Yo Ho Yo Ho where be me bottle of rum ye Scurvy land lover. Though the seas are rough, being a pirate has had some of the worst rough patches. Who at some point has not had dreams of being a pirate looting, plundering, and pillaging? Now Ubisoft has given gamers a chance to delve into the world of a pirate! Pirates have been touched on lightly in other games but left us wanting for more. Much like the salty waves, our salty tears wet our cheeks waiting on such a game.
During Ubisoft’s press event we were immersed into a pirates bloody brawl to overthrow the deadly seas. As if Ubisoft heard the collective cry of fans looking for a game to throw you into a pirate’s life. First glimpse showed us epic battles that would pit many different vessels against each other. In a 5 Vs.5 battle you will learn the in’s and out’s of your ship, sure weapons are of importance. Of more importance is how your ship will handle, how will you defeat enemies to claim the glory and the gold.
Ships will range from straight up brawlers to faster more agile ships that can attack but not defend as easy. Slowly you will learn how to control both your ship’s movement as well as how to line up weapons. Massive damage will in time give players a chance to board enemy ships to take them on as their own. Skull and Bones will be available Fall of 2018 for Playstation, Xbox, and PC!
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.
