Sea of Thieves is shaping up to be a pretty unique multiplayer pirate adventure with a helping of whimsy. The game tasks you with taking to the seas with a pirate crew made up of your friends, searching for booty and battling other players. Sea of Thieves will also carry the flag as one of Microsoft's exclusives, featuring Xbox Play Anywhere support across Xbox One and Windows 10.
As part of its development process, Rare has been developing the game with a little help from a community of Sea of Thieves Insiders through a series of technical tests. If you want to throw your hat in the ring to try the game during one of these tests, you can sign up to be a Sea of Thieves Insider. If you're already signed up, keep an eye on your email inbox for an invitation. Rare confirms that they're going out in waves, so it may take a bit to show up.
