    With the people I know its the early 20's females and up to the older and too slow for FPS's these days people.

    Moving my pc out of living room to paint and only target I have is getting it back down and set up for the release of this game, get a few people over and try borrow another xbox and monitor to make a full party in same room.

    The closed beta has been updated and now it's twice as big and that means that the final game is going to be something great even at launch. :)

    We all know filesize is a coefficient of quality!

    Srsly, some of the idiocy I have seen about some games having small filesizes.

    @LittleSparra Who said that? I just said that the content has been doubled apparently, which was the main complaint until now. Isn't that worth mentioning or what? When have I complained about small games?

    @8bitMofo I expect a lot of new content in the final version and that's what excites me. :)

    I will give this another hour or so this weekend, in the hope the extra bits excite me, I want to be excited by the game.

    X enhanced now apparently. Got it on the download for later.

    @richardiox Perhaps that is the reason why the game is much bigger now? But that would catch me by surprise because it looked pretty X-enhanced until now. I haven't played the latest built yet though.

    I didn't say you were meaning that, Vanilla. More that filesizes don't necessarily mean anything.

    Duff, play with others for the best experience. I won't be on.though, boo!

    Finally get to try the bits they've left out till now, which means I'll have sampled all of the announced features I can think of, I'm not expecting these to blow me away but at least I will have a better opinion of the full launch product.

    @LittleSparra I'm just expecting much more content if the file size is twice as big as before, unless it is because of X enhancements but that would be surprising because the game looked pretty X-enhanced to me the last time I played. It would be great if someone with Xbox/S could confirm if the file size is also 18.49 GB or around 7 GB like yesterday.

    Hey up, I see this is open to us general plebs too, so think I will try to give it a go over the weekend and see if I do want to get it after all.

    X enhancements aren't being released until the 20th.

    There's is something Scorpio based in this update, if you do the lb,rb trick. Almost looks like textures perhaps which seems strange if it's not 4k res. Maybe someone with more knowledge can work out what it means. Not run the game since the update yet but it doesn't appear in the enhanced game dash list. Would be strange to appear if it's not till 20th though.

    Tried this, got immediately sent into a game without so much a tutorial or anything?

    Doesn't really get me excited.

    Learn by doing Malek, learn by doing!

    bumpers bring up radial menus
    RT uses whatever is in your hands
    Y switches between weapons
    B puts stuff away
    LT shows a map to a crewmate, while RT lets you bring it up yourself

    The controls I could learn by myself. But what does the game actually want me to do? Surely a bit of introduction to the various available activities would help.

    There should be a weird fellow in a tent on the beach of your starter island. Get a quest from him, then go treasure hunting!

    Take the quest to your ship, go to the table that says 'propose voyage' (if you're in a sloop, it'll be the small table opposite the map table), then drop it there (you may have to vote for it). You should then have a map or two in your RB radial. Find those islands on the map (match the shapes, basically), then set sail and go dig up some booty.

    I thought I'd give it another go tonight, but after setting sale in a storm, getting lost and trying to keep my bost afloat, I actually got seasick.

    I managed to see an island over the huge waves, and struggling to get there, only to find I got completely turned around and ended back at the stater island.

    I feel really nauseated now, so I had to turn it off.

    I am totally clueless as to what I'm supposed to do. Skeletons are tough.

    Go to the armoury on your boat, get an Eye of Reach, pick 'em off from a distance (and then remember to refill your ammo :D )

    They need to make more effort to guide you. Hopefully the full game does!

    I think there'll probably be a little bit of prodding when you start the full game, but I hope it's not too much; I kind of liked that the first time I played I had no idea what I was doing, then the second time it all started to come together. The third time, I was teaching a newbie the ropes. It felt really rewarding to me.

    Aye, hopefully it will.

    I will stress that this game is so much better, and is designed as such, when you play with others and actually talk to them. It's asking you to go back on years of party chat and muting strangers (or you can still do this, but if no friends are online...) and that's where a lot of the charm (and of course, woe) lies.

    The early days of Xbox 360 were amazing, used to have some hilarious times on uno and soulcalibur chatting to random people.

    Probably why I'm struggling a bit. Keeps failing to put people in with me. "Searching the seas" for ages. I have a gamepass trial I'm holding on to. Will try again outside of the beta I think!

    I think they're still stress testing it too, so could be matchmaking is borked at points.

    In many ways SoT is taking a lot of risks vis game design, multiplayer philosophy, etc. It is absolutely NOT a standard 2017 MP game in many ways . I think it will suffer for it a fair bit with many who bounce off it hard, but I also think if we all want novel experiences, we should be prepared to adapt a bit.

    Totally agree it needs more of an introduction though :D

    I can't seem to pick up any quests, I've reloaded too. I just hangs at the counting coins part, then finally times out.
