I pre ordered but will probably cancel after the beta since it will be on gamepass.

If you decide to play during the weekend you can hit me up to play as a crew. My Gamer tag is JODEGAMER.



Damn glad I saw this thread. For whatever reason I though it started on Friday. Hope it has substantially more content the Alpha.

This is what Rare said regarding whats in the beta.

"[A]: We’ve crafted a bespoke experience for Closed Beta players that has been designed to give everyone a taste of the pirate life that they can expect in the full version of the game at release. We won’t be testing the full game during the Closed Beta phase: we want to keep a good selection of things up our sleeves for players to discover at launch.

ding w I read somewhere that they are adding more content to the beta than the alpha. I didnt play the alpha so im excited to try out the beta.



Will this be playable offline? Is there a story mode? I would like to give this game a shot if it does. The game world looks intriguing.

There isnt a story mode but you can play the game solo but it will be online. If you play solo the smaller ships are faster than the ships with crews so they can out run the,.



I won't be in the beta, and won't actually be buying the game at all unless they decide to release it on Steam for us Win7 scrubs lol, but I'm interested to hear what people think of the game, so I'll be checking this thread out and see what you guys have been up to. Be sure to post lots of screenshots and videos! :P

Still using Win7? The upgrade was free and Win10 is more efficient then Win7.. why did you choose to stay with 7?
