Set to begin later this week, the Sea of Thieves closed beta will now boast Xbox Play Anywhere functionality.

In a post on the Sea of Thieves website, PC design lead Tim Timmins said:

As we head into Closed Beta, our next step is to fully enable Xbox Play Anywhere. We’re delighted to announce that starting in Closed Beta on January 24th, you can jump between any device and continue where you left off, whether that’s a Windows 10 PC, Windows 10 laptop, Xbox One, Xbox One S or Xbox One X. And with crossplay, you’ll always have a friend to sail with, regardless of where they play.

 

This is a huge milestone for us as we head towards launch because giving players the freedom to choose how they play lies at the heart of Sea of Thieves. This also means that if you pre-order Sea of Thieves digitally, you’ll have Xbox Play Anywhere access from launch day on March 20th. You’ll be able to play on any device, at any time, and swap devices to your heart’s content!

It makes a lot of sense in terms of getting yourself a proper pirate posse – why limit yourself to higher-end devices?

Timmins also spoke to this specifically, saying: “Our rendering team’s ambition is ‘to get Sea of Thieves running on a potato’.”
