Ubisoft Announces Skull & Bones, a New Pirate Adventure

Ubisoft unveiled a new IP called Skull and Bones during its presentation at E3 2017.

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag was a pretty OK AssCreed game wrapped around an utterly wonderful pirate game.

The video below goes into detail as to what gamers can expect from Skull and Bones, as well as who the game is actually for. SKULL & BONES will launch in fall 2018 for the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One, Xbox One S and Xbox One X, PlayStation®4 Pro computer entertainment system, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC. The game is a multiplayer-focused game that sees teams of players battling each other on the open seas as they try to steal each other's booty. Ubisoft showed some pre-alpha Skull & Bones gameplay, in which two fleets of pirate ships fought each other to collect sunken treasure gathered around the map.

Sessions has been dogged by questions about possible additional encounters with the ambassador, Sergey Kislyak. Members of the Appropriations Committee were none too happy with Sessions' decision.

It's an online PvP naval open world game set during the Golden Age of Piracy in the exotic and untamed frontier of the Indian Ocean.

Justin Farren, creative director for Skull & Bones, said the average life of a pirate was just a few months, since the life was so unsafe. Colonial Empires, Trading Companies, and Pirate Gangs all want to control the waters. Below you can have a look at the Cinematic trailer of the game.

In this game, you can also customize your pirate experience by simply recruiting the best crew for your ship. You can either collaborate with friends or even execute ruthless betrayals as you play the game. Recognizable elements from Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, such as the battering rams, were on show, but players must now take account of new dynamic factors such as wind or, yes, deep sea monsters like Kraken. From sharpshooter to frigate, players will pick their ships the same way they choose different classes in an RPG.
