For those who have been waiting impatiently for its release, Ubisoft has announced that Skull & Bones will be available on November 8th for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One S, Google Stadia, and PC via the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft store.
Despite being formally revealed in 2017, Skull & Bones had been in development for several years prior to that.
After missing its initial 2018 release schedule and every consecutive year after that until now, Skull & Bones, which is based on the naval battle in Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, has finally been released after multiple delays.
Players in Skull & Bones take control of their own crew of pirates. Acquire contracts, gain resources, and explore the high seas, all the while attacking merchant ships in search of valuables to trade for yourself. As you progress through the pirate ranks, you’ll be able to unlock new customization options for your ships.
The game is set in the second Golden Age of Piracy and allows players to team up with up to two pals and engage in PvP battles on the open seas.
Upon the game’s release, Ubisoft promises a long-term post-launch roadmap filled with free content updates, activities, storylines, and challenges.
Skull and Bones Release Date
The release date of Skull & Bones has yet to be announced. Skull & Bones will be available on DVD and Blu-ray starting on November 8, 2022.
On July 7, 2022, Ubisoft confirmed the news in the game’s Ubisoft Forward.
Regular updates are planned long after the initial release of Skull & Bones, making it a live-service game in the truest sense of the word. The only content that will be charged for is purely aesthetic in nature.
In addition to the release date, the Skull & Bones display revealed a great deal of additional information. Due to the emphasis on ships in the game, no one will be fighting another player face to face. NPC crewmates raid outposts and board other ships, and you won’t be leaving your ship until you reach another pirate hideout.
Players can choose from three different types of ships: cargo vessels with more storage, navigation vessels with superior speed, and firepower vessels designed for conflict.
Infamy is a term used to describe a player’s in-game experience. Contracts can be taken on by a player who is more well-known, and they have access to more ships and equipment in the process.
Skull & Bones’ NPC privateer pirate-hunters will pursue you with greater ferocity if your notoriety rises, so be prepared for that.
