However, Microsoft is now opening up its Xbox Live Creators Program to the public, allowing indie game makers to become their own publisher while opening up players to new, creator-driven games on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.

If you're someone that likes to live on the edge, getting a sneak preview at the latest games through closed alphas and betas, jumping into system software updates before they reach general release, then you'll be happy to hear that the Xbox Insider program can now be joined by anyone and everyone with an Xbox One. Omega is outermost ring a user can opt into, earning early access to upcoming system updates.

Now the Xbox Insider Program is split into four rings: Alpha, Beta, Delta, and Omega. One of those gamer feedback oriented programs is the Xbox Insider Program. For those in the Delta ring, some will be selected (randomly it seems) to receive earlier builds than others. Microsoft is trying to simplify entry into the Insider Program through the use of a heirarchical ring program. The rings will enable some flexibility in receiving updates as well.

As we said earlier, the Xbox Insider Team is working closely with multiple 1 party and 3 party game studios to bring you playtests of unreleased games. This spring, Paladins was initially available to Xbox Insiders with an XP level of 10 or higher, then Xbox Insiders with XP level 5, before being released to all Xbox Insiders a few weeks before the game was generally available. If you are concerned about the number of updates or bandwidth issues, you can move to one of the lower levels.

If you are interested in joining the Xbox Insider Program, search the Xbox One Store for "Xbox Insider Hub" and download the app to get started today.
