We thought that Ubisoft didn’t listen, but they did.
Sailing and sea fights were the best parts of Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag and many players thought that using those modes for a stand-alone game would be a great idea. Well, now we know that Ubisoft thought so to. Here’s Skull & Bones!
Skull & Bones is a multiplayer, PvP and PvE game set during the Golden Age of Piracy in the Indian Ocean. It is developed by Ubisoft Singapore. The developers said that after the positive reception of the sea-faring sequences in the Black Flag, the company toyed with the idea of an Assassin’s Creed seaship multiplayer mode but thought in the end that a new IP would be a much better idea. It is.
The players will be able to customize their captains, crew as well as build deadly ships. There will be various mode in the game, including co-operative ones, but there is always a risk of a friend trying to rob you of your loot. You are pirates, after all.
Skull & Bones will launch in fall 2018 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, we hope. There’s a beta incoming, so you can try and have an earlier go at the new Ubisoft pirate adventure.
