However, if you pre-ordered the game through Best Buy or Amazon, you will need to redeem the code for the Black Dog pack. We are aware that there are some players who are being affected by the, "Too Early" error and we are working really hard to find a resolution for this.

We've reached out to Microsoft to ask whether the beta will be extended in light of the issues, and we'll update this post when we know more. A fix for these players is now being rolled out.

Sea of Thieves' closed beta kicked off yesterday for those who pre-ordered the game or signed up for the Xbox Insider Program before December 1.

It wasn't all plain sailing, however, as some players found they were unable to access the beta. You can see the error message below, which IGN encountered when attempting to launch the beta client on PC. We are now investigating on behalf of those players still receiving this error message and we will update this page in due course.

The Sea of Thieves closed beta runs through to 29 January, so there's plenty of time to give it a crack. Now, in response to those issues, developer Rare is extending its pre-release trial period.

The quirky co-op pirate adventure will allow players to sail the open seas in search of treasure with friends on both Xbox One and PC thanks to the game's Cross-Play functionality.

Despite Rare's assurances, a good chunk of those posting on the Sea of Thieves subreddit and official forums are still reporting Too Early messages and other errors.
