Less Than A Month After Launch, Skull And Bones Has Gone On Sale

The pirate action-adventure has been discounted in the UK.

Story Highlights

  • Skull and Bones is the latest pirate adventure game by Ubisoft, finally released earlier last month.
  • The title has received a discount in the UK in recent times which reduced its MSRP to £49.85 as opposed to £69.99.
  • It hasn’t even been a full month since Skull and Bones came out, and a sales offer is already up for it.

Skull and Bones hasn’t gotten off to the start that it was probably expecting, sitting at a 3.5/10 User Score on Metacritic at the moment, but in case you’d like to give it a shot and are situated in the UK, retailer Hit has the game up for sale on both platforms—Xbox Series X|S and PS5. As opposed to its £69.99 default MSRP, you can grab the pirate adventure for as low as £49.85 at the moment on the marketplace at hand.

VGC tells us that popular US retailer Best Buy is also handing out a $25 discount for Skull and Bones, but it seems that the listings on the platform have now been reverted to full pricing shortly after it was cut back originally.

For reference, the title came out only about three weeks ago, with Ubisoft calling it a “AAAA” project while keeping it priced at $69.99, which is its second game costing that much this generation, with the first one being Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora.

For those not in the know, Skull and Bones has been delayed a plethora of times, following its initial announcement in 2017, with development on the project actually taking off way back in 2013, following the glaring success of Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag. The latter’s naval combat was what inspired the concept of Skull and Bones, but unfortunately, things didn’t quite turn out as fans expected.

eXputer rated the the pirate adventure 3/5 in its dedicated review, with author Moiz Banoori remarking, “[The game] falls short of being a deserving successor to Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, and it also lacks substantial elements to support Ubisoft’s assertion that it is the first-ever AAAA title.” If you’re a new player, though, here are the 5 best ships in Skull and Bones to test your hand at.
