Ahoy there, privateers. Our team is hard at work polishing and balancing the experience ahead of the worldwide launch.

We're very eager for you all to get your hands on Skull and Bones and dive in headfirst to the dangerous and exciting world of building your own pirate empire.

Along with this news, we have learned the company will be holding an Open Beta will be held ahead of launch so that players get a better look at the game beforehand. You'll be able to take on the game's unique version of a piracy fantasy and naval battles set in the 17th-century Indian Ocean. The move was basically made so that the company could make the game better rather than rush out a product that would need to be patched a dozen times over, which we're absolutely fine with as we'd rather have a complete game than something that's broken. We'll keep an eye out on this one for more updates in the months to come.
