Ubisoft to launch Skull and Bones open beta ahead of February release

Shodan/ Febbraio 15, 2024/ Skulls and Bones

After years of doubt, Skull and Bones is finally arriving with Ubisoft planning to launch an open beta for the game ahead of its Feb. 16 release. The company also released information on the Skull and Bones endgame and a roadmap for year one content.

The seafaring pirate sim has seen numerous delays and rumors of development hell since 2017, and many were doubtful the game would ever be released. As time went by, and especially in these past couple of years, Skull and Bone seemed more and more like a real deal—and it is. Ubisoft’s upcoming title, based on the Assassin’s Creed 4 Black Flag naval combat, will be in open beta Feb. 8-11, with the full game coming five days later on Feb. 16, the company announced Jan. 25. On PC, players can embark on the oceans in the Ubisoft and Epic Games stores, and it will also be available for all new gen consoles. Cross-play and cross-progression will be enabled.
