Skull and Bones: Free Week for Ubisoft’s Pirate Game [VIDEO]

If you don’t want to spend $70 on Skull and Bones, a game that went through development hell, you can play it for free for a week, and Ubisoft will be able to loudly advertise how many people are playing it.


Skull and Bones is the kind of game that makes most people wonder what the point is. After all, Rare released a similar game many years ago, Sea of Thieves has since gone multiplatform, and we’ve written that Microsoft’s former Xbox exclusive was a big hit on PlayStation 5. Two similar games don’t make much sense, even if there isn’t a game like them. (And they both use a live service model.)

The free week for Skull and Bones starts with the preload, so those with slower internet connections may be blessed with the preload, which starts at 6pm on May 28th in Europe on PlayStation 5 and PC on the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Connect. The free week will begin on May 30 at 6 p.m. (PC – Epic Games Store, Ubisoft Connect) or 7 p.m. (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series) and end on June 6 at 9 a.m. (Xbox Series) or 2 p.m. (PlayStation 5, PC – Epic Games Store, Ubisoft Connect).

We can transfer our results to the game if we buy it, and there will be no content limit. The second season of Skull and Bones will also launch at the same time, so Ubisoft is obviously trying to attract players. New enemies, quests, ships, weapons, sea monsters, game modes and events are in store for the new season, in addition to bug fixes and gameplay tweaks.

Ubisoft is optimistic, of course, because according to their financial report, Skull and Bones averaged four hours of play per day in the weeks following its release, the second best result among the French publisher’s products. In other words, it has managed to keep players engaged so far.
