‘Skull and Bones’ Release Date, Platforms & Game Length

Skull and Bones

Ahoy me hearties! If you’re a fan of the sea-based missions in Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag, you’re going to want to play Ubisoft’s Skull and Bones when it steps off the plank and into our gaming stores in February. 

In this game, you will customize your ship, explore the open seas, and engage with other boats in naval combat. This action RPG allows you to play by your own rules as you rise the ranks from being a nobody to a fearsome pirate kingpin. Opposing pirate hunters aren’t the only obstacles you need to worry about on your journey to the top as you also have to handle dangerous rogue waves, unpredictable weather, and deadly wildlife.
