Preview: Ubisoft's naval PvP in Skull and Bones is really fun if one of your team is dressed as a pirate

Take what ye can.                            I'm going to tell you what everyone else has said about Skull and Bones: it's basically the naval combat bit of Assassin's Creed: Black Flag, but if that was the whole game. If another company had made it they'd probably be getting sued by Ubisoft, but I'm pretty sure you can't sue yourself. That doesn't necessarily mean Skull and Bones won't be fun, though. It helps if there's a man on your team dressed as a pirate, shouting pirate appropriate battle cries into the mic.The game I played was a 5v5 match, where the aim was simple: steal more booty than the rival team (or rival flotilla, more accurately), and escape with it when the pirate hunters arrive. Before the game you get to pick your ship class. There's genuinely a long range gunner, a massive heavy, and a smaller, nippier high damage dealer. Or ranged, tank, and DPS. All that's missing is a healer class.So, at the helm of my DPS tall ship, I set out. Our group swiftly cut down a group of merchant vessels for their plunder, and then almost immediately set about attacking the rival team, in defiance of the actual point of the game. Sinking enemies was a good way to get their gold, but apparently if you ram the largest enemy vessel you'll be sunk yourself, and they get all your loot. The trouble is that pitched battles are more fun than tactical ones, so I imagine 'Keep the loot!' will be the Skull and Bones equivalent of 'Stay on the goddamn payload!'Read More »
