Sea of Thieves began its closed beta today on the Xbox One and PC via the Windows 10 Store. The only ways you could play this beta is if you pre-ordered or were given a beta key. To say the beta experience is encountering some rough seas may be a bit of an understatement. But hey, isn't that what proper betas are for?

Even if you cannot get in to play the game right now, you can maybe watch the below trailer over and over again. You can at least pretend you're playing the game!
