[Update] It seems that the Xbox Wire Blog has updated their page to announce the beta as well. It looks like the beta will run until 12:00a.m. PST on the 29th. So for all of you who haven’t brushed up on their French or don’t have Google translate, here is the link to Xbox Wire.
Xbox France just announced on their Twitter that the closed beta for Sea of Thieves will be running from January 24th through the 28th. If you aren’t already an Insider Member you can gain access by pre-ordering and if you do so you will also get some exclusive cosmetic gear. The Tweet below is in French, but a quick google translation will help you get the link or you can just go pre-order from any store you want to.

Sea of Thieves is scheduled to launch on March 20th, 2018 and this will be the first closed beta. I’d highly recommend giving it a go because it is one of those games that needs to be played to get the full idea if you will like it or not. If you want to read our thoughts and hopes of what Sea of Thieves could be we have an article about it here.
