E3 2018: Skull & Bones Beta Registration Now Open
Set sail for the beta!
We got a more in depth look at Skull & Bones during Ubisoft's E3 press conference. Trailers highlighted the game's setting, the peak of the age of piracy, and the gameplay, player-vs-player-vs-environment combat.
After the conference, Ubisoft announced that Skull and Bones would be getting a beta. Registration opened June 11. Gamers who successfully register for the beta will be the first to play Skull & Bones, and have the chance to test the effectiveness of different strategies upon the open sea.
Skull and Bones is an open world adventure where players set sail in hopes of pillaging loot to buy stronger warships. Pretty much every aspect of each pirate ship can be customized, from the type of cannons to the number of crew members. Players can extend this freedom to customize almost every aspect of their Skull and Bones experience in order to outfit the perfect ship for sailing the high seas. Once on the ocean, the game pits player against player, while also offering the chance for players to team up against more powerful NPC threats.
