'Scale Tests' to Set Sail This Weekend - If You Played Beta, You Can Play Again

'Scale Tests' to Set Sail This Weekend - If You Played Beta, You Can Play Again -

If you are a previous beta tester for Sea of Thieves, you'll be able to take part in another weekend's game play when Rare conducts "scale tests". Another will be scheduled prior to the game's launch After the initial beta event, the team has been working on better network optimization to ensure it can handle a great number of players. The event takes place from Friday, February 16th and runs through Sunday, February 18th for beta testers on all platforms.

What to Expect

With this added scale we expect – and plan – to see issues, that we can learn from and address. Not only are we looking to hit scale, we will also purposefully be stressing our services by throttling performance at certain times, testing the game in different data centers around the world, and simulating deliberate outages.

Some examples of the issues we expect to see are:

  • Sessions being interrupted
  • An inability to join the game at certain times during the weekend
  • Issues when using shops in-game

Rare also revealed that another beta test will be conducted prior to the launch of Sea of Thieves.

You can read the full post on the Sea of Thieves site.
