Ubisoft Reveals Skull & Bones, A New Pirate Game

Ubisoft Reveals Skull & Bones, A New Pirate Game

Players lived a pirate fantasy in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, and Ubisoft is building on that foundation with an all-new game called Skull & Bones.

Though the setting and mechanics seem similar to Black Flag, Skull & Bones is unconnected to the Assassin's Creed series. Instead, it starts fresh in the Indian Ocean in the year 1721, during the Golden Age of Piracy. It is a tactical action game focused on naval combat, featuring a dynamic world that lets you play solo or with friends. 

For example, one mode Ubisoft showcased is called Loot Hunt, which pits two teams of five players against each other. Using the winds for proper positioning and strategic combinations of ship classes and weapons, you attempt to out-think and out-maneuver your competition.

First The Crew 2 Trailer Shows Off Multi-Vehicle Races

First The Crew 2 Trailer Shows Off Multi-Vehicle Races

The original The Crew focused on criminal organizations and an extended drives across the United States. Judging by the first trailer for the sequel, it looks like Ubisoft and developer Ivory Tower is taking a slightly different approach.

In a stylish trailer in which the fold seemed to fold in on itself in order to showcase the diverse array of tracks you'll be racing on, we got to see the increased variety The Crew 2 looks to offer. Instead of simply racing on flat roads with cars, races involved cars, motorbikes, planes, and boats racing all at once, which adds an intersting element of choosing the best path for your vehicle of choice during a given race.

The story also looks to be different. Rather than following the exploits of a criminal organization, the story focuses on a more straight-edge pro racing narrative, in which you establish yourself as the best racer in multiple disciplines. There's also a heavy element of modern social media exposure and presence. The game will be out in early 2018, with a playable beta hitting before then.

Here, they interact with Mario and his friends. Unfortunately, the Rabbids appearance has caused the Mushrom Kingdom to become unstable, so the two groups will have to work together to save reality.
