If you’ve been hoping to jump on board with the Sea of Thieves Technical Alpha you’re in luck; Rare has announced that everyone that signs up to the Insider Programme by December 1 will be invited to the next play session – which will also be the biggest, to date.

The upcoming pirate-themed online multiplayer has been in Technical Alpha for almost a year with an ever-increasing number of players being invited to take part and provide feedback.

We’re [..] coming up on a full year of the Sea of Thieves Technical Alpha. It’s served the game incredibly well and given thousands upon thousands of budding buccaneers a chance to hit the seas on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC – and we’ll soon be waving goodbye to the Technical Alpha in its current form, so this is your final chance to get involved!

Signing up to the Insider Programme is free and you must be 18 years or older. For more information, check out the official site.

Sea of Thieves is scheduled for release in early 2018 on PC and Xbox One.
