Ubisoft Singapore is developing a brand new IP that takes an almost Black Flag-like approach to multiplayer battles: Skull & Bones. Following the trailer, we were shown the 5v5 battle mode, Loot Hunt. A gang of 5 ships takes on another gang of five to damage their opponents, boards them and steal their booty. At the end of the match, pirate hunters appear and the team in the lead must escape with their treasure (and their lives!).
With development led by Ubisoft Singapore,* Skull & Bones will take gamers to the Golden Age of Piracy where they will create their own unique pirate captains and sail through the beautiful yet treacherous Indian Ocean filled with rich merchant trade routes to loot. Whether it is on their own or as part of a pirate gang, gamers will take the helm of their powerful warship and lead their crew into the endless battle to rule the seas and become the deadliest pirate kingpin.
Skull & Bones is an online naval game that will take players across a dynamic, shared open-ocean that reacts to their actions and evolves to continuously challenge them. Building upon the studio’s naval gameplay expertise, Skull & Bones introduces an innovative wind system that gives gamers tactical opportunities to navigate more quickly, shoot further, hit harder, escape deadly blows, and position themselves to decimate their victims. Gamers will also be able to build their own fleet of ships, which can specialize in different battle conditions using the game’s extensive customization options.
