Ubisoft has unveiled an unexpected new franchise as a part of its E3 2017 press conference – a multiplayer-centric pirate experience titled "Skull and Bones."
Inspired by the same tech that powered 2014's "Assassin's Creed: Black Flag, Skull and Bones' gameplay pits players against one another in ship-to-ship pirate combat. Throughout the game, you'll be working as a team to build a fleet, ambush enemies and as expected in any pirate game – search for precious loot. However, unlike Ubisoft's previous pirate endeavors – Skull and Bones relies heavily on its multiplayer slant.
While it's easy to draw comparisons to Rare's upcoming Xbox exclusive, Sea of Thieves, today's demo set the stage for a much more serious tone. With notable physics, destruction, and overall outstanding presentation, the game could shape up to be an interesting addition to the publisher's lineup. Skull and Bones is currently on track to release toward the end of 2018.
