Yes, it's official! Ubisoft's long-awaited pirate game Skull & Bones will be starting its journey on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S (there's no Xbox One version, sorry!) on November 8th, 2022.

In the game, your goal will be to "rise from an outcast to an infamous pirate", playing alone or with up to two friends in either a PvE-only or a PvEvP experience. Described as "the ultimate pirate fantasy", you'll be growing your infamy by completing contracts to gather more resources and opportunities, crafting up to 12 ships and customising them in a variety of ways, and engaging in brutal naval combat with a multitude of powerful weapons and armours.

The game is available to pre-order on Xbox from today, with the standard version available for £69.99 / $69.99, and the Premium Edition at £94.99 / $99.99. The latter contains a bonus pack, two extra missions and more.

At the end of the 17th century, tales of a legendary heist attracted young outcasts from all over the world. In search of untold fortunes, ordinary men and women headed far from home. Armed with only their instincts to survive, they risked it all for a chance to attain immeasurable riches.

Enter the perilous paradise of Skull and Bones™ inspired by the Indian Ocean during the Golden Age of Piracy, as you overcome the odds and rise from an outcast to an infamous pirate.
