Skull And Bones Season 1 Now Live With More Content And Improvements

Raging Tides brings new world events, a new pirate lord, and more.

Story Highlights

  • Skull and Bones, the much-awaited pirate adventure by Ubisoft, has finally been released after 11 years.
  • The game, being live service, just received its first seasonal content drop for free, called Raging Tides. 
  • New potent foes, more rivals, and a swath of more stuff have been added to the title as of today. 

Skull and Bones, one of Ubisoft’s latest live service releases, is now loaded with all its season 1 content, which the devs are referring to as Raging Tides. Talk about more season contracts, a Smuggler Pass (which is the game’s version of a Battle Pass), and a whole ton of gameplay adjustments for the masses, including bug fixes, and performance optimization enhancements.

Skull and Bones Season 1 is out now! Join the fray and face new, powerful enemies including the vicious Plague Lord Phillipe La Peste, Elite Warships, and more. Fight for your free share of free loot amidst the Indian Ocean in this raging first season,” reads the post announcement on X.

The highlight of Raging Tides is unequivocally Philippe La Peste, the “Plague King,” a major antagonist that you’ll be fighting toward in Skull and Bones for the time being. Sinking ships from the Plague King’s Fleet of Pestilence is going to earn you notoriety. Sink enough and you’ll fall under their radar, making it possible for the player to engage the Plague King in some sort of a final battle.

Ubisoft’s long-time-coming pirate adventure game is finally out, and I must admit, it’s not looking too good as far as critic and user reviews are factored into account, combined with my own personal experience, where I just couldn’t sit down to appreciate the kind of quality on display. eXputer’s 3/5 review of Skull and Bones also points out poorly built character mechanics, repetitive gameplay, and lackluster land access.
