Yesterday’s Ubisoft Forward was filled with new information about all the next projects coming our way from the developers. While Assassin’s Creed‘s future announcements were the highlight of the show, Skull and Bones got two new trailers as well.
Interestingly, the game was supposed to come out 5 years ago. But huge delays almost caused cancellation until Ubisoft announced a solid release for this year. We already know quite a bit about the game as of now, the trailers showcase more gameplay and world context.
New Skull and Bones Trailers
The new trailers primarily focus on showcasing more about the world and gameplay experience. The first trailer shows off the pirate-inhibited sea world while the other one showcases more in-game footage.
The gameplay trailer shows the ship customization in Skull and Bones. We got a glimpse of the ship customization systems at Ubisoft Forward 2022, which included weapons, ship armor that resists various damage types, and cosmetic changes like paint, sails, and other accessories.
Whether you’re searching for mobility, power, or cargo capacity, each ship has its own features. Also, every ship can be fitted with all the arsenal and cosmetic items. This however depends on how you customize it as the options are numerous. There’s also the fact that certain items will be helpful against certain ammunition and other stuff, so customizing your ship accordingly will be a massive part of the game.
World Context Trailer
Skull and Bones happen around the end of the 17th century. The world context trailer states that war around global supremacy was at its peak around that time and organizations fought for it. Some lost exotic goods from the Indian Ocean lead to another conflict that formulates a group of pirates.
In the game, you will be your own pirate sailing through the oceans creating your own legacy. It will be up to you to retrieve all the lost treasure and battle other pirates on the way to supremacy.
More About Skull and Bones
Ubisoft’s open-world pirate game is primarily built to be played as a multiplayer game. However, there will be a single-player mode too. The unfortunate part is that you can’t keep your multiplayer and single-player progress apart as they will be unified.
Skull and Bones is set to launch on November 8, 2022, which is a challenging date as the very next day God of War: Ragnarok releases. It’ll be really interesting to see if Ubisoft can make the actual game live up to the hype they’ve created. It will launch on Windows, Stadia, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S.
