Skull & Bones is a tactical action game developed by Shanghai division of Ubisoft. The title was developed for Xbox One and it enables the player to assume the role of a beginner pirate who tries to become wealthy and famous. The developers previously worked on the sea battles module in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and decided to use that experience to create a completely new franchise. Skull & Bones combines a large, open world with emphasis on multiplayer.

Mechanics

The game takes place during the golden age of piracy, on the waters of Indian Ocean. In Skull & Bones for Xbox One the player assumes the role of a corsair commanding his ship. By winning in sea battles he gradually builds his reputation and gathers more loot. At the beginning the player has only a single ship, but as he progresses through the game he amasses an entire fleet. The ships are of varied classes that differ in agility, range and durability. Each ship can be also equipped with additional parts that increase their combat effectiveness or change their look.

During the battles in Skull & Bones it is important to know how to take advantage of water currents and wind, to cooperate with partners and to properly choose tactics. It is also important to select a ship class adequate to the type of task the player intends to complete. In addition to ranged combat, the game features option to ram other ships or to perform boarding. The latter requires the player to position his ship correctly and to time his actions, but a success provides an opportunity to repair some damage.

Game modes

Skull & Bones for Xbox One is a game set in open world in which the player can fight both artificial intelligence and other players. Among the multiplayer modes there is Loot Hunt in which two teams consisting of five ships fight for the loot gathered by the opponent. Gaining advantage over the opponent doesn’t guarantee victory as the player can encounter powerful, very resistant ships of the pirate hunters – in that case he should quickly escape. The players can create teams with their friends and together they can hunt for loot or even betray and steal from each other.
