Skull and Bones is an open-world multiplayer pirate game, and it was first announced during the Ubisoft press conference at E3 2017. It has been in development for almost a decade, and we still remember our time with the game during E3 2018. (Speaking of which, E3 will be returning in person in 2023.) Today, it was announced that Skull and Bones will be released on November 8, 2022 during Ubisoft Forward Spotlight.

Skull and Bones will feature cross-play and cross-progression, and it will be available in the fall on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Stadia, and PC via Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store. The game is being developed by Ubisoft Singapore in collaboration with other Ubisoft studios, and it will feature survival elements and players getting to become a pirate kingpin through naval combat, expeditions, contracts, and resources.

Players will be able to join forces with up to 2 other friends or players, and PvP can even be enabled where players can test their skills against other aspiring kingpins, big organizations, local factions, and rival pirates.

Ubisoft has a free multi-year post-launch plan that will include new content, activities, stories, and challenges.

Synopsis: The game is inspired by one of the deadliest periods in history – the end of the 17th century. Considered to be the second Golden Age of Piracy, it sets the stage for a chaotic and ruthless era of pirates, warring factions, powerful organizations and empires all vying for power in the untamed paradise of the Indian Ocean.

Skull and Bones will be available in two editions, Standard and Premium. The game will be released on November 8, 2022 on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Stadia, Amazon Luna, and PC via Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store.

The Premium Edition includes “The Ballad of Bloody Bones Collection”, including a range of cosmetics items for both Captain and Ships, and additional digital content, including two extra missions, a digital Art Book, Soundtrack, and a “Smuggler Pass” Token.

Those who pre-order Skull and Bones will have access to the “Highness of the High Sea Pack,” which includes the “Notoriety Garb Captain Outfit” and “Coronation Firework”.
