After a very long wait, Ubisoft has finally announced that the upcoming pirate-themed action-adventure game Skull and Bones will launch on November 8 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store, Stadia, and Luna. In addition, a new cinematic trailer and gameplay overview trailer was also released. In Skull and Bones, players will go on naval adventures solo or with a team of up with two friends garnering pirate infamy, crafting ships, and fighting PVP and PVE battles.
The game’s details via Ubisoft can be seen below:
Players will start with naught but their wits and a rickety little sailboat. As they gather resources, they’ll unlock blueprints that will let them craft new and bigger ships, upgrades, weapons, and tools, all of which are essential for growing their reputations and expanding their piratical possibilities. To further build their fleet and gain access to even more resources and upgrades, players must grow their Infamy by completing contracts from vendors, local factions, and kingpins throughout the world. Players can also identify new opportunities by scouting the seas with captain’s tools such as the spyglass, which can spot trade routes and wealthy merchant ships, or scope out enemy weaknesses for the best plan of attack.
Naval combat is a core feature of Skull and Bones, and you’ll be able to customize your approach depending on your preferred playstyle. There are 12 different ship options in the game, each with different stats for speed, capacity, and hit points. Additionally, each ship has unique perks that further allow players to customize their experience. Ships can be equipped with armor and a number of deadly weapons, like cannons, mortars, ballistae, torpedoes, and more.
