News | Skull and Bones launch trailer released

Ubisoft has published the launch trailer for their pirate adventure Skull and Bones.

Skull and Bones has players sailing the ocean as pirates, where the goal is to build a bigger ship and a fearsome reputation. The emphasis is on multiplayer gameplay. The game was announced in 2017 but has since been postponed several times. The game will be released on February 16 for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and S, although people who purchase the special editions can get started three days earlier.

An open beta for the game started last night on the above platforms. “Explore the Red Isle, the coast of Africa, the high seas and the Indies throughout this open beta, and peacefully encounter or attack the various in-game factions.” During the beta, players can complete all campaign contracts up to the mission ‘Exterminate the Rat’. Special rewards can be unlocked in the process. Progress made can be carried over to the full game.
