In the years following its unveiling at E3, Ubisoft Singapore’s Skull & Bones has faced several delays, production difficulties, and claims of mismanagement. The developer has recently apologized. It appears to be on pace, as seen by the recent Insider Program, which allowed participants to experience a beta version of the game. Six minutes of alpha gameplay have leaked online, courtesy of Reddit user Weslam L. It’s unclear whether this is from the same build as the previous leak.
A prominent theme of Skull & Bones is the player’s desire to rise through the ranks of pirate, beginning with a small commerce ship and working their way up from there. Accepting contracts from NPCs will help you gain more Infamy, which will allow you to build larger, more deadly ships. These contracts can be completed with a group of up to three people, while other activities such as exploration, treasure hunting, and global events will also net you Infamy.
Overall, it appears that the current version is mostly concerned with naval battles. The only thing we can do now is to wait and see whether there is anything else on the table. Insider According to Tom Henderson, Ubisoft is preparing announcements for approximately 20 titles, with Skull & Bones being one of them, according to Tom Henderson. According to reports, the publisher is “very pleased” with the aesthetic direction of the game as well as the work made thus far, and the game is expected to be released in April 2023.
