After the successful launch of Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, with the increase in popularity of Pirate games since then and since Sea of Thieves was announced, Ubisoft was oddly silent about mentioning any sort of pirate themed game or a sequel to Black Flag, but now we know that they were making one, a new IP based on the Pirate theme/world and it’s called Skull & Bones.
It pretty much looks like like a Black Flag sequel, but they’re making it a new IP because I’m presuming that they want to make this a franchise and that they can’t really have a whole bunch of pirate themed games in the Assassin’s Creed franchise.
Regardless, it’s an awesome welcome to have more pirate games, especially one from Ubisoft after they’ve made Black Flag. The game is a third person open world online multiplayer PVP game about kill other players with your swords and guns, as well as destroying their ships with your cannons, but your main objective first and foremost is getting that loot!
Played it? We’d love to know what you thought about it.
