All Aboard the Sea Of Thieves Insider Program!

Yes, it’s finally happened! The Sea Of Thieves Insider Program has been randomly inviting wannabe pirates into it’s world for the best part of the last year, but now the gangplank has been lowered and everyone can join the party!

Everyone who signs up as an insider before December 1st will be invited into the program and can join the next play session, possibly to stress test the game and servers before its launch in early 2018. The Insider program currently contains over 200,000 pirates and is scheduled to close at the end of December. You can join the program here – https://www.seaofthieves.com/insider – You will need to be over 18 and have Xbox Live in order to participate, and need to sign an NDA before you board your ship.

Xbox Game Capture introduces ability to record in 1080p

In the latest preview build of the Xbox One dashboard, available now to Xbox Insiders in the alpha ring, Microsoft has improved the resolution of Xbox One’s Game DVR feature. It will now capture at 1080p, instead of the previous 720p.

The update also gives the ability to save captured video directly to external hard drives for quick transfer to your PC. External hard drives were previously supported only for games and apps, but this improvement will open up this storage to make it a lot more user friendly.

When the Xbox One X launches in November it will allow exclusive 4K, HDR and 60FPS game capture options.
