Gamescom, the largest video game event in the world, is here and with it are a lot of video game announcements. We’ve seen new trailers for Hogwarts Legacy, Killer Klowns from Outer Space: The Game, Dead Island 2 and more. Today, Ubisoft is joining in on the fun with announcements for its upcoming pirate game, Skull and Bones, including PC features and anti-cheat software.

Skull and Bones is inspired by the Indian Ocean during the Golden Age of Piracy where players embark on an adventure in the huge open-sea world as they become the king of the seas.

The PC version of the game will have the following graphics settings:

  • 4K HDR: To be fully immersed in the gameplay experience
  • Uncapped FPS: To give players a higher potential for reducing input lag during naval battles
  • Image upscaling: To offer premium quality images and detailed gameplay through ray tracing, DLSS and FSR
  • Complete customization: to change options in the advanced input settings to create a close-to-perfect experience

Players can play by themselves, but it’s recommended by Ubisoft that they play with up to two other friends or players.

Here’s a list from Ubisoft that details the Skull and Bones online experience:

  • Player tooling: A balanced matchmaking system to hop into Skull & Bones world. Players will be placed into servers based on their Infamy level and PvP preference. Players can also report or block others for disruptive behavior in the game.
  • Game servers: Powerful physical servers with modular redundancy and cloud servers complement one another during spikes of high activity to limit wait times. Ubisoft dedicated server sites in North and South America, Europe, Asia, South Africa, and Oceania.
  • Anti-cheat solutions: BattlEye monitors the game in real-time. It permanently bans players on the first offense if any cheats have been deployed and detected to gain an unfair advantage.

Ubisoft will also reveal full technical details during the week of Gamescom.

Skull and Bones will be available on November 8 on Xbox Series X | S, PlayStation 5, Stadia, and PC through the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games Store.
