Skull and Bones is an upcoming action & adventure title that was inspired by the Golden Age of Piracy. There are some games out there which allow the gamer to release their inner pirate, so why should we care about this Ubisoft original title?
For starters, the game looks incredible!
- Made by Ubisoft
- PvE or PvEvP
- Ship customization
- Graphically pleasing
- 2 buddy passes to invite your friend for a free trial
Made by Ubisoft
Ubisoft has released a game or two that was not quite optimized for gameplay. Siege is a great example of what I am talking about. The game released with some criticism but was able to rise to high levels of excellence. I do expect this game to need some polish upon release as we are having to get used to that in the new era of gaming. Ubisoft does work diligently to improve their games.
PvE or PvEvP
There are a couple of piracy themed games available on all platforms. One of the bigger issues with these games is appealing to those who do not seek player versus player experiences. Skull and Bones will appease those with its handling of PvE and PvEvP modes that will be available to all.
12 different types of ships will be in the initial release of the game. This is a very exciting concept as we keep a close eye on the exact customization news. I am mostly interested in seeing the depth of customization that is going to roll out upon release. A mixture of weapon types that are optimized for varying levels of piracy will be key. I also want to see many cosmetic options available!
We haven’t seen an incredible amount of what we are getting at launch; however, the little we have seen looks quite incredible! Ubisoft does not typically struggle in the nice-looking game department. I have no reason to suspect this will change with Skull & Bones.
Ubisoft is allowing anyone who bought the game to hand out up to 2 buddy passes. These will allow the owner of the game to let their friends try out the game for a limited time.
