|“||Welcome to the Sea of Thieves Insider Programme, where bold pirates sail into the unknown and guide the way for those who follow! With access to preview builds of the game, Insiders see new features in the testing phase and get behind-the-scenes glimpses into the development of Sea of Thieves before the general public.|
|— From the Sea of Thieves insider page|
The Insider Programme is for Sea of Thieves fans who want to dive further into the world of Sea of Thieves development.
Players can sign-up to become an Insider, gaining access to Sea of Thieves early preview builds and new content before the general public. These players also get behind-the-scenes updates from the developers and are granted access to an exclusive section of the Forums to discuss the upcoming new changes with other Insiders and the developers. The Insider Programme is held under a soft Non-Disclosure Agreement, meaning that should a player be found discussing insider information to the general public, their access to the Insider Programme will be terminated.
Insiders are also rewarded with in-game currency and cosmetics for their efforts.
The Insider Client[edit | edit source]
The Sea of Thieves Insider (codenamed Wasserburg) is a separate client of the game that receives patches ahead of the public retail client, as such Player Pirates and progress from the public client do not carry over to Insiders. The content in this version of Sea of Thieves are works in progress and prone to contain bugs yet to be addressed.
