get a player the "Ferryman Clothing Set" DLC for the game, along with other Xbox Live bonuses.
Microsoft has just announced that PC and Xbox One bound Sea of Thieves is getting an Closed Beta. We revealed March 20 as our launch date and made a star of an unsuspecting chicken with a swashbuckling trailer, kicked off pre-orders, revealed how you progress through the world of Sea of Thieves, and showed off our haunting Limited Edition controller. You can still access the closed beta when it starts by preordering the game between now and the time that the beta starts, but you'll have to download the closed beta client first.
The closed beta will run for a five day period, from 4am PST on January 24 to 12am PST on January 29. Players are free to stream, create videos, share clips, take screenshots or do anything else their minds come up with.
