Ubisoft announces a new IP, Skull & Bones – First Details & E3 2017 Gameplay Walkthrough

Ubisoft has just announced a new IP that was inspired by the pirate setting of Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag, Skull & Bones. In Skull & Bones, you are a pirate captain who has refused the king’s pardon and sailed from the Caribbean to the Indian Ocean, an untamed frontier full of lavish riches.

However, these waters are also a battleground where far-reaching colonial empires, powerful trading corporations, and ruthless pirate gangs clash. In order to survive, you will have to build a lethal fleet, prey upon lucrative trade routes, and ally with other pirates in your endless struggle for supremacy.

Here are the game’s key features:

  • Dominate a Dangerous Open Ocean:
    A shared open world that reacts as you plunder rich trade routes
  • Customize Your Pirate Experience:
    Choose your captain, recruit your crew and build deadly ships
  • Naval Combat Redefined:
    Use your weapons, spyglass and even the wind to stalk and destroy your prey
  • Play Solo or Coop:
    Raid the Hunting Grounds alone or group with other players to hunt larger prey
  • Explosive Multiplayer:
    Enter the Disputed Waters and fight for supremacy in a variety of game modes

Skull & Bones is currently planned for an Fall 2018 release.
