Ubisoft announces Skull and Bones

 
Ubisoft has announced Skull and Bones, a new piracy game that is based on the popular naval combat mechanics of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.
 
This game is based in the Indian Ocean, where several empires are fighting over the riches of the continent, loading their spoils onto trade ships that are ripe for a' plunderin'. 
 
Skull and Bones will be an online game where friends can take on teams of AI Pirate hunters or duke it out in 5 vs 5 multiplayer matches. Players will be able to choose and customise their own ships, from small sloops to huge frigates. 
 
 

It is the Golden Age of Piracy. Renegade captains command the most powerful weapons on Earth: warships. You are a pirate captain who has refused the king’s pardon and sailed from the Caribbean to the Indian Ocean, an untamed frontier full of lavish riches. However, these waters are also a battleground where far-reaching colonial empires, powerful trading corporations, and ruthless pirate gangs clash.

In order to survive, you will have to build a lethal fleet, prey upon lucrative trade routes, and ally with other pirates in your endless struggle for supremacy.
 

  

 

Skull and bones comes with a much more detailed art style and other modern pirate games like Sea of Thieves and offer a huge increase in visual detail over Assassin's Creed Black Flag, with a much grittier look that is well-suited to the game's  brutal combat. 

 

Skull and Bones will release in Autumn 2018, which will be after next year's E3. The game is expected to be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
