Skull and Bones: Hoist the Jolly Roger and Set Sail!

Ahoy there, mateys! The long wait is finally over, and the treacherous seas of Ubisoft's Skull and Bones are ready to be conquered! Avast ye landlubbers, for the open beta sets sail on February 7th, and it's time to unleash your inner pirate!

Cast your minds back to 2017 when Skull and Bones was but a mere expansion to Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag. But like a ship caught in a tempest, the game has evolved, undergone changes, and sailed a tumultuous sea of delays. Now, it stands tall as its own grand adventure. Prepare to embark on a journey from lowly pirate to legendary captain, as you engage in naval battles, daring exploration, and more.

Mark your calendars, me hearties! Ubisoft has announced that the open beta will commence on February 7th at 9 pm EST and will come to an end on February 11th at 6 pm EST. Load your cannons and prepare for battle by preloading the beta starting from February 6th at 4 am EST. This grand adventure awaits all Xbox Series X and S, PlayStation 5, and PC users. PC enthusiasts can chart their course through Ubisoft Connect or the Epic Games Store. And the best part? Your progress during the beta will carry over to the full game, along with some exclusive rewards, including ship cosmetics, an emote, a pet, and a weapon. Shiver me timbers!

During this open beta extravaganza, you'll have the opportunity to encounter various factions as you navigate the treacherous Red Isle, the African coast, the vast open seas, and the mysterious East Indies. But that's not all, me hearties! If you spy upon one of your favorite Twitch streamers sailing the digital seas for an hour, you'll earn the coveted Snow Leopard pet Twitch drop. Aye, it's a bounty worth claiming!

Now, ye scurvy dogs, pay heed! The beta may have its limits, but fear not, for the adventure doesn't end at the level cap. Even after you've reached the rank of Brigand (Tier 6 Rank 1), you can still explore, plunder, and complete activities to your heart's content. And let it be known that the opportunity to customize your ship, a feature beloved by many, awaits ye in this open beta.

But that's just the tip of the iceberg, me hearties! Skull and Bones has unveiled its year-one roadmap, promising four thrilling seasons filled to the brim with new missions, world events, and unlockable treasures. Each season will introduce a fearsome Pirate Lord for ye to challenge once ye've become a force to be reckoned with.

Arr! Some skeptics may argue that this open beta feels more like a demo, and they may have a point. But avast, me hearties, for Skull and Bones is an ambitious voyage, and we're hoping it will be a treasure trove of pirate delights. So, keep yer expectations in check, but allow yerselves to dream of the plunder and glory that awaits ye on the high seas.

So, me hearties, gather your crew, polish yer cutlasses, and hoist the Jolly Roger high! Skull and Bones is about to set sail on February 16th, 2024, and it's time to embark on the pirate adventure of a lifetime. Prepare to be dazzled by the vast open world, engage in epic battles, and forge your legend as a feared captain. The seas are calling, me hearties! Will you answer?
