Ubisoft's New IP Skull & Bones Shows Gameplay Glimpses in New Video

Ubisoft's upcoming pirate game Skull & Bones looks hectic and fun in a new video showing developers battling each other.

August 15, 2017

Today Ubisoft released a new video of its upcoming pirate-based new IP Skull & Bones, that was recently revealed at E3 2017.

Interestingly, the video showcases a series of matches pitching the team working on the game at Ubisoft Singapore against developers who worked on Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, that was a source of inspiration for the new IP.

More importantly, we get to see quite a few glimpses on actual gameplay, and while they’re filmed from the screen, and not a direct feed recording, they give a welcome further look on the title.

You can check out the video below, and if you want to see more, you can also enjoy screenshots and artwork from E3, the cinematic trailer and the first multiplayer gameplay video.


Ubisoft also recently disclosed that the game received “very positive” reactions from players at E3 2017, with registrations for the first beta phases at record level for a new IP by the publisher.

You can also read more on how the company plans to turn the game into a long-term experience, and more information on its single player campaign.

Skull & Bones will reease in the fall of 2018 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
