Tucked inside Ubisoft’s blockbuster E3 2017 press conference was an all-new IP - Skull & Bones. Ubisoft’s Skull and Bones is a PvP centric online naval action game in which teams of pirates square off against one another in huge battles. Players can choose from and customise a variety of pirate ships before heading out onto the high seas.
Ubisoft stumbled on the idea as an extension of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’s naval combat, taking players to the Indian Ocean for frantic naval battles alongside players and AI pirate hunters.
Skull & Bones is due to launch in Autumn 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
