Rare has announced that it will extend the closed beta for Sea of Thieves until Wednesday, January 31. This comes after numerous players reported issues connecting to the beta, including a "too early" message for those who pre-ordered the game digitally.
"We know your gaming hours are precious and our number one goal is to get everyone with closed beta access into the game as soon as possible," said Sea of Thieves engagement manager Emma Bridle in an update post. "We want to ensure that anyone who has missed out on any time sailing the seas still gets to enjoy the closed beta to its fullest."
The beta will now run until January 31 at 8 am GMT.
