Ahoy, matey! Gather 'round, ye scurvy dogs, for I bring ye tidings of the most anticipated pirate extravaganza of the century! Set sail on February 16, me hearties, as Ubisoft unleashes the treasure-laden open-world action-adventure RPG, Skull and Bones, upon the gaming world. Prepare to embark on a swashbuckling journey across the Indian Ocean, where fame, fortune, and grog await ye at every turn. But before ye weigh anchor, let's answer the burning question on every pirate's mind: Will this be a crossplay adventure for all?
Seven long years have passed since Skull and Bones first set sail in the harbor of our imaginations. This pirate-themed MMORPG has been brewing in Ubisoft's secret cove, meticulously crafted to give ye landlubbers an experience fit for a true buccaneer. Picture yerself exploring a vast open world teeming with archipelagos and hidden islands, each waiting to reveal their secrets. And oh, the sights ye shall behold! The untamed Indian Ocean stretches before ye, its azure waves crashing against the hull of yer mighty vessel. The visuals shall dazzle ye like a chest brimming with sparkling doubloons.
But enough about the scenery, me hearties! Let's delve into the heart of this adventure. Skull and Bones offers ye not one, not two, but three glorious ship types to choose from. And fear not, ye can customize 'em to yer heart's content. Fancy a sleek and nimble sloop? Or perhaps ye prefer a hulking galleon that strikes fear into the hearts of even the most hardened scallywags. The choice is yers, matey! With full control over naval combat, ye can unleash broadsides, maneuver through treacherous waters, and engage in thrilling battles that will make even Davy Jones himself take notice.
Now, let's talk about the crew, shall we? Ye can navigate these treacherous waters alone or, better yet, gather a crew of three salty sea dogs. Together, ye shall conquer the High Seas, plundering and pillaging to yer heart's desire. But be warned, me hearties, danger lurks in every shadowy cove. Ubisoft has designed a world teeming with both PvE encounters and PvP battles against real-world players. Brace yerselves for epic clashes as ye strive to be the most feared captain on these digital waters.
Ah, but here's the real treasure, me hearties: crossplay! Ubisoft has hoisted the Jolly Roger of unity, allowing pirates from all platforms to sail together. Whether ye be a PC buccaneer, a PS5 prowler, an Xbox Series X conqueror, or even an Amazon Luna legend, ye shall join forces and raise ye grog-filled tankards in camaraderie. From the moment ye set foot aboard yer vessel, ye can invite ye mates, regardless of the platform they call home. The crossplay functionality shall be available from day one, ensuring no scallywag is left stranded on a deserted island.
But that's not all, me hearties! Ubisoft has truly unleashed the Kraken with the ability to host sessions for up to 20 players, with crossplay functionality across all platforms. Imagine the chaos and merriment when 20 ships clash in a battle for supremacy! The High Seas shall become a theater of pure pirate pandemonium. So gather ye crews, raise yer cutlasses, and prepare for a raucous adventure where the more, the merrier!
In the world of Skull and Bones, it matters not who be playin' on what platform. For together, united under the black flag, we shall sail the High Seas as one. Ubisoft has ensured that no pirate shall be left marooned on a distant shore. So ready yer sea legs, me hearties, and prepare to embark on the most unforgettable crossplay adventure ever to grace the gaming world. Skull and Bones awaits, and the call of the High Seas grows louder with each passing day. May yer aim be true, yer plunder abundant, and may the winds of fortune forever fill yer sails!
