One of Ubisoft’s biggest surprises from their E3 2017 press conference was their new pirate game – Skull and Bones.
The game is heavily influenced from the naval combat in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, but it is more unique than meets the eye. Players will scour the sea for treasure, compete in online matches, and climb the ranks to become one of the most infamous pirates of all time.
Watch the new cinematic announcement trailer dowd below:

It is the Golden Age of Piracy. Renegade captains command the most powerful weapons on Earth: warships.
