Sea of Thieves beta gets two day extension

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at or catch him on Twitter, here.

To iron out the bugs.

Rare will be extending the Sea of Thieves beta by two days to make up for issues players have run into.

The Sea of Thieves closed beta opened the game up to a wide range of new players, but many had issues connecting, receiving a “Too Early” error code.

Rare has dropped a few fixes for different issues, but don’t seem to have solved the problems for all those affected. To give everyone a chance to try the game they’ll be adding two further days to the beta, meaning it will now end at 12am PT, Wednesday, January 31.

Hopefully all those affected will get a chance to set sail in Rare’s multiplayer pirate adventure.
