Sea of Thieves also supports cross-play across the Xbox One family of devices and Windows 10 PCs so that everyone can play regardless of their preferred platform.

In the Final Beta, alongside the Gold Hoarders, we will be testing Merchant Alliance voyages for the first time, giving players an entirely new way to play.

Its been teased and anticipated but Rare have now announced that the final beta for Sea Of Thieves will run from Friday 9th March at 12pm GMT to Sunday 11th March at 10am GMT. Players shouldn't be surprised if they end up fighting with other groups over the prized key to gain access to the loot. And, unlike previous sessions that required players to join the Insider Program or pre-order the game, this beta is completely open to everyone.

Console players will be pleased to discover that Xbox One X enhancements will be live for the duration of the beta, allowing for 4K output. The forts that players have come across in past betas have the potential to be occupied by skeletons and this is signalled with a cloud above them so that players know that there could be something good hidden in them. Or might they even be there already? We can't wait to watch and find out.

Executive producer John Neate provided more info and some sort of final speech in the occasion, penning an open letter to the community on the official Sea of Thieves blog where he detailed the new stuff included in the build. Anyone can take part in the final beta, and there is no restriction on streaming via Mixer or Twitch, sharing screenshots, or uploading game captures to show off on YouTube. Rare will be keeping everyone abreast of any issues the game is experiencing over on the Sea of Thieves Twitter account.

Goldman CEO Blankfein prepares to exit as soon as year-end
The 63-year-old Blankfein could also retire ahead of the bank's 150th anniversary year in 2019. He was forced to testify before Congress, and Goldman Sachs later paid billions in fines.

Thanks to everyone that has helped us get to where we are so far.

This beta isn't held under any NDA, so you're free to stream and share your stories on the internet.

Here's to the next leg of the journey.

Sea of Thieves is scheduled for release on March 20, 2018.
