Skull and Bones is an upcoming open-world shooter game set in the vast open world of piracy.
In this article, we'll take a look at whether the game is free-to-play or not.

Skull and Bones is an action-adventure that is going to open for beta testing and ready to be launched soon. It is an open-world game on its way to bring a hefty load of action. The game was open for beta testing between 8th and 11th February 2024.

In this article, we'll answer some burning questions surrounding the game and if it is free to play or not. We'll also answer some other questions regarding the game's platform and more.

Skull and Bones: Beta Testing

Skull and Bones is an action-adventure, multiplayer shooter video game developed by Ubisoft. This is easily one of the most highly awaited game in the gaming community. And with the game's beta testing and a worldwide release so close, the community is ablaze with excitement.

The game began its development in 2013 and has finally come to fruition. The open beta testing for the deluxe version of the game ran between 8th and 11th February 2024.

Players who partake in the beta testing will be entitled to a few cosmetic incentives by Ubisoft. These include the following:

  • Sir Reginald Grim Sail emblem

  • Tarred Sail pattern

  • Sign Language emote

  • ‘Cookie’ the lemur pet

  • ‘Basilisk I’ Culverin weapon

Is Skull and Bones Free to Play?

Beta testing is an opportunity for players to check out the game for free. However, the game is not a free-to-play action adventure. Players will have to dig deep in their pockets.

The game will come at a whopping cost of $69.99 USD. Many have been wondering about the game's monetary value, but the Ubisoft CEO has defended his decision to prize the game, calling it a "quadruple A" game. He says that the game is fully-fledged and complete, which will become clearer as people try it out.

While Yves Guillemot refers to the game as being quadruple A, players are yet to see how this statement stands out. Only time will tell how the game performs.

Players React to Skull and Bones Pricing

While Ubisoft has made its stance clear on pricing the game, players have not embraced the decision with open arms. The common consensus is that this is an attempt to make up for the company's losses by making players pay for the game. Others disagree with Ubisoft, given the overwhelmingly large number of delays that the game's release has gone through.

Skull and Bones will be available on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
