Ubisoft also announced today that it will hold a “multi-game showcase” in September, which could used to reveal the future of the Assassin’s Creed series.
Skull & Bones is a “multiplayer first” game set in a world inspired by the Indian Ocean during the golden age of piracy.
According to a video which leaked in April, players begin their journey as an underdog whose goal is to become the most infamous pirate to sail the seas.
They start off with a small dhow (trading vessel), but as they progress and their Infamy level rises, they can craft bigger and stronger ships with unique playstyles.
Players earn Infamy in a variety of ways including taking on contracts, which are deals they make with NPCs in the world, some of which can be shared and completed in a group of up to three players.
Infamy is also rewarded by completing activities such as exploration, plundering and treasure hunts, and by participating in big world events.
Skull & Bones was originally scheduled for release in 2018 but it has been delayed on a handful of occasions and was the project was rebooted in 2020.
The Skull & Bones release date is reportedly set for November 8, 2022, although this has yet to be officially announced.
