Ahoy there pirates!

For those of you who have questions, or those of you who are wondering what a Pioneer is, here’s what you need to know!

Who are the Pioneers?
The Sea of Thieves Pioneers are a select group of players who receive special previews of upcoming features and improvements to the game. Invites cannot be requested and are non-transferable.

How often will they play?
We aim to have weekly sessions and there may be times where there are multiple sessions in one week.

I was a Pioneer before, but now I'm not, why?
As part of the refresh to the Pioneer Programme, we've amended the Pioneer criteria. As a result, some previous Pioneers are currently ineligible. Don't worry though, the Pioneer Programme will continue to grow alongside the game, so there's plenty more opportunities to be invited to the programme!

Will you be inviting new Pioneers?
Yes! We are always on the look out for more dedicated players to invite to the programme.

Can I watch a Pioneer session?
The Pioneer Programme is under NDA, and no streams are allowed.

How do I report a NDA breach?

Please report any NDA breaches with a support ticket so that we can take any appropriate actions

If you cannot raise a ticket for any reason, please inform one of the Forum moderators via DM.

What happens to a Pioneer that breaks the NDA?
Any Pioneers found breaking the NDA will be removed from the programme.

Do not post photos, videos, or audio recordings of the Game on any venue. This also includes the Pioneer Programme Forum.
Do not describe any part of the Game on any venue unless we’ve instructed you to.
Do not allow others to watch you play the Game.
Do not leave the Game running unattended.
