Since its announcement at E3 2017, Skull and Bones has been one of Ubisoft’s most anticipated titles. Fans were distressed to hear about the naval adventure being delayed until 2019-2020, but the cinematic trailer released during their conference has given us plenty to chew on.
In a time when the world was trying to end piracy, you must use your pirate-y ways to come back stronger than ever, savvy? Skull and Bones’ cinematic trailer depicts the details of the single-player campaign. There seems to be three main pirates, and the Empire is doing their best to destroy their way of life. As the pirates flee to the Indian Ocean, alliances are made (and, probably, broken) as they try to save their way of life.
As the successor to Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, the naval battle are the most prevalent feature in the game. In single-player mode and in five-on-five player-vs-player, ships with battle the Empire, other pirates, and who knows what else in the struggle for survival. Boarding mechanics, further ship customization, and even using your ship to deceive other players were all shown during Ubisoft‘s E3 conference.
As mentioned before, Skull and Bones has yet to get a release date.
