At their E3 press conference earlier today, Ubisoft announced a new pirate game titled Skull and Bones. The game is being developed by Ubisoft Singapore, the studio behind the naval systems in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, which seems to have been a major influence on the design of Skull and Bones. It takes place in the Indian Ocean in 1721, where you take command of your own ship and can sail around an open, connected world by yourself or as part of a "gang" of pirates with other players, fighting and looting other ships as you go.
A preview of multiplayer gameplay was shown at the conference, which you can watch below:
Here's a behind-the-scenes video from the development team explaining more about the game:
The game is scheduled to launch in late 2018 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
