Skull and Bones’ release is imminent, and after nearly seven years of waiting, the game has a lot to prove. With combinations of multiplayer and single-player elements, here’s everything you need to know about how it works.
Skull and Bones doesn’t feature land combat, preferring to focus on gripping naval battles between rival captains.
Additionally, this game has limited customization and RPG elements, following a similar pattern to other games from the developer, like The Division. With a full plan for the coming year already announced, the future of the game is clear.
But before you dive into this game, here’s everything you need to know about how it works multiplayer.
Skull and Bones features co-op for up to 3 players
The main multiplayer feature is that Skull and Bones allows up to 3 player co-op. This group of players is made up of either friends or random players. This is especially useful for tackling the game’s more difficult objectives.
There’s a strong argument that this is how the game is supposed to be played, and from our limited experience in the beta, playing solo makes some missions really difficult. It’s unclear whether the developer will rely more on this aspect as the game progresses.
The servers can accommodate up to 20 players at a time and the game launches when this maximum is reached. These experiences can vary greatly, with some players forming magnificent coalitions, while others engage in destruction. The game’s beta is scheduled to end on February 11, before the full launch on February 16.
