Ubisoft and Ubisoft Singapore have announced that the highly anticipated pirate-themed video game, Skull and Bones, will launch on February 16, 2024, for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC (Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store), and Luna. The game’s second closed beta test will take place from December 15 to 18, 2023, offering new opportunities and challenges for players. Skull and Bones promises a unique pirate experience where players, as notorious pirate captains, will confront the powers of the oceans and other players.
Skull and Bones is a groundbreaking video game that transports players into the world of the Golden Age pirates. Developed by Ubisoft and Ubisoft Singapore, the game is set in a stunning open world, where players sail from the Caribbean to the exotic and untamed waters of the Indian Ocean to rise among the greatest pirate captains. The game combines unique RPG elements, allowing players to shape their own pirate captain and customize and upgrade their ships to their liking. In the game, seizing trade routes and defeating rival pirate captains, memorable characters, or other players is crucial.
Skull and Bones redefines naval combat with an innovative naval combat system designed by Ubisoft Singapore for the Assassin’s Creed series. Players can navigate faster, shoot from a distance, strike harder, evade deadly blows, and position themselves to defeat their foes by exploiting the wind system. The game offers the chance to plunder trade routes either solo or in co-op mode, facing the consequences of their actions.
Intense multiplayer action is a standout feature of the game, where players can test their strength in five-versus-five battles with rival pirate gangs, and plunder the most valuable loot from the rich trade routes of the Indian Ocean. Skull and Bones offers varied game modes in this dynamic environment, where every victory increases the pirate captain’s reputation and the bounty on their head.
Skull and Bones is not just a game, but a world filled with constantly evolving challenges. As players strive for the pinnacle of power, new regions, stronger ships, devastating weapons, and bold enemies await them. Each victory brings them closer to glory and increases the risk they face.
