‘Skull & Bones’ is the PvP pirate fighting game from Ubisoft you wanted
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag was a pretty OK AssCreed game wrapped around an utterly amazing pirate game. Skull & Bones is the next natural step.
Our first look, during Ubi’s E3 2017 briefing, showed off a team-based multiplayer mode in which different kinds of pirate ships fired cannonballs back and forth. If you played Black Flag, this should be immediately familiar. There’s probably a bunch of little differences that only become clear as you play, but on the face of things… we’ve seen this before.
Not that that’s a bad thing! The world could use more pirate games, and this one looks strikingly different. It seems there might be more going on than just PvP as well, so stay tuned. For now, check out some gameplay up top and a trailer down below.
