Ubisoft is looking to make pirates of us all with the announcement and reveal of their new IP, Skull & Bones. The game puts you in the shoes of pirates and allows you to team up with friends to become the most feared presence on the ocean.
They also released the first multiplayer footage featuring 5vs5 PvP which you can check out below:
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.
