Ubisoft finally shows us Skull and Bones, and it just makes me want to play Sea of ​​Thieves

After years of waiting, Ubisoft’s open-world game of high seas piracy Skull and Bones (opens in new tab) is just about ready to set sail. We got our first proper look at it during today’s Ubisoft Forward event, and more importantly we have a release date too: November 8 is when it finally arrives.

Skull and Bones is set in the Indian Ocean at the end of the 17th century, during the so-called Golden Age of Piracy. From humble beginnings at a small pirate outpost, players will set out to build their empires and legends by taking contracts, earning treasure, and expanding their fleets in “visceral, fast-paced, rewarding” PvE and optional PvP combat, according to Ubisoft. The only currency that really matters, though, is reputation: As a player’s infamy grows, access to new ships, weapons, armor, and other equipment will become available, as will more lucrative—and more dangerous—opportunities.
