Skull and Bones is a tactical action pirate game from Ubisoft


This industry is a sea of thieves

While Assassin's Creed moves on to Egypt, the Black Flag strain of Ubisoft -- Ubisoft Singapore -- is returning to piracy with a new series set in 1721, Skull and Bones. The debut trailer featured something close to that ridiculous Pirates of the Caribbean slow-motion destruction scene.

I guess Sea of Thieves shouldn't have taken so long to come out. The second clip, embedded below, is a little less self-serious, showing off the multiplayer and an evolution of the very impressive ship captain'ing that was a surprise high point in Assassin's Creed III. And it's not just blowing opponents out of the water -- you get to board other boats and wreck house.

Also there is an enormous kraken, of course.
