by ubisoft skull and bones It finally appears to be emerging from the depths of development hell. As reported by Kotakutest footage leaked online, showcasing the biggest glimpse of live pirate adventure seen since his announcement at E3 2017.
In the video, a voiceover explains some of the main details of skull and bones. A stat called “infamy” is used to measure how good players are at being pirates. Players can increase their infamy by raiding ships, completing contracts, and finding hidden treasures. Higher levels of infamy grant players access to more difficult contracts and rewards, and failure will result in the loss of some infamy.
Players will start out with a modest pirate ship that they can then upgrade with collected materials. The captain’s job is to make sure their ship is stocked with food, water and ammunition so they don’t risk their crew mutiny due to lack of provisions.
Ubisoft confirmed that the leaked images were legitimate for Kotaku and said he would share more details about skull and bones early. skull and bones’ official twitter account even joked that more details about the game would be released shortly after the leak was published.
skull and bones is being developed by Ubisoft’s Singapore studio which has been subject to workplace harassment investigations, discriminatory wages and an ineffective human resources department. Earlier this year, the Singapore authorities closed the investigation taking no action, stating that the studio pays its employees fairly and that it properly handled harassment claims. Other reported issues in the study have been presented as possible reasons why skull and bones has taken a long time to ship, but according to sources who spoke with Kotakuthe game could finally ship later this year.
