The multiplayer pirate game has already had a couple of closed betas, and we were just recently promised an open beta that anybody could play, but unfortunately, you may join up for the upcoming Skull and Bones closed beta test here.

While no new gameplay was shown at the Ubisoft Forward event, cinematics featuring pirates sailing and engaging in a brief ship battle was showcased, creating anticipation for the closed beta.

What do we know about the Skull and Bones game?

Ubisoft’s highly-anticipated pirate-themed RPG adventure, Skull & Bones, has been a source of excitement and frustration for fans due to its numerous delays. However, it seems that the game is finally back on track and is expected to be released by the end of 2023 or the beginning of 2024.

In Skull & Bones, players have the opportunity to create their pirate character and navigate the treacherous seas, managing their crew, looting resources, crafting gear, and sailing formidable ships.

Skull & Bones offer players the chance to earn respect and become a legendary pirate. By completing contracts, plundering islands, and participating in events, players can rise through the ranks and establish their reputation as the scourge of the Indian Ocean.

The game features third-person tactical gameplay in an open-world environment, allowing players to explore the vast seas as a single-player or team up with friends for intense PvP combat in the Disputed Waters area of the map. With crossplay support, players can face off against each other online, creating an immersive and dynamic pirate experience.

While the lack of a release date or gameplay footage has been disappointing, the announcement of the next closed beta and the upcoming release window provide hope that the game is making strides toward completion.
