Skull & Bones Could Be Getting A Release Date Soon

It's officially been rated by the ESRB.

Skull and Bones has been on the horizon for several years now as Ubisoft's answer to the pirate RPG genre. It's been in developmental hell since 2017 and only recently was it announced that it is expected to see the light of day within the next year. The game is meant to mimic the golden age of piracy as you travel across the sea to become the most infamous pirate around. Considering that, the latest announcement from the ESRB regarding the rating it was given has been officially announced to be M-for-Mature.

"This is a naval-combat action game in which players assume the role of a shipwrecked outcast on a journey to become a pirate captain. As players take on missions, they can explore settlements and engage in dramatic sea battles. From a first-person perspective, players command their crew to shoot cannons at rivals (e.g., warships, merchant ships, settlements/forts) in attempts to obtain loot/goods. Enemy ships can be rammed and boarded, resulting in brief cutscenes of crew members shooting or slashing at each other. Combat is highlighted by gunfire/cannon fire, explosions, and blood-splatter effects. Some territories depict corpses impaled on spikes or hanging from nooses; beaches may depict corpses and large bloodstains in the aftermath of battle. Settlements occasionally contain brothels and prostitutes that call out to players when approached (e.g., “Come spend your coin all over me”; “The price of my a*se goes up tomorrow, so buy a piece today!”). Players can also engage in quests to bring poppies to opium dens, which are depicted with patrons lying on couches smoking pipes. The words “f**k” and “sh*te” appear in the dialogue."

It isn't surprising considering the content of the game and even less so because of its shift to a live-service approach as of 2020. A few leaks that were unveiled earlier this year showed off a few other aspects of what we can expect including an "infamy" scale that can grow by taking on contracts. Of course, there are also ship fighting mechanics that allow you to fight other pirates and pillage their ships for treasure. You're also given the opportunity to craft new ships and equipment in order to manage your ship's health and increase your crew's morale. Hopefully, we will get to see more of the game now that there's an official rating for North America.
