Skull and Bones will boast a single-player campaign in addition to multiplayer battles

Pirates are, like, so so hot right now. At least if you look at the multiplayer gaming space, which now has two promising titles from major studios racing toward release. One of these is Skull and Bones, a recently announced Ubisoft title that we got to check out at E3.

For all of the talk of open world sailing and clashes between players, some have wondered if there is any room for the solo pirate who wants to sail the seven seas without others crowding around. Turns out that, yes, this will be a definite option, as Skull and Bones is going to feature a single-player narrative campaign in addition to its multiplayer component.

An Ubisoft representative confirmed this aspect of the game in a statement: “[Skull and Bones] will offer a narrative campaign which will be integrated into the game and will not be something aside of the multiplayer experience. In this campaign, players will encounter iconic characters and memorable rival pirates. More details will be shared at a later date.”

So its CoD but pirates.

Not even close to an MMO.

I wonder if the single-player will be open world or a linear adventure? I keep hoping for an open-world (open-sea?) pirate RPG in the vein of Elder Scrolls or even Two Worlds (I liked that game, am I weird?). I’ve got a few on my PC that serve like Carribean, Sid Meier’s Pirates!, Port Royale, etc etc but nothing really captures that RPG feel.

Port Royale was such a disappointment for me.

Yes, I would love a modern open world single-player game, where I could choose to be merchant, regular navy, privateer, or pirate.

Basically a modern Privateer on the open ocean instead of space … oh hell yes! And some 3rd/1st person stuff on land as well.

so we’ll meet the dread pirate François l’Olonnais?

Or Ching Shih or Anne Bonney

Ching Shih

AFAIK the game’s scenario is the Indian Ocean, so yeah, Ching Shih is a far more likely character than Carib-bound François l’Olonnais.
