Currently under development is the new and highly anticipated pirate adventure Skull & Bones, being created by Ubisoft Singapore and planned for an official launch sometime during 2019. The new pirate adventure will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and will revolve around naval warfare and piracy, offering both single player and multiplayer action. The Skull & Bones game has been inspired by the naval battles of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, check out the cinematic trailer below to learn more about what you can expect from the storyline.
Skull & Bones is set in an open world environment and played from 1/3 person perspective during which players take control of a customisable pirate captain. A single player campaign is available, but captains can team up with five other players to all or engage in combat within the Disputed Waters.
Players may collect additional ships throughout the game, such as sloops-of-war, frigates and brigantines, whose weapons include mortars, broadside cannons, and rockets. Ships can be charged into with brute force and boarded. The rate of inflicted damage is gauged by the health bar. A core component is the multiplayer mode Loot Hunt, where two groups of players are challenged in treasure hunting to further accumulate their riches. Each given ship’s crow’s nest is scalable for use as a lookout point, and spyglasses can be availed of as well.
As soon as Ubisoft announces a confirmed release date, we will keep you up to speed as always but unfortunately expect plenty of Microtransactions to litter the game, as with other Ubisoft titles.
