Second Round of Scale Testing Begins Today for XBox Insiders

Posted by Suzie Ford on Feb 23, 2018  | Comments

Second Round of Scale Testing Begins Today for XBox Insiders -

Sea of Thieves Executive Producer Joe Neate has taken to the official site to announce the commencement of the second weekend Scale Test. The event begins today and ends on Sunday, February 25th. During the test, players can expect to "see issues" so the team "can learn from and address". The goal is to manage traffic of high player counts trying to connect to the game.

The Scale Test is open for XBox Insiders who've had previous closed beta access.

What features are in this?

This will purposefully be a similar feature set to the Closed Beta, again restricted to the Gold Hoarders trading company and accompanying Voyages. The purpose of this test is to drive scale and test issues at a high scale of player concurrency. We will not be seeking feedback on the game experience itself.

Read the full post on the Sea of Thieves site or check out the video below (produced prior to the first Scale Test last weekend).
