Now that Ubisoft's open beta for Skull & Bones has officially wrapped up, we can turn our attention to the team's full release - which is coming around faster than you might think. While the game's standard edition launches on February 16, you can actually go hands-on with the pirate adventure three days early on Xbox!

Yep, the Skull & Bones Premium Edition launches February 13th at midnight local time - which is just hours away here in the UK at the time of writing. Better yet, that version is also included in the Ubisoft Plus subscription service on Xbox, so if you're interested in playing early, you don't have to fork out for the expensive Premium Edition! Result.

This bumper edition of Skull & Bones contains some extra DLC and will soon be a part of the service alongside a bunch of other games including Assassin's Creed Mirage, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown and Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora to name a few. Check out the full lineup down below:

Oh, and there's more. If you took part in last week's open beta you can carry your progress over to the full game using your Ubisoft account, so there's no messing about starting from scratch! If you did play the beta we'd love to hear your thoughts on it - we're gathering some feedback elsewhere on Pure Xbox ahead of the game's full launch.
