Skull & Bones – Long-Delayed Ubisoft Pirate Game Now Opens for Public Testing

Ubisoft is inviting a select number of players to play (and test) its pirate game Skull & Bones.

The new Insider Programme, as spotted by Eurogamer will allow carefully selected players to access an early version of the game to provide feedback to Ubisoft.

This is not the same as a beta where players can play a very early version of the game. Instead, it is more of a quality assurance position where early access testers will work closely to Ubisoft in order to fix any problems.

Anyone can apply for the Insider Programme but only those “dedicated to testing work in progress versions” of Skull & Bones will be admitted. The company stated that they will need patience and commitment, and must follow a non-disclosure agreement and Ubisoft’s code of conduct.

It added in its application form: “Our main objective is to get real data & feedback. We want to see how our players feel when they have the freedom to play our game whenever, wherever and however they choose. We want to hear their opinions about the game.

Ideal candidates, Ubisoft said, must be fans of Skull & Bones and have a keen interest in game development, with plenty of free time to play and give feedback.

Every Ubisoft Game In Development

Skull & Bones was first revealed in 2017 but has since suffered delay after delay. Ubisoft eventually moved it to 2020.

It was made available to the public in alpha form in July after eight years of development. However, Ubisoft again delayed the game until August 2022. Skull & Bones is inching closer to release, it seems, as Ubisoft is now prepared to show it to at least some members of the public.
