You actually don't 'get' a code, your gamertag is assigned the game. You just go to Xbox Insider App (which is used by preview members but everyone can download the app) and it's waiting there to download if chosen from insiders. Once you're in, you're in for good unless actively opt out.

Wrote up my gameplay experience on insider forums on Seaofthieves.com. Easy to find as your forum name is your gamertag.

Ah right well I haven't got that app installed so that's probably why. Assuming I even got selected

I signed up for the email registration but never got anything. Not sure I'd really play it if it was just me and randomers, though. Feels like the kind of game you're better off playing with actual friends, but I guess we'll see.

Apart from visuals what sets this apart from Blackwake? I haven't played it, but it looks like the same thing.

Grcade Crew (partially) assemble!

I think they added Swordfighting, Phil Spencer is at Rare today to see their inhouse build (most likely check out what they doing for E3 also)

Couldn't hook up with monkey but got on at 9:30-11. Had a blast, got over 12k in treasure, had a good crew.

Grcade Crew would be awesome!

For anyone watching the after-conference stream, have they mentioned anything yet about single-player, or any kind of actual plot for the multiplayer yet, or is it literally just "sail from island to island looking for loot to sell for no reason"? There's got to be a reason to play it, right? It looks interesting, but not for any kind of extended period.

The skeleton combat and shooting looked pretty bad tbh.

But the ship-to-ship battle in a storm looked absolutely amazing.

By the way Monkey, it's playable all this week for alpha insiders 6-9pm and 11pm-2am, I think it's the E3 build. I'll be on tomorrow from 7ish if want to get on same ship and get drunk! :)

Their podcast gave hints about bounty hunting AI characters and other bits and bobs, the base game is excellent, if they can make the world sing with a variety of things to do it'll be huge.

They already have specific content to coincide with holidays etc.
