Ubisoft has released a new video in a dev livestream following an official announcement that the pirate-themed game Skull and Bones would be postponed for the sixth time.
The entire livestream lasted only about half an hour, so it's worth a look if you want to learn more about the game while waiting for it to be released.
Investigations are a game where the player must look for treasure to steal. These investigations are similar to sidequests in Skull and Bones, but they have an additional layer of narrative that relates to the world's factions.
Plundering in Skull and Bones involves your entire crew as you attempt to deplete historic sites or historical sites. It's a complex system, with some of your crew members entering the settlement to steal the loot while you battle hostile ships and artillery. Additionally, it makes the enemy more aggressive with longer periods of reinforcements.
The developers of Skull and Bones gave the impression that you'll want to own a variety of ships. The game has its fair share of boats and ships of all shapes and sizes, some of which are better suited for travel, combat, cargo, and hunting.
Sea shanties are not a problem in a bona fide pirate game, and Skull and Bones has quite a few of them. They vary from the standard pirate shanties to those that are performed in specific languages. It also adds some novelty to the game.
When Skull and Bones launches on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, you'll be able to command your own pirate ship.
