Hello pirate! You’re likely reading this because you’ve been affected by a pesky ThingBeard error and would like to know what to do. Apologies that something has gone wrong, but let’s get you up and plundering again! Find your ThingBeard in the list below, and steps to resolve them.

KiwiBeard

This can be caused by any of the following:

  • The Servers Are Closed – We are not running a play session when you tried to log in, so you cannot play Sea of Thieves right now.
  • You have more than one Gamertag signed in to your console. Please sign all other accounts out of the console, and only launch the game with the one account that has been invited to play.

CinnamonBeard & BronzeBeard
We were unable to connect you to the game. Please do the following:

  • Press the Guide Button on your controller
  • Highlight Sea of Thieves
  • Press the Menu Button (to the right of the Guide Button on your controller)
  • Highlight "Quit" and press A
  • Re-launch Sea of Thieves from your Pins, Recent or My Games & Apps areas of your console
  • Navigate the menu and join a game as usual

You must be signed into Xbox Live to play Sea of Thieves. Ensure your Xbox Live status is connected and then sign in and try again.

Can arise if new players are temporarily prevented from joining the game as part of an effort to resolve server issues. If this is the case, we'll get everyone back in and playing as quickly as possible! This may also be caused by antivirus/firewall settings, proxy servers or other network management/manipulation tools.

Denimbeard

The denimbeard error can display during the matchmaking flow on the Insider version of Sea of Thieves. Should you see this error it means you are not signed up to the Insider programme. You can sign up HERE providing you are 18+ years of age and own a Game Pass subscription or you own Sea of Thieves physically or digitally.

Alternatively, you may have been removed from the old pioneer programme or the new Insider programme for breaking the Terms and Conditions you agreed to when signing up. For further support on this issue please use the 'Raise a support request below'.
