Among the Ubisoft E3 Presser, a new title was revealed born from Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag‘s naval battles: Skull & Bones.
Skull & Bones casts players as pirates in the Indian Ocean as they seek to plunder and pillage other ships on the open sea. Developed by Ubisoft’s Singapore studio, this new pirate title will have players fighting colonial empires, other pirate factions, and trading corporations looking to protect shipments. A five versus five multiplayer mode was shown on stage, where players must utilize different classes of ships to secure loot while also dealing blows to rival pirate players attempting to do the same.
Skull & Bones will be releasing in the Fall of 2018 on PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One X, and Windows PC’s.
