Skull & Bones has drawn attention to itself in recent months, particularly due to its turbulent development history. Accordingly, it is not surprising that Ubisoft’s pirate adventure has been postponed again. Recently, however, there was a new sign of life from Ubisoft Singapore. Finally, they announced a new Skull & Bones live stream that would showcase new gameplay with a focus on the game’s lore.
New material, little enthusiasm?
Despite the new gameplay footage, it doesn’t look like it’s particularly impressive to viewers or the press. Insider gaming cites the village looting shown on the stream as a negative example. Instead of actively looting a village yourself, you simply press a button as soon as you are near a port or a beach.
A meager open world or a combat system that is not particularly innovative also catch the eye of the website negatively. But the YouTube comments on the stream are anything but effusively positive. Here, too, the material shown was not necessarily convincing and was recorded as uninspired and simple. So the question arises to what extent the Ubisoft title has to be prepared for similar reactions when it is released. The release date of the title is also currently unknown.
