New Open-World Pirate RPG Skull and Bones Out Now

Prepare for swashbuckling adventures on the high seas as Ubisoft’s long-awaited pirate game Skull and Bones is now available. This open-world action RPG lets players embark on exciting maritime quests during the Golden Age of Piracy, and is just one of a number of Triple A titles coming out in early to mid 2024.

Diving Into Dangerous Waters

A Skull and Bones pirate ship

Skull and Bones transports gamers to the perilous waters of the Indian Ocean, where lawless pirates rule the waves. As captains of their own ships, players must sail through largely uncharted territories, avoiding deadly storms and encounters with dangerous factions.

The expansive open world is filled with opportunities for tense naval battles, high-stakes smuggling runs, and other pirate activities.

Skull and Bones Intense Naval Combat

When rival ships appear on the horizon, the cannons start blazing. Skull and Bones features tactical ship-to-ship combat, with players commanding weapons broadsides and avoiding return fire.

Cooperate with up to two other players to face off against heavy enemy forces. With realistic water physics and destructible ships, no two battles play out the same. Victory goes to the captain with the most cunning strategy and steady aim.

As players progress, they establish hideouts across the map and expand their fleets. With greater infamy comes access to larger ships with more firepower.

Customize vessels with different hulls, sails, cannons and more. Recruit crew members with unique skills to give your gang an edge. Take on daring raids and missions to amass loot for upgrading gear. We’ve got a complete rundown of everything coming in the game in 2024 in this post.

Impressive Soundtrack & Visuals

Along with the free-roaming adventures, Skull and Bones treats players to stellar visual presentation. Photo-realistic waterscapes and dynamic weather effects make sailing through the Indian Ocean all the more immersive.

The compelling soundtrack mixes orchestral scores and pirate shanties to capture the romanticism of seafaring outlaws.
