Skull and Bones is Ubisoft’s open-seas pirate ’em up

The splendid ship combat of Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag is returning, in a way, reworked and expanded to become a standalone game. Ubisoft today announced Skull and Bones [official site], an online pirate 'em up with players pootling around the ocean scrapping and looting. A crude analogy: like like Black Flag meets World of Warships and maybe The Division. Here, see some salty action…
