From accepting contracts, gathering resources, to navigating important trade routes and attacking wealthy merchant ships, each decision will influence the journey.
Players can expand their empire by joining forces with up to 2 other friends or players they encounter out at sea. For additional challenge, they can enable PVP and test their iron against aspiring kingpins, powerful organizations, local factions, or even rival pirates.
Fans who pre-order Skull and Bones will get access to the “Highness of the High Sea Pack” which includes the “Notoriety Garb Captain Outfit” and “Coronation Firework”.
Skull and Bones will be available on November 8, 2022 in two editions, Standard and Premium, on PS5, Xbox X|S, and Windows PC through the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store, Stadia and Amazon Luna. The Premium Edition will include "The Ballad of Bloody Bones Collection", including a range of cosmetics items for both Captain and Ships, and additional digital content, including two extra missions, a digital Art Book and Soundtrack as well as a "Smuggler Pass" Token.
