Sea of Thieves Scale Test This Weekend

Sea of Thieves Website announces a weekend Sea of Thieves Scale Test will get underway tomorrow. This will be available to all who had access to the recent closed beta test as well as all Xbox Insiders. They warn that this may be a disrupted experience, since dealing with issues is one of the things they are testing:

Scale Testing
Since the Closed Beta, our services team have been assessing their plans for launch to ensure the game stands up to the amount of interest we’re expecting to see. As a result of the Closed Beta, we are planning on running a couple of Scale Tests between now and launch, with the first of these beginning on Friday, February 16th at 10am GMT (2am PST) and ending on Sunday, February 18th at 10am GMT (2am PST).

The goal of this is to test a lot of the work we’ve done since the Closed Beta, and to try and hit a higher concurrent players number than we’ve ever seen before.

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
