New Sea of Thieves scale test happening this weekend

Morgan is a writer, gamer, photographer, and heavy metal enthusiast. Her passion for gaming encompasses both AAA and indie, with a heavy focus on the latter. As AllGamers' resident indie expert, you can expect her to wax poetic about all the latest and greatest indie titles whenever the opportunity arises. 

Morgan's typical day includes an indie gaming marathon and several large cups of coffee. Even on the weekend, you can often find her perched in front of the computer browsing through Steam's new releases. Her current platform of choice is PC, but having grown up with Nintendo, she also has a soft spot for the Switch (especially thanks to its ever-expanding catalogue of indies). 

If you’d like to get in touch with Morgan, you can reach out to her via email or follow her on Twitter.

Rare continues to ramp up for the Sea of Thieves launch on March 20.

This weekend, Rare will be conducting a new Sea of Thieves scale test in order to see how the game’s servers respond under heavy player load.

This weekend’s scale test will kick off tomorrow at 5 a.m. (EST) and will end on March 4 at 5 a.m. (EST). Rare has hosted several beta testing periods over the last few months, so this weekend’s test is pretty much standard procedure at this point.

Additionally, it’s good news if you missed out on previous beta testing periods, as you’ll have another chance to give Sea of Thieves a try this weekend.

Uncertain how to participate? Simply download the beta build of Sea of Thieves from the Microsoft Store and load up the game either on Xbox One or Windows 10 PC. 

Most of the game's features should be available to you during the beta test including grouping up with friends, hunting treasure, and sailing the seven seas.

Alternatively, those waiting on reviews prior to purchasing Sea of Thieves only have a few short weeks left before the game releases on March 20 for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC.
