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.

Looks like a $10-15 indie game..

For reference, please find me a $10 indie game that looks like this. Because being a doubter is one thing; but that is ridiculous.

"Graphics aren't everything you noob!!! "

Agreed. But doing an isometric view is way less expensive than graphically what this game is doing. I'm not a fan of Ubisoft at all, but saying shit like this means you didn't think an iota about what you wrote.

Oh, that's alright then, they spent 11 years making a game that looks kinda good! Guess that justifies their self-proclaimed "AAAA title" and "ridiculous" price then....

So yea, i'd buy that for $15... and in a year or two, maybe i will!

p.s. there's plenty of indie games using the UE5 engine, hell, there's even free ones if you can be bothered looking... some of them even have actual combat and realist animations, instead of magical saws and auto win lootboxes

Yeah, definitely looks like it's worth $70:

"I'm not a Ubifangirl, but OMG the purdy water!! Take my money!!! Game of year!!!!"
So instead of understanding why your statement is insane hyperbole, you double down with it, and then decided to attempt to insult someone who correctly called you out for it?

It was clearly a hyperbolic statement, poking fun at the current state of AAA gaming. However, it seems that went unnoticed by you and others who are quick to defend subpar, overpriced games. Nicely done!

Keep up the good fight!
