Ubisoft is inviting a select number of players to play (and test) its Skull & Bones pirate game.
Its new Insider Program (discovered by Eurogamer,) will allow handpicked players access to a very early version of the game to respond to Ubisoft issues.
This is not quite the same thing as a beta, where players can try out a near-complete version of the game early, but rather more like a quality-assured slot where early access testers will work closely with Ubisoft to resolve in-game issues.
Anyone can sign up for the Insider Program, but only those “dedicated to testing versions in progress” of Skull & Bones will be admitted. They will also require a lot of patience and commitment, and must adhere to Ubisoft’s non-disclosure agreement and code of conduct, the company said.
It added in its application: “Our primary goal is to get real data and feedback. We want to see what our players do when they’re free to play our game at any time. whenever they want, whenever they want. Most importantly, we want to know how they feel about the game.”
The ideal candidates, Ubisoft said, should be a fan of Skull & Bones and interested in developing the game, have plenty of free time to play and give feedback.
