Rare’s upcoming release of Sea of Thieves already looks to be off to a very popular start. The closed beta recently took place, which became overwhelmingly busy as fans flocked to try out the seafaring adventure title prior to its full release on March 20th. What’s more, it also proved to get plenty of attention on both streaming services Mixer and Twitch.
Now, thanks to an image leaked on ResetERA from Rare’s offices, there has been details unveiled on what the beta actually brought. Check out the key highlights in the list below:
- More than two million in-game hours played.
- 314,021 total players.
- 35,882 peak concurrent players.
- 402,488 quests completed.
- 14,260,440 hours watched.
- 104,204 average viewers.
- 269,000 concurrent views on Twitch.
- 871,180,805 gold earned.
- 132,969 players sailed the sea alone in a ship.
- 121,748 players were part of a two-person crew.
- 160,797 players were part of the standard four-person crew.
- 30,595 content creators.
Granted, the player count may not seem overly high for a closed beta, but there is no denying its popularity at this early stage, even by looking at the viewership. It’s a case of so far so good from Rare, and despite a number of issues that players were greeted with when trying to gain access to the beta, it looks to have been an overall positive experience.
