Ubisoft’s Skull and Bones Release Date Revealed, Open Beta on February 8

Ubisoft has announced that Skull and Bones is scheduled to release on February 16, 2024, for PS5, Xbox Series, and PC, with cross-play and cross-progression support.

A Skull and Bones Open Beta will be available from February 8 – 11, allowing players to reach the Infamy Cap of Tier 6 and earn up to 5 exclusive rewards, including unique ship cosmetics, emotes, weapons, and Pandal Lemur pet. Any progress made will carry over to the main game when it launches.

Additionally, a new trailer was unveiled for Skull and Bones, outlining the endgame and Year 1 Roadmap and promising robust post-launch support for this upcoming title.

Here’s what players can expect from the Skull and Bones Year 1 Roadmap:

Players will embark on a perilous journey facing Legendary Pirate Lords like Philippe La Peste and the Hubac Twins. Stirred into a feeding frenzy, players will have to strategize and defeat these new threats, each escalating in difficulty. Strategic ship loadouts and seasonal ships and gear will be key to taking them down in the final showdown at the end of each season. Prepare to expand and defend your empire by looting stronger equipment and valuable resources through new world events introduced each season. Face Merchant Convoys, Elite Warships, and other predators on the high seas. Bigger challenges bring greater rewards as you navigate these dynamic and unpredictable waters.

Discover the intense endgame of Skull and Bones, where you’ll face more dangerous challenges, higher stakes, and alliances that can transform into rivalries. Transition from working with Kingpins to becoming their rivals, facing the perilous consequences of the treacherous pirate life. Seize control of The Helm, an unrivaled smuggling colossus, and build your smuggling empire. Control manufactories across the Indian Ocean, increase profits through strategic control of trade routes, and invest in upgrades for your operations. On top of these, Legendary Heists and Hostile Takeovers activities also add thrilling twists to empire-building, with new end game features introduced each season.

Engage in precarious PvP activities with high-risk, high-reward Helm Wagers and Cutthroat Cargo. Accept challenges and legendary treasure maps, which will put a literal target on your head until you reach the target outpost. Rise to the top, and solidify your reputation amongst Kingpins, earning rewards based on your leaderboard placement. Participate in free time-limited events each season, collaborate with fellow pirates, complete exclusive community events, and claim treasure troves of loot. The leaderboard resets each season with new rewards, encouraging players to continually strive for the top.
