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.

The beta was interesting, but honestly repetitive, and just couldn't see playing this long term.


My sentiments exactly. After an hour or so I got bored, left, and uninstalled it. I said this from the outset. It was great, as part of the narrative, in Black Flag, but as an entire game? Um no. And they want $80 CDN for it? Lol! Yeah, good luck with that. Even F2P with micro's I wouldn't bother. I don't understand who at Ubisoft could have possibly thought this was a good idea.
"The pirate part of AC Black Flag is so good!" Is where the idea came from. On its face it's not a bad idea, but you still have to flesh it out and create a complete and interesting game. Sounds like they didn't. Given how important cosmetics would be in a multiplayer pirate game, probably F2P would have been the way to go.
If Russia stops fighting, the war ends. If Ukraine stops fighting, Ukraine ends. Slava Ukraini!
