4

In less than two months, Microsoft will unleash their sprawling pirate adventure, Sea of Thieves, onto Xbox One and PC. A closed beta, open to Insider program users and those who pre-ordered the game, was opened this morning. For those fortunate enough to have access to the closed beta, an amazing technical showcase of waves and water awaits. For everyone else, we have some high quality footage.

For the first time, we are offering video in the ultrawide format. We know that many of the Shacknews Chatty users and dedicated PC gamers have adopted ultrawide displays. If you enjoy this look at the game and are interested in more ultrawide content, please leave a comment in the Chatty and/or share the video on social media.

You can pre-order Sea of Thieves for Xbox One and PC from Amazon.
