Review Skull & Bones : release date, platforms and trailers

Skull & Bones

(Skull & Bones) Surprisingly, there are few games based on pirate battles, Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag and Sea of ​​Thieves are more or less the same for AAA games – so Skull & Bones could come as a much-needed breath of fresh air. 

Long developed by the Assassin’s Creed Naval Combat Team, Skull & Bones is a pirate game that focuses on ship-to-ship naval combat.

First announced in 2017, it has been in development hell for years, and there are still no signs of a firm release date, though the game is rumored to have been completely redesigned and rebuilt since the last time we saw it.

When will Skull & Bones be released?

Although Skull and Bones was originally slated to come out in 2018, the game has been repeatedly delayed and currently has no official release date.

In the meantime, check out all the other massive games you’ll be able to play this year.

What platforms will Skull & Bones be on?

Ubisoft was originally announced for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. By the time it launches, it’s likely to hit PS5, Xbox Series X, and Google Stadia as well, but it’s not official yet.


There is still time to launch, but if you want, you can sign up on their website to receive news about their purchase date.

How to join the Skull & Bones beta

It may take a long time for the game to finally arrive, but you can sign up for the Skull & Bones beta to play the game before its release and even to determine the future of game development. 

To sign up for any of the platforms, just go to the Ubisoft website and enter your details.

There’s no word yet on when the beta will arrive, but we’ll be sure to update this section once we have more to share.

Skull and Bones trailers

First, check out the trailer for the game’s cinematic ad:
Don’t miss the Skull and Bones E3 2017 game trailer below for the multiplayer and PvP action either, though be aware that we hope the end game will look quite different from this:
E3 2018 brought more gameplay material, highlighting the pre-release beta, PvP battles, and more:

Skull & Bones gameplay

Right now we don’t know what to expect from Skull & Bones as a game, because Ubisoft is said to have restarted development entirely, so everything we’ve seen so far could have been completely scrapped.

VGC reports that the game has moved to a “live” model to further distinguish it from other open-world Ubisoft games like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Watch Dogs: Legion.

The game is reportedly inspired by Fortnite, and will feature “a persistent game world with missions, characters, and stories that will evolve and change dramatically over time based on the community’s collective actions.”

This is in contrast to what we were told before, which included a single player campaign and 5v5 multiplayer games called Contested Waters.

What isn’t likely to have changed much is the basics. The game is played in a third person perspective and you will take control of the pirate captain of your choice, which you can then customize.

You can also select the ship class based on your preferred play style and, as with captains, the ship is also customizable. This is not a simple cosmetic personalization like in “Sea of ​​Thieves”.
