So is this for their "insiders" only. Or is it open for all?
How can you get access in PC? Any free keys?

If you install the Insider Xbox App (on the box), open it and see if SoT is available is the best bet. I can't answer as have Founder access. Others might be able to help
Thanks @gibblesuk I've been away all the weekends of the previous runs. Will try and jump on this weekend at some point.
Really mastered their PR on this game and with all their thorough testing hopefully avoid any issues with server loads on launch. Wish some other Game studios adopted RAREs sensible approach to multiplayer
This game will give you a few hours of fun but you'll get bored fast

Play the beta for a couple days and you'll probably cancel your pre order

I can't wait for release, testing the server's means nothing in this day and age.

I know the feeling!
I’ve really given this a proper go when it’s been available to play. I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how much fun it has been! Definitely ready for more this weekend
Yes fam! Time to round up the crew and sail the high seas into the small hours!
Most fun I've had in gaming since the first 2 years or wow. Love it

Can this actually be played solo? I haven't played it much yet, but my initial impression was that you need online friends (or random strangers) to play it at all.

I played solo, not a bad game but kept dying as could not select/eat the bananas!

Yes, you get a one man ship. It's pretty easy to handle once you get the hang of it but not much good if you come across other players who want to do battle, better to run!

I managed to cash in about 7 chests on one single player session last week. It did help that I found a map in a bottle that showed me 5 hidden chests on one Island.

I actually found it a nice chilled out experience just pottering around exploring islands, finding treasure maps on beaches.

To be honest I'll probably play it most of the time solo and occasionally group up with mates.

I really can't wait for the full release. Listened to an interview with the rare studio head and it seems there is a lot more to do in the retail release.

I really didn’t get into this last weekend. Wish I hadn’t preordered what looked like an amazing game

How do you cancel a digital preorder?
I've had a few quick goes on the alpha but last night was my first proper go so here are my thoughts.

A kind chap showed the basics and after getting sunk in an initial scrap with some Germans we settled down to finding chests. At one point we took back 11 chests in one run. We ended up as a 4 man crew swapping people in and out along the way. This works really well so auto matchmaking is top notch.

There were some comedy moments along the way, namely attacking and destroying any ships daring to challenge us. Being mic'd up on this one is essential as it really requires great team work.

Yes, there are still lots of questions around content and end game but I won't write it off until it's released. It definitely has potential and if you join up with your mates, it should be great fun. For how long, I know not.

My missus, a non-gamer, reckons it looks like Fortnite. Yes, it uses the same engine and even on standard Xbox, it runs quite well. I did see some screen tearing but nothing too bad.

Oh, the sea mechanic in this game is mesmerising. Nothing even comes close to how good it is and I can't wait to try it maxed out on PC.

I've got Gamepass so am ready for some seaworthy action come 20th March.
I wish the game had an open beta just to try before spending £50 on microsoft store
I would suggest anyone interested in this game download IGN podcast unlocked episode 333 where they are joined by Craig Duncan from Rare and they basically talk about Sea of Theives post launch and what it looks like. Got me hyped for the game.

Try this google.co.uk/amp…amp

Not sure if this is the right way but I've heard you can cancel pre orders and you can refund games if you played less than 2hrs and it's 2 weeks from Purchase/release

Well I didn't played with friends but I always tried to play with a full crew.. and the max crew is only 4, I also heard the player lobby limit is 16, WTF, Games like Blackwake you can have a whole lobby on 1 ship

Hmm - quite a mixed overall opinion reading up on this. Not sure if the idea of playing a pirate is so cool that it's being forced enjoyment - if you catch my drift?

This is a unique co-op game and thus I want this to be good as I am sick to death of shoot em ups

Is this about a cruise out of Liverpool?
