Skull and Bones Sets Sail; Free Trial Available

Ubisoft announces the full availability of Skull and Bones, launching the pirate adventure for PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. This is a day some thought might never arrive after all the delays following the game's announcement in 2017 for a 2018 launch. There's a Standard Edition and a Premium Edition, and access to the Premium Edition is included with a Ubisoft+ subscription. There is the chance to sample the game for free through a trial version that permits up to eight hours of play. The note about the free trial says it's for this weekend, but also says the offer expires on 1/1/2300, in which case Bones McCoy may end up checking out Skull and Bones. The previously released Launch Trailer shows how you can make your bones as a pirate. Here's what this brings to the boarding party:
ENGAGE IN THRILLING NAVAL COMBAT
Sail the lawless seas solo or team up with two other players to partake in shareable contracts and rewards.

CUSTOMIZE YOUR SHIP TO MATCH YOUR PLAYSTYLE
Craft and sail up to 10 different ships at launch, each with unique perks to match your own personal playstyle.

BECOME THE MOST INFAMOUS PIRATE KING
Face cutthroat pirate hunters, deadly sea monsters, unpredictable weather, dangerous rogue waves, supernatural threats, and more as you explore a vast open world.

I hope there is eventual a demo, or free weekend. I downloaded the bata, started with a scripted fight, then me on a raft, something about we need to check the dead body's, but i never found them, because after 20 minutes server maintenance or whatever.

Bro?!? This newsbit that you are commenting on here actually mentions a free trial so whatcha waitin' for? You can grab the free trial from Ubi Connect and try the game for free for eight hours. Eight hours should hopefully be enough to go and find your dead bodies... unless you fall asleep from all the suck and miss it again!

P.S.: That scripted sea fight at the start is the dumbest and lamest beginning of a game that I have seen in a long, long time. First, it is generally dumb when a game throws you into the middle of a huge fight at the very beginning because maybe you want to get accustomed to the controls first or check out what the performance is like etc.? Hm, Ubi? How about that?

And secondly, the game is supposed to be all about being a pirate, owning a ship (or ships) and hopefully about going through many an epic sea battle, right? So, how stupid is it to get thrown into a fucking scripted sea fight that is totally unrealistic, plays like some arcade shit version of Black Flag and that you can not win or escape from because the game does not even register your hits as hits? The whole sea fight feels like one big SUCK.
To add insult to injury, if you navigate only a little bit away from the enemy ships, you get the good old "return to the battlefield or else..." message which really adds to the immersion BIG time.
What the actual fuck were they thinking at UbiSoft??? Scratch that... was anyone even thinking at all at UbiSoft when they came up with that crap? Rhetorical question. The answer is a resounding NOPE. They intellectually went full amoeba on this one.
