Rare’s pirate adventuring game Sea of Thieves announced that technical Alpha test is to begin on December 16th. You’ll have to be a member of Sea of Thieves’ insider program to have a chance at participating.

The main idea is to form a crew, sail across the ocean, and discover new islands where both mystery and danger lurk—and by danger I mean other players. Inbetween island hopping you’ll have to fend off rivals by firing your cannons into their port, and hop from your ship to theirs with your cutlass safely gripped between your teeth.
