We’re launching our Insider Program, a unique opportunity for a select few to test early versions of Skull and Bones and share feedback. Apply now if you think you have what it takes!March 9, 2022
“Our main goal is to get real data and feedback. We want to see what our players are doing when they can play our game, when they want, how they want.” – Insider Program ad explains. “Most importantly, we want to know how they feel about the game.”
The initial group of testers will be quite small to “make sure we do everything neatly and set everything up in a way that we can fully understand the feedback we get.” People interested in participating must have “a strong interest in game development, [and] lots of time that can be devoted to testing and reporting problems, bugs, or just general feedback.” To me, it seems to work, except you won’t get paid for it: however, you’ll have to deal with a lot of bugs, crashes, and unconfigured gameplay. There is also a legally binding non-disclosure agreement.
It’s nice to have something going on and I’m looking forward to hearing how Skull and Bones now compare to our first glimpse from back in 2017. But that’s clearly still a long way off, and there’s no sign of a release date: Skull and Bones Insider Program website where you can sign up to participate in the testing program, says that the release date is “soon”.
