Skull and Bones is Ubisoft’s Second-Highest Engaged Game

Ubisoft says players are enjoying Skull and Bones despite the game sitting with under 1 million active users. According to the studio, Skull and Bones is its second-highest engaged game with players spending more than four hours a day on average sailing the seas and plundering treasure.

Ubisoft says the four hours of average daily playtime has put Skull and Bones up there as the second-highest engaged game from the studio. However, the studio didn’t share any other stats regarding the game including sales figures and the actual current player count.

We also need to keep in mind that although four hours is impressive, Skull and Bones is a very slow game and sailing the seas to complete objectives takes much longer than most games. So players spend more time in the game getting less done.

In my review, I complained about the game’s snail pace saying that Skull and Bones is a shallow and tedious naval game that struggled to master any of its mechanics.

Ubisoft has just released the first season for Skull and Bones called Raging Tides. The season not only adds quality-of-life changes but also new missions, world events and cosmetics to unlock and earn while you do all the new content.

  • Tides of Terror: Increasingly difficult seasonal events where players will fight against La Peste’s Fleet of Pestilence. Players will eventually go against him in a World Event, culminating in a final showdown where they will seek out his base of operations, the Blighted Bastion, for an epic battle.
  • New World Events: Players will encounter Elite Warships from megacorporations like the DMC (Opwelling), and local factions like the Clan of Fara (Mizerja). Merchant Convoys carrying high-value loot will also be present along trade routes in the Indian Ocean. New Bounties: Player can pick up bounties leading them to terrifying legends such as the mysterious Ghost Ship (Rode Maangodin) that haunts the Open Seas, or the terrifying Sea Monster (Zamaharibu) that awaits unsuspecting pirates in the depths.
  • New Leaderboard rewards: Higher-tier weapons and equipment. Seasonal Smuggler Pass: Three free tracks allow players to acquire new gameplay items and blueprints to further optimize and customize their ship’s loadout. There will also be free cosmetics from captain and ship cosmetic sets to resources and Pieces of Eight.  The Premium pass also adds extra cosmetics and Gold premium currency.

Skull and Bones is now available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
