The first season of Skull and Bones is out now on PC, Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5. While Skull and Bones launched to mixed reviews earlier this month, the launch of the first season is expected to give the game a much-needed boost. Indeed, the new season adds new content and unlockable rewards, all the while making various gameplay tweaks and changes. Titled Raging Tides, Skull and Bones Season 1 adds a new Legendary Pirate Lord for players to battle.

Ubisoft explains more: “Each season, Legendary Pirate Lords arrive on these shores, threatening your rising smuggling empire. Amidst the torrent of ambition and turmoil, your choices will define your legacy as a Kingpin.

“Philippe La Peste, the dread pirate lord of the Caribbean arrives in the Indian Ocean in search of power, riches, and a cure for his festering afflictions.”

Players will also be able to battle new Elite Bosses, including the Zamaharibu sea monster, as well as the Rode Maangodin.

Likewise, Ubisoft will introduce a selection of world events, as well as unlockable rewards such as a ship with healing qualities and a lightweight cannon.

If you’re thinking of picking up Skull and Bones but would like to try before you buy, remember to check out the free trial on all platforms.
