Skull & Bones Has Caused Playerbase of Assassin’s Creed Black Flag To Grow On Xbox

Picture this. You’re about to go watch a movie or TV show that has been “hyped up” by those who made it, and you’re curious what it will turn out like. However, once you’re through parts of it, or most of it, depending on how patient you are, you realize the hard truth: this isn’t anything close to what has been promised. Or, just as bad, the promise of it “being like that show/movie you like” wasn’t true in the slightest. What do you do when that happens? Simple, you go back to what was good! Something Skull & Bones has unintentionally done for itself.

How Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is steeped in Persian mythology

It’s safe to say that Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown has made a lasting impression on us. Effortlessly reinvigorating a franchise on life support, Ubisoft Montpellier brought the Prince back from his recent lacklustre misadventures in 3D to return him to his glorious origins of 2D; crafting a sumptuous metroidvania in the process. With an intricate world to explore, precision platforming, vast double-hard bosses, and kick-ass combat, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown wowed upon release. It wasn’t just the gameplay that scored big though, it was also the authentic manner in which Persian folklore and history were weaved into proceedings. Indeed, Persian Mythology and Culture seemed to have a much greater influence on The Lost Crown than in previous games in the storied history of the Prince of Persia franchise.

I feel like it has been a while since we had an open-world pirate game, but we got one for 2024. Ubisoft and one of Ubisoft’s Original Games Skull and Bones which was first announced back in 2017 by Ubisoft Singapore at an E3 event. I remember because I was there when it first got announced and I was excited because I love video games that incorporate wooden ships and pirates. This game when I first heard about it, I remember when I was a kid I used to play a lot of Sid Meier’s Pirates which still to this day is one of my favorite pirate games ever. Even though Skull and Bones is nowhere on the same level as Sid Meier’s Pirates, it has some good elements, and that is something we will talk about right now.

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown Review: A Bold New Path for the Prince

In the past few years, Metroidvanias and action-adventure platformers have seen a resurgence. Ori and the Blind Forest, Hollow Knight and Dead Cells have breathed new life into the genre, bringing fresh ideas to its established ethos. There's also a renewed appetite for challenging games. Dark Souls came around in 2011 and redefined what one could take away from a video game. They can be fun, sure. But they can be punishing, too. Fast forward a decade, and we now have people playing Elden Ring with a steering wheel. Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, Ubisoft's latest Metroidvania action-adventure platformer, assimilates elements from these games and subgenres to tread familiar ground, but it does so in its own unique ways.

Every video game developer, even the most successful ones out there, has a game that sometimes “haunts them” because they work on it so much or have tried so hard to make it “worthy,” yet it doesn’t come out the way they desired. Furthermore, it doesn’t come out in a way that pleases fans, and thus, no one wins. The irony is that you could say that about SEVERAL video game titles in the last year alone, showing a rather disturbing trend in the video game industry. But today, we’re talking about Skull & Bones, the pirate game that Ubisoft has been toiling on for over a decade.

So when Ubisoft opened the game to the public with an open beta recently, I was intrigued to see how the close-to-final product looked. I’ve been known to enjoy a spot of piracy, and Ubisoft has the incredible Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag in its back catalogue, after all.

Ubisoft has reported their earnings for the third quarter of their fiscal year 2024 (which runs from the beginning of April 2023 to the end of March 2024) and things are looking somewhat up for the Assassin’s Creed publisher following rough patches over the last few years. With revenue of €606 million, Q3 was down a bit year-on-year, likely due to somewhat disappointing performance of Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, but Ubisoft is expecting a good Q4 due to Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown and Skull and Bones with Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot somewhat questionably referring to the latter as a “AAAA” game.

Skull and Bones is a pirate game, so people will instantly assume that it has PvP, myself included. However, the game doesn’t tackle PvP the same as many had expected, so you can’t simply attack any other crew you see. So, how does PvP work?

Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR Sold Below Expectations, Ubisoft Says

In November, Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed franchise made the jump to virtual reality with Assassin’s Creed Nexus VR, an action-adventure title touting the series’ trademark stealth and parkour mechanics, translated to a VR experience.

A live service game’s mere existence seems to go hand-in-hand with skepticism, especially where consistent and satisfactory post-launch support is concerned, and when the live service game in question is Skull and Bones, you can bet your bottom dollar that skepticism is going to be even more intense. The game has had enough trouble getting to launch as it is, being waylaid by everything from development issues and reboots to delays and more, so exactly how well is Ubisoft going to be able to support the game and ensure that it can maintain the sort of player base any live service game needs in order to continue justifying its existence.
