After many years of sailing the uncertain seas of development, the pirate-themed naval adventure from Ubisoft is, finally, actually coming.

If you remember playing Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag and thinking “gosh, I wish the sailing was its own game”, you’re in luck, because Skull & Bones is aiming for that exact idea. It’s bringing highly customizable ships, dramatic and spectacular naval battles, and a chance to play with your friends in co-op.

To be fair, though. friends and fun are all good, but your most precious resource will actually be reputation, unlocking access to more customizations, gear, and higher-risk contracts to take on for glory and gold.

Skull and Bones is scheduled to launch on February 16, 2024, if the weather allows, so you have some time yet to abandon your landlubber manners and prepare to shiver your timbers aboard a mighty vessel.
