Ubisoft has announced the pirate naval combat game Skull and Bones. The game takes place during the Golden Age of Piracy.
In Skull and Bones, you play as 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.
The game is said to feature a "shared open world" that reacts as you plunder rich trade routes, various customization options, co-op multiplayer functionality and various multiplayer game modes.
Skull and Bones launches in the fall of 2018 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
