Ubisoft’s Skull & Bones may not be debuting in 2018, but there was a new nautical combat mode unveiled at the company’s E3 presentation. In an extended video, Ubisoft showed off the Hunting Grounds, a mode that unleashes the players on the Indian Ocean as they track and trap merchant ships while on the never-ending quest for treasure. First, players will have the option to customize their pirate ships from the comfort of their safe port. But once a ship sets sail, even aligned pirates may turn on each other for the gold.
This mode also lets players team up against a common foe. In this footage, four pirate vessels participated in a coordinated attack against a war ship. It takes strategy and perhaps a bit of luck to sink the enemy, but it can be done. However, there is no honor among thieves in this game. Allies can quickly become adversaries at a moment’s notice. Anything goes on the high seas, especially in a cutthroat industry like this!
Skull & Bones doesn’t have an official release date yet, but it’s expected to set sail in either 2019 or 2020.
