Skull & Bones has just been announced at E3. The game at first glance appears to be Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag minus the signature white hood, and frankly I see nothing wrong with that.

Skull & Bones is a pirate ship-battle game, where teams of pirates will battle over treasure in a shared-world ocean in order to secure the most riches. The battles look epic and explosive, bits of the ships being blasted off in chunks and boarding actions chock full of sword swinging goodness and musketry.

Skull & Bones is set for a Fall 2018 release.
